5 Rivers – Explore Botswana in Summer

5 Rivers

If, like us, you keep your eyes open for the very best deals on African Safaris then this is one you should not miss.

The summer rains are a time of plenty in Africa; mammals are fat and healthy and for many species, it is a time to bring their young into the world. The bush is an emerald green, dotted with an abundance of flowers and migrant bird species arrive in their thousands.
For the experienced African traveller and specialist photographer, this is the time to visit southern Africa.

The 5 Rivers Special remains one of the best value offers during Botswana’s Green Season to visit the Desert Camps (Nxai Pan and Tau Pan) when they come alive at this time of year.
These are a great combination with Splash and Kwara, which are in permanent water locations in the Okavango Delta (which mean mokoro and boat activities can be done at this time of year)
