When to travel to the Okavango Delta

The best time to visit the Okavango Delta largely depends on the weather. You can choose between the dry season (from May to October) or the wet season (from November to April).

If you prefer clear skies, cooler temperatures, and excellent wildlife viewing, plan your visit during the dry season. Animals gather around water sources, making it easier to spot them. The months of June to August are particularly popular.

If you want to see the delta in its full splendor with lush greenery and plenty of birdlife, consider visiting during the wet season. However, some areas may become inaccessible due to high water levels. The wet season can be from November to April.
