When to visit the Kalahari

The northern part of the Central Kalahari is best seen when it’s trickiest to get there – towards the end of the rains between February and late June. However, there is still good game to be had in the dry months between May and October and the cultural experience is unchanged.

The Makgadikgadi Pans and Boteti River areas are really dry-season places and many camps close over the rains. You should therefore try and plan your visit from around May – end October. Bear in mind that October will be pretty hot.
