Low season in Botswana (Dec to March) offers the same camps, guides and service at sometimes significantly less than 50% of high season prices. Some rain is possible, normally in short sharp showers, and some of the large herds of elephant and buffalo have dispersed from areas such as the Okavango Delta, but all territorial animals such as the predators remain, and the clear light and excellent bird watching, coupled with the fantastic value at excellent and really exclusive camps, make this a favourite time for many.
