What is the best time of the year to go birding in Botswana?
In terms of birding, let it be said at the outset, there is no bad time of the year to visit this country.

The most productive time of the year in which to see birds (when the number of bird species is at its highest with migratory species having arrived to join Botswana’s resident species) is late November to March.

Over 150 different species may be recorded in a day at this time. But remember: birding in the dry months can still be good as certain species of woodland birds, in particular the passerines, having completed their breeding during the rains, form multi-species “bird parties” which forage together.
