Twice daily game drives take place early in the morning and again in the late afternoon to coincide with the sunset. Specially designed Land Cruisers take guests through the spectacular wildlife regions where big game encounters and fantastic photographic opportunities present themselves.
No game drive would be complete without a cooler box full of ice waiting to be unleashed at the most beautiful time of day. On occasion, guests will arrive at a pre-setup table laden with snacks and drinks in a quiet spot in the bush, making for outstanding safari memories.
John Chase Safaris is the authentic experience, finely tuned by the people that know the country best. It is a family-run business of only the finest safari quality.
Botswana is a year-round destination and ‘when to go’ depends on preference regarding game viewing, landscape and weather. Winter months last from May to September, while the rainy summer season begins in November, ending in April.
Summer temperatures can be very high, however the rains bring beautiful greenery to the bush and many baby antelope are running around. This results in some good predator action. Birding is also fantastic in summer.
Winter is the more popular season in which is travel due to the lower temperatures and lack of rain. Animals congregate at the remaining waterholes after much water dries up, and game viewing is good.
The climate in Botswana brings very hot, dry periods and also very wet seasons. Winter (June, July, August) pack cold nights and mild, dry days. Depending on what time of year you travel, you will need certain essentials.
Bring along cameras, binoculars and recording gadgets to keep a record of the many wildlife sightings.
