Health precautions: When traveling in Botswana, you should avoid mosquito bites to prevent malaria. You may need to take prescription medicine before, during, and after your trip to prevent malaria, depending on your travel plans, such as where you are going, when you are traveling, and if you are spending a lot of time outdoors or sleeping outside. Talk to your doctor about how you can prevent malaria while traveling. Here at Bush Baby Calls we took upon ourselves to ensure that you do not have to worry about malaria because we provide mosquito nets in our tents. Although we do provide them it is very vital to vaccinate yourself before entering the Chobe district or Maun to be precise to avoid any misfortunes.
Climate: The climate of Botswana is divided into two sections being the dry (March to November) and the rainy seasons (November to March). Although most research shows that it’s advisable to visit Botswana in the dry season because of the large herds of elephant and buffalo but the rainy season also gives you pleasure in viewing the game because this is the only time you can see birds in their colorful spectrum as well as the zebras and antelopes giving birth in this time of abundance. It is up to an individual to visit our beautiful Botswana in a time that is best known to them but here at Bush Baby Calls we are saying game viewing is excellent throughout the whole year.
