When to Go

  • Generally, the best time to visit the delta is from July to September or October, when the water levels are high and the weather is dry.
  • Tracks can get extremely muddy and trails are often washed out during and after the rains. From January to March, the Moremi Game Reserve can be inaccessible, even with a state-of-the-art 4WD. Bear in mind that several lodges close down for part or all of the rainy season, but others revel in the abundant birdlife.
  • Mosquitoes are prevalent, especially in the wet season (November to March).
