Mogotlho Safari Lodge

Mogotlho Safari Lodge, named after the majestic Camel thorn trees of the area, is nestled between a Leadwood forest, overlooking the Khwai River, situated within a 68 000 hectare private concession in the Okavango Delta, Botswana. The exceptional location of Khwai makes it a regular host to elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, cheetah and wild dogs. This is the perfect location for observing the perennial drama of the African bushveld. This place provides easy access to the famous Moremi Game Reserve and Savute/Chobe Game Reserve for exciting day trips and is the perfect stopover between Maun and Kasane.

Need to Know

Climate:

The Delta's profuse greenery is not the result of a wet climate; rather, it is an oasis in an arid country. The average annual rainfall is 450mm (approximately one third that of its Angolan catchment area) and most of it falls between December and March in the form of heavy afternoon thunderstorms.

December to February are hot wet months with daytime temperatures as high as 40°C, warm nights, and humidity levels fluctuating between 50% and 80%. From March to May, the temperature becomes far more comfortable with a maximum of 30°C during the day and mild to cool nights. The rains quickly dry up leading into the dry, cold winter months of June to August. Daytime temperatures at this time of year are mild to warm, but the temperature begins to fall after sunset. Nights can be surprisingly cold in the Delta, with temperatures barely above freezing.

September to November sees the heat and atmospheric pressure build up once more as the dry season slides into the rainy season. October is the most challenging month for visitors - daytime temperatures often push past 40°C and the dryness is only occasionally broken by a sudden cloudburst.
