Some activities are based from Kasane and all activities are subject to availability.
The Chobe Enclave is home to the Ba-Subia – ruled by a King and various Chiefs.
Although Setswana is the official native language of Botswana, Subia is the unique language of the area. The locals farm predominantly with cattle and goats and there are no restrictions of the animal movements. Care is to be taken on the roads, especially at night when livestock and wildlife alike seek the warmth of the bitumen.
Botswana’s tourism months coincide with the seasons – when the rain starts falling around mid-November, most animals migrate from the Chobe to the Okavango Delta, this is generally the ‘low’ season. When the rain stops and the grass starts drying off around April/May, the animals migrate back to the Chobe. This is generally referred to as the ‘peak’ season – although June to September are the best game viewing months.
Northern Botswana is a high risk Malaria area. Foot and Mouth Disease is an ongoing issue – veterinary check-points are in place to assist in the prevention of this disease – be vigilant of the food-stuff you transport from North to South and vice versa.
Due to the intense heat, October is known as the ‘suicide’ month – there are many challenges associated with driving in thick sand during this month.
