Diving in Botswana

Explore diving in Botswana

Deep in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, June-July is Nile crocodile diving season. The river water, which drops to 55-62°F (13-17°C) during the winter season, provides advantages to divers looking to experience these magnificent crocodiles underwater. The cold water causes the crocodiles to spend many hours sunning themselves on the river bank. This makes finding them fairly easy.

Second, the low temperatures create excellent underwater visibility of approximately 20 feet (6 meters). Finally, the chilly water causes the crocodiles to become quite lethargic. All three of these outcomes create the perfect scenario for cageless scuba diving with crocodiles.

There are approximately 3,000 Nile crocodiles in the Okavango Delta for true adrenaline junkies to encounter them in their natural habitat.
