Botswana : Climate information

Botswana is an all year round wildlife destination. The summer rain fall is low so game viewing is good at all times of the year. There are very good low season rates from December to March and shoulder season rates in April to June and November. The best game viewing is in the winter when it is at its driest from July to November but it can be extremely cold (even with frost) in June to August and warm clothes are needed for mornings and evenings.

The desert is different though and is best in the summer (low) season when game is drawn to the water and the southern migration passes through. Birding and flora is also best at this time of year.

These weather charts are to be used as a guide only. Weather patterns around the world have become unpredictable in the past few years so we cannot guarantee the weather following its usual seasonal patterns.
