When to go
Botswana's climatic is typical of southern Africa, although its rainfall is less than countries further east. The rains in Botswana come mostly between December and March. As with Namibia, April and May in Botswana are generally lovely, with the sky clear and the landscape green. From June to August, it's very much 'peak season' for most safari areas: the land is dry in most areas so the animals congregate around the few available water sources. This continues into September and October, when temperatures climb again, drying the landscapes and concentrating the game even more. This is the best time for big game safaris – although October can feel very hot. November is difficult to predict, as it can sometimes be a continuation of October's heat, whilst sometimes it's cooled by the first rains.
Places in and around the Okavango tend to have less extreme, more moderate temperatures than the drier areas of the Kalahari.
