The best time to visit Botswana differs according to the region. In general the dry months from June to October are considered to be the best, as animals tend to rendezvous at the few waterholes and so are particularly easy to observe. During this time the temperatures increase continuously. It is around 25-35°C during the daytime from June to September.
From October onward it can become very hot, with temperatures up to 40°C. The nights are cold, and the thermometer can fall below 10°C, especially in the deserts. April and May are also a great time for Botswana safaris, however, you should expect scattered rain showers.
From December to April the desert comes to life! Fresh grass and small flowers suddenly sprout. Thousands of jumping and spitboks as well as wildebeest are lured by new food sources, with hungry lions, cheetahs and jackals close on their heels.
