FAQs

What is the best time to travel?
The best time to visit Botswana depends on what experience you are looking for and your tolerance of
the varying weather conditions.
• Autumn- March, April and May- are marked by moderate temperatures,15-30°C which is a
lovely time to visit Botswana with the lands lush and green after summer rains.
• Winter months – June, July and August- are marked by cloudless days and mild temperatures
(average 5-27°C). In the Okavango Delta, the floodwaters from Angola start to fill the countless
lagoons and streams and the landscapes outside the Delta begin their drying process, gradually
fading from lush green to dry Khaki.
• Spring months- late August through September- are a wonderful time to visit Botswana. The
timing between the cold and winter and the intense heat before the rains ensures
temperatures of 15-34°C. It heats up toward the end of September and into October where
highs can reach above 43°C. Game viewing is excellent due to the lack of thick vegetation and
the water holes are drying up.
• Summertime – November, early December through to March- enjoy temperatures averaging 16-35°C. These months include the rainy season(generally Jan/Feb), when you may encounter brief but heavy rain and thunderstorms. This period can offer good game viewing and you may be
lucky to witness the miracle that the rains bring, transforming the dry land to a vibrant abundance of lush greenery.
