Botswana – Best time to go

Best time to visit Botswana

Botswana can experience highs of 44˚C, with humidity reaching 60–80% during summer months while the evenings can be surprisingly cool. The dry season from April to October is the best time to visit as the water levels in the Okavango Delta are actually at their highest and game viewing is at its best.
