WHICH SEASON IS THE BEST TO VISIT BOTSWANA?

MAY-OCTOBER

This season is called the dry season where less vegetation is found around & animal concentration around water holes and rivers is high which makes wildlife very easy to spot. The skies are clear with less rain or no rain at all, the mosquitoes are few thefore the risk of getting malaria is less. Most tourists visit during the dry season; the parks remain with no crowd. It is cold both at night and in the morning, the fore you are advised to get warm winter clothing during this season especially June, July & August for the cold morning game drives.

NOVEMBER - APRIL

The bush is ever green and the rates are low, this season is called the green season or low season because the number of tourists coming in is less. Even though wildlife spotting is easier during dry season, you will still see a lot during the green season including newly born animals and birds. Except for January and February, rains are mostly short afternoon showers and seldom which might have a negative impact on your trip. During January and February, the rains may be continuous for some days. October and November are very hot
