Although Botswana is a year-round destination, keep the following tips in mind:
Although Botswana is a year-round destination, it is important to keep in mind that the country has a dry season and a wet season. The dry season, from May to October, is the ideal time for a safari as this is when the game viewing is best. There is less vegetation and animals tend to congregate around waterholes and rivers, making it much easier to spot them. The skies are clear and there is very little rain.
November to April is Botswana’s wet season – otherwise known as their green season – when the area is full of lush vegetation and greenery. Although the dry season is the best time for game viewing, the wet season also promises plenty of wildlife sightings, especially new-born animals and migratory birds. The wet season brings short afternoon showers, but in January and February continuous rain can occur.
