Seasons
Botswana's climate is semi-arid. Though it is hot and dry for much of the year, there is a rainy season, which runs through the summer months. Rainfall tends to be erratic, unpredictable and highly regional. Often a heavy downpour may occur in one area while 10 or 15 kilometers away there is no rain at all. Showers are often followed by strong sunshine so that a good deal of the rainfall does not penetrate the ground but is lost to evaporation and transpiration.

Summer (September to April)
October, November and February are the hottest months! Temperatures in summer can vary from 12 C to 38 C at midday. The rainy season falls in summer, between November and March. In summer during the morning period humidity ranges from 60 to 80% and drops to between 30 and 40% in the afternoon.

Winter (May to August)
This is a period of very little rain, and delightful temperatures by day and refreshingly cool at night. Great time for those who prefer to avoid intense heat or insects. Temperatures during winter months vary from 4 C to 24 C at midday. In winter humidity is can vary between 40 and 70% during the morning and fall to between 20 and 30% in the afternoon.

For tourists, the best visiting months are from April through to October - in terms of both weather and game viewing. It is during this period that the wildlife of the great spaces gather around what water there is - the natural waterholes and the borehole-fed dams - and are at their most visible. However, as the wildlife in this area is not seasonal, wonderful game viewing experiences are possible throughout the year.
