Best Times To Travel Botswana

A holiday to Botswana allows you to truly enjoy nature at its finest with a huge array of wildlife to see set amongst beautiful landscapes. So when is the best time to travel to Botswana?

This will depend greatly on what you are looking for when choosing a holiday in Botswana. The rainy season is between December and March with temperatures averaging in the low 20's but still some bright and sunny days whilst April to November sees large numbers of animals migrating making this a great time to go if you wish to view wildlife.

In March and April thousands of animals migrate towards the Savuti area of Chobe National Park and large numbers of game can be seen in the grazing areas. May to August sees warmer temperatures in the day. This is generally the peak season for safari areas as it is easier to catch sight of game using the water holes.

September to October provides much warmer temperatures (sometimes up to 40 degrees) and this much drier period sees wildlife much more concentrated and there is a good chance of seeing larger game.

Whatever you choose for your holiday in Botswana our holiday experts have a great deal of tips and knowledge that ensure you travel to Botswana at the best time of year for you, simply fill in the form on the right.
