The wet season (summer) takes place from November to April and during this time, it can become very hot, humid and sticky; although a small window of opportunity will take place in April as the weather cools and the air dries out. Rain showers are often unpredictable but short so it’s unlikely that the weather will affect your travel plans. Although game is harder to view in summer, November to April is the perfect time for birding.
It’s also important to bear in mind that some camps will close during the wet season so be sure to contact our team about the best time to book your safari holiday in Botswana.
What to pack: Wet season in Botswana can get very wet so mosquito repellent is essential. Bring plenty of tops and t-shirts with ventilation / moisture-wicking properties as the back end of the season (October and November) can get uncomfortably hot.
