The wet season in Botswana typically falls in the summer months between November and March, where hot and humid conditions are usually experienced.
Many grazing animals give birth at this time, as the landscape is lush and there is plenty of food available.
The wet season is coming to an end in about a months time where the conditions will start to become dry and cooler as we head towards the winter months.
The dry season lasts from about April to October. Game viewing is at its best during this time as the animals are attracted to permanent water sources. The bush also becomes more sparse allowing for great viewing opportunities.
The Winter months are ideal for self-drive safaris especially to those areas that are inaccessible at certain times of the year due to the heavy rains and sometimes flooding.
Self-drive safaris: the northern parks of Botswana can be accessed year round
in a 4x4 vehicle, although there will be some places that are inaccessible at
times of the year due to heavy rains and flooding.
