When is the best time to visit Botswana?
Game viewing is excellent year round in Botswana, but many people regard May to September the best time to visit. These are the winter months (and the dry season), and temperatures are moderate, there is almost no rain, and animals are concentrated around water sources.
Wildlife tends to disperse during the rainy January to April period, but several destinations offer excellent game viewing during this time, as they are in the path of migrating animals. These include Chobe’s Savute region and Botswana’s Kalahari parks – Nxai Pan, Makgadikgadi Pans and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. December is a particularly good month as many antelope drop their young during this time, which means a great chance of exceptional predator sightings.
