Season / Weather / Climate

The dry season in Botswana runs from April to October, the rainy season from November to March. In general, game viewing in Botswana is best between May and November. In April / early May, the grasses are still long and game viewing is difficult. From the end of May, conditions for game viewing may be considered excellent, The landscape may look rough and very dry during this time, but watching wild game is easiest because grasses and leaves are withered or eaten, and animals rely on limited and few sources of water. Migratory birds usually arrive towards the end of September. November usually brings the beginning of the rainy season, and while watching the game can still be superb, certain animals, especially herds of elephants and buffalos, begin to disperse as soon as enough rain has fallen, and it can be expected that the waterholes will become more , The hardest season to visit Botswana is from December to March, unless you are primarily interested in birds and you enjoy watching the rainy season. The exception is the Kalahari ecosystem, where game viewing during the rainy season (best from December to March) is far better when the game moves to the open plains and concentrates around the pans. During the dry season, and especially from July to October, the Kalahari is very hard and the game is extremely scattered.
