Climate and average weather in Botswana
Botswana's climate can best be described as semi-arid. The best time to go to Botswana is during the winter months from April till August as the days are generally pleasant and the wildlife never wanders far from their water sources. Enjoy wildlife viewing or explore the Okavango, as prolonged rains may render sandy roads uncrossable, and animals disperse when water is abundant. Summer (December to April) isn't the best time to visit .
