The Weather and Destination

The best time to visit Botswana is during the dry season between May and October, when you can expect warm, sunny days (22°C to 35°C) and chilly nights. This is also when the water levels in the Okavango Delta are at their highest, creating the waterways and channels Botswana is famed for.

Botswana is a sustainable safari destination. “There are few countries in Africa that can compete with Botswana for safari exclusivity and luxury, as well as abundant wildlife and diverse landscapes. With a population of roughly 2 million, the country is slightly larger than France and slightly smaller than Texas, yet 40% of its land is dedicated to parks and wildlife. Botswana’s government has prescribed a high income, low volume, low impact, ecotourism policy meaning fewer tourists and better protected natural wildernesses. In addition, they have dedicated their army to anti-poaching—one of the reasons the country is a haven for wildlife. In wilderness areas like the depths of the Okavango Delta and it’s surrounds, not only are the safari camps and lodges more ecologically minded and more symbiotic with their environment, but their owner’s efforts and the government’s policies are helping to preserve the country.” – Forbes
