Climate Conditions

Botswana's climate is semi-arid. Though it is hot and dry for much of the year, there is a rainy season, which runs through the summer months. Rainfall tends to be erratic, unpredictable and highly regional.
As a desert region, there are large temperature fluctuations between day and night, and between summer and winter. Early mornings and evenings may be cold and frosty in winter (May-Sep).
On all our tours, it's best to bring warm clothing - raincoat, warm hat, socks etc. - as across Africa wet/dry and hot/cool climatic periods change invariably.
