Best time to Visit Botswana
High Season

Your itinerary plan depends on multiple factors including your holidays, activities and interests. Among all the related factors, major concern is weather and budget for the visitors. Different weather conditions hold different charms and attractions for the tourists. Winter lasts from May to October which is the most favorable time for Botswana Safari. Wildlife is gathered around water resources and game viewing is at its peak during this season. A multitude of tourists can be seen making their gateway to Botswana specifically in July during school holidays which causes overbooked flights, camping space and luxury accommodations.

Low Season

Just opposite to the seasons in Europe, weather gets warm and dry by the end of October. In January, wet season cools down the environment considerably with the rainy showers. Due to which, emerald green vegetation refreshes the tourists. Though wild life is dispersed and game viewing restricts to Chobe's Savute region and the Kalahari to enchant the tourists. Also, traveler may indulge in bird watching in this season. Moreover, your whole itinerary including your ticket and accommodation cost you much lesser in low season than if you go in high season. People may opt to book cheap flights to Botswana during Christmas and New Year holidays which is the most appropriate time to avoid inflated prices and experience the sensational game view.

Getting Around in Botswana

The rail network, both on the domestic and international scales, has been completely suspended until further complete renovation. The main reliance is on bus companies centralized in Gaborone, as well as a series of mini buses and combies which serve as the general public transport option for commuting. The expressways and highways are well structured to serve for all kinds of traffic by road. Some of the destinations are located well displaced at a range of more than a thousand kilometres across the country, like Gaborone and Kasane, and in such cases domestic flights can also be considered an option.

Hotels and Accommodation in Botswana

While on safari through the Okavongo Delta, you’ll come across safari lodges, private villas and camped tents among the options for staying amongst the entire surrounding wilderness. The towns located towards the remote regions specialize mostly in rooms with common standard facilities. If one recommends grandeur and luxury it definitely has to be Gaborone, with luxury hotels facilitating suits, and separate guest houses as well. In some cases, tourists can also go for being selective, opting for continental restaurants, or private pools, or even a hammock by the veranda attached to their lodge. Additionally, mobile safari camps, walking safaris and waterside cottages are most popular among the tourists.
