Botswana holidays

When to visit?

There are two best instances for vacationing in Botswana; game tourism season and public holidays.


Game tourism season

The best Botswana holidays for game tourism are as follows:

  • The dry winter, between May and October.
  • This period offers you the best game viewing as wildlife gathers around water sources.

  • The rainy summer, between November and April.
