SeasonSeason

Botswana has a dry semi-arid climate with most of the rain falling in summer between December and April. Summer squalls are usually brief and accompanied by thunderstorms. The best time to visit Chobe Botswana is between April and September during the dry season when flood plains and water channels are flooded by water from the Angolan highlands, and attract an enormous number of elephant and other wildlife.
