April-May tends to be the perfect time to visit Botswana with regards to the weather. June-September has very cold nights and very hot days and is also generally a great time to visit.
The rainy season arrives between December and March.
For big game safaris from September through October are when the game is most condensed due to the hot, dry weather.
