Discover Botswana in April
April is a shoulder season between summer and winter, seeing a period of transition between the hot yet rainy days of summer and the more pleasant days of the winter season. April is generally dry characterised by cooler days and warmer evenings. This is a happy medium between the two main seasons and therefore starts to see an increase in travellers visiting Botswana.
Temperatures are usually steady around 30°C with few clouds, meaning there can be little respite from the heat. Climate between day and night can vary significantly so be prepared with a range of layered clothing, particularly for early morning drives and late night stories around the campfire.
There is a significant drop in rainfall from March to April and clear skies are predominant.
