August weather and when to go
As the winter season progresses in Botswana, clear skies are the order of the day.
Temperatures are likely to be below 10°C in the mornings and evenings, even dropping down to freezing overnight. Therefore it is possible that there will be frost on the ground when you wake for your early morning drives. Don’t worry though, you will be provided with warm cosy blankets for your drives. This frost will create a pretty landscape for your photography and as the sun rises you’ll start to thaw out. Of course, the excitement and anticipation of seeing a pride of lions or heard of elephants often warms you up too.
This month is almost bone dry and due to the lack of clouds, evenings and nights are significantly colder than previous months.
