july weather and when to go
July is a peak month to travel to Botswana, again increasing numbers and prices, and making availability more limited. It is an ideal time for game viewing though, so if you need to travel in the northern hemisphere summer holidays this is a good time to go.
This month boasts the statistic that it receives less than 10% of the annual rainfall in Botswana. Therefore, for those seeking out dry climes rather than particularly warm ones this can be perfect. Due to the minimal rainfall, watering holes dry up further condensing game and birdlife to smaller areas. This means sightings are more likely but also that other game drive vehicles will probably be hovering around similar locations. However, our guides will aim to get you in the right places at the right time so you have optimal game viewing.
Make sure you book well in advance to avoid missing out on the lodges and camps you want as these are likely to be snapped up early for July.
