Botswana in June

june weather and when to go

As winter continues temperatures decline further, humidity can vary greatly across the country and also throughout the month so it is difficult to predict the weather.  

It is generally sunny and warm with cooler mornings and evenings so remember to pack plenty of layers. Early afternoon temperatures will still stand at around 25°C so will be relatively warm by European standards, but not to the scorching levels of the latter months.

Game viewing is great during June as landscapes begin to dry out, but some wildlife can still be fairly dispersed.

Numbers of tourists increase as we come into the peak season and subsequently, prices will continue to rise (but not yet quite as high as July-September). Elephants start to congregate in the Chobe and Savuti region which can be a wonderful sight.

June sees the start of the best season for guided walking safaris in private concessions, especially the Linyanti region. This gives you the chance to stay in mobile tented camps and get right into the action. These are best avoided at the hottest times of year and also the rainiest. If you enjoy walking safaris, combining your Botswana safari with a trip to the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, home of the walking safari, is an excellent option.

A fun event for those interested in cars is the Toyota 1000 Desert Race which entails extreme off-road driving across Botswana. The routes and dates change each year so a bit of research into the event beforehand would be needed.
