discover botswana in march
Summer steadily comes to an end in March with temperatures cooling down and rains dropping off. Some moisture and heat still remain though and this is the peak time for mosquitoes in Botswana.
We recommend wearing lightweight long-length clothing with closed ankles and wrists if possible. Mosquitoes are more prevalent around damp areas, and lakes and rivers in particular, so you may want to plan you safari around this. If you are looking to travel with children it is worth taking into consideration the numbers of mosquitoes and the risk of malaria and perhaps look at travelling at a different time of year if possible.
Rates in March will still be lower than from May onwards so if you are looking to travel at a quieter and cheaper time, March is a suitable time to go.
