November weather and when to go
November sees the beginning of the summer season in Botswana with minimum temperatures rising but maximum temperatures in the heat of the day dipping slightly.
Yet unlike most summers, this is also the time when the rains begin. November is not quite peak rainy season though, with this coming later in the season around January/February.
The mercury is likely to get up to the late 30s sometimes even peaking at 40°C+ which can be too much for some people, so it is important to think about this if you are planning on travelling around this time of year.
Days are somewhat cooled down by the incoming rains, but these are unlikely to last long, more frequently coming in short heavy showers throughout the day.
