Climate & Geography

Botswana has a hot and arid climate. Most part of the year is hot and dry with the rains occurring in the summer seasons. The humidity in the winters is very less, making Botswana a wonderful place to visit during this time. The summer temperatures are however high with the thermometer touching 44 degrees C on a few occasions.

The Kalahari Desert covers almost 70% of Botswana. On its south and southeast is South Africa, to its northeast is Zimbabwe, to its west and north is Namibia and to its north is Kazungula. Botswana lies between latitudes 17 degrees and 27 degrees S and longitudes 20 degrees and 30 degrees E.

Territory & Capital : Most of Botswana is dominated by the Kalahari Desert. The remaining territory is dominated by the Okavango Delta, Makgadikgadi Pan and the Limpopo River Basin. Gaborone is the capital of Botswana.

Suitable Visiting Seasons : The period between April and October is the time when the animals come out in the open and gather around the waterholes. This is the best time to visit Botswana as the tourist will then get an uninterrupted view of the wildlife of Botswana.

Transportation

The highways and airports serve as the primary modes of transportation. The railways are not very developed but play an important role in connecting Botswana to its neighbors.
