In general the climate in southern Africa is as near perfect as you can get with dry season temperatures similar to those of the Mediterranean, but without the humidity (in most areas). Daytime temperatures average 25-30 degrees celsius for much of the year. In the summer months temperatures can climb to 35 degrees Celsius in the middle of the day. During the winter period May to August night-time temperatures in some areas of Botswana, Namibia and Zimbabwe (Kalahari System) can drop to freezing or below – don’t let this dissuade you from a safari as by mid morning temperatures are warm enough for shorts and a short sleeved shirt. In these cold region warm ponchos are provided on early morning and late evening activities. Rains occur each year during the period November through March with the dry season stretching from April through October.
