I would like to plan a trip to Botswana for a safari and wonder what time of the year (Spring, Summer, Winter or Fall) is best as far a weather goes and seeing the most animals?
Botswana is great for game viewing all year, but the best wildlife spotting comes when the grass is short.... so winter, May-September... which is also dry season, so the animals gather around the remaining waterholes.
And I have a few safety tips for anyone contemplating a safari.

Botswana is good all year round but Winter (may - July) is nice if you can handle a very mild chill. (cold at night but days are usually quite pleasant and mild.)
Spring is also nice (aug - oct). The summer (November - march) is beautiful - espically after the rains in January. However the heat can be quite brutal during that time of the year so come prepared.
