When to Go

  • Gaborone is a year-round destination, although the rainy season (usually January to March) is generally the least appealing time to be in the city.
  • The most pleasant weather is, like the rest of Botswana, usually from May to September, although nights can be chilly.
  • The week-long Maitisong Festival in late March or early April is a great time to be in Gabs, with the best in Batswana live performances enlivening the city.
