and a variety of small animals and birds.

Climate
It is very important to know that Botswana is the semi-desert country and has four seasons; spring, summer, autumn and winter. Spring (August, September, and October), summer (November, December, January,) and
Autumn (February, March, April) are hot seasons and cold season is Winter (May, June, July).
