Temperatures in June

We will be visiting Chobe and the Okavango Delta in the second week of June. How cold does it get at night and what kind of jacket (hat/gloves??) do you need? During the day is it warm enough to use the pools (Camp Okavango and Chobe Game Lodge) if they are even open?

that's the coldest time of year. i have been there at that exact time on one of my safaris.

-morning will be about 35-45F.

-mid-day will be about 55-65F.

-afternoon could be 65-80F.

you are visiting desert and delta camps. they should have warm gear for you to wear on the morning game drive but i would bring a stocking cap and gloves. sorry if you are a lady but no hair dryer at camp okavango!

the pool will be open for the brave. bring a suit and if it hits 80 give it a try. camp okavango has no land activities so you may have a long boat ride if you are going by boat transer from the camp moremi air strip. it could be 3-4 hours. this WILL be cold because you will be going fast in a boat when it is only about 60 outside. you better find out which method you are using to get to camp okavango from your agent.

The days will be comfortably warm, but the nights will be cold and can even be very cold. Early mornings are usually cold. A good jacket for the nights are advisable.

For travel during southern Africa's winter many travelers like to wear zip off pants / shorts...when you head out in the early morning it can be quite chilly (especially in the back of an open vehicle) but by 8 AM or 9 AM you can unzip your pantlegs and be perfectly comfortable. For phorographers fingerless gloves work really well. A warm hat, like Craig said, is a great idea...
