In Amakhala, the wildlife viewing is good all year. Since the climate is semi-arid, animals are always attracted to water sources – but marginally more so during the driest months of June through September. Nights become very cold at this time, making it essential to bring warm clothing for game drives in open vehicles.

Best Time January to December (All year)
High Season October to March (The reserve can get crowded)
Low Season April to September (Mornings and evenings are cold)
Best Weather October to April (Warmer nights and mornings)
Worst Weather June to August (Cold nights and mornings)

May to September Winter

  • The reserve won’t be very busy
