The best wildlife viewing in Hluhluwe-iMfolozi is in the drier winter months from May to September when the vegetation thins out and animals congregate around water sources. The hides located at the waterholes are particularly busy with animal activity at this time. The colder winter months are also considered the low season and the park tends to be less busy with the exception of school holidays.

Best Time May to September (Dry season)
High Season October to March (The park can get busy especially during school holidays)
Low Season April to September (Excellent time for wildlife viewing)
Best Weather April-May and September-October (Mild weather and little rain)
Worst Weather June to August (Chilly mornings and nights) and December to February (Hot and humid)

May to September Dry Season – Winter

  • Best time for wildlife viewing since the vegetation shrinks and animals cluster around water sources
  • The park is very quiet except during school holidays
  • Little rain and blue skies
  • Early morning game drives in open vehicles are chilly
  • The sky is hazy with a lot of dust in the air

October to April Wet Season – Summer
