July to October of the Dry season are the best wildlife viewing months. At this time, water is scarce so the wildlife tends to gather at the remaining water sources. Keep in mind that October is very hot and not the ideal time for being in the bush.

Best Time July to October (Dry bush, animals are easy to find)
High Season July to October (Never busy, but high season rates apply)
Low Season mid-November to May (Low season rates apply)
Best Weather April to August (It is cooler and it hardly ever rains)
Worst Weather November to March (Hot and wet weather)

May to October Dry Season

  • Wildlife viewing is at its best
  • Sunshine with very little rainfall
  • It never gets very busy in the park
  • Malaria risk is minimal
  • High season rates apply from mid-June to mid-November
  • Conditions are very dry and the sky is hazy from the dust
  • October is unbearably hot
  • Mornings are cold from May to August

November to April Wet Season

  • Scenery is green and fresh
  • It’s very quiet, the reserve has few visitors, and rates are lower
  • It’s the best time for bird watching
  • Baby animals are an attraction
  • Wildlife viewing is better in the Dry season
  • It is very hot and humid
  • Malaria is a bigger concern
  • Roads become waterlogged and a 4x4 might be necessary
