Wildlife viewing is best during the drier winter months of May to September. Foliage is abundant within the park, but as conditions become drier, it recedes and animals cluster on the banks of available water sources. The hide located at the waterhole is particularly busy with animal activity at this time. Elephants reliably come to drink and bathe in the heat of the day, between 11am and 3pm.
