When to Go

 

July to October is dry season when wildlife is easier to see, and the climate

is cool at this season but gets progressively warmer.

 

June and November – These are “shoulder” seasons when the rains may

just be ending or starting and the bush may be a little greener.

 

Between December and mid-March, it is more likely to drizzle (but not all

day and definitely not every day). The climate can be very hot and quite

humid at this time.

 

From Mid-March to end of May – Rain Season, this time of year

experiences heavy rains at times; the bush is lively with flowering trees, birds

in breeding plumage and young life. You may have to look harder to find the

animals but the landscapes, birds, clarity of the air and loveliness of the place

is unparalleled.
