What is the best time of year to go?

  • May to September – excellent time for wildlife viewing with thinner vegetation making it easier to spot wildlife within the reserves and around the water holes. There is little rain, plenty of sunshine and low humidity
  • Malaria is low risk. But the lack of rain does mean it can be dusty. Early mornings/late evenings can be chilly.
