Best Time To Go​

Discover optimal safari timing with our seasonal guide for prime wildlife sightings and unforgettable experiences

While a fantastic safari is all but assured all year round, the weather does have a role to play, meaning that certain times are better than others. The best time falls between June and October and January/February when the dry conditions make animal spotting that much easier.

Although the timing is unpredictable, the wildebeest migration is evident from August, building to its peak in late September and October. The above period coincides with the Tourism High Season, meaning accommodations and parks are generally very busy.

The month of November and from March to May are the Wet Season, which means that some roads are inaccessible and certain camps close temporarily. On a positive note, special offers may be available at some camps as there are fewer tourists, and bird-watching is at its best.
