Visiting

Dry Season (July - Oct)

In the dry season animals congregate around water holes making the game viewing easier. The waterholes are pump assisted, creating a noisy environment. Several of the waterholes have raised hides for spectacular game viewing.

Wet Season

The wet season is the obvious choice for bird watching. Temperatures on average range from 65-83°F (18-28°C)
