DRY SEASON

From May you’ll experience clear sunny days but temperatures can still be cooler in the evening. Game viewing is good.

Moving into August the days are warmer and the bush has dried out, meaning the game viewing is now excellent and becomes outstanding right through to November!

First rainfall is normally expected in November, still hot and now humid with continued great game viewing.

green SEASON

December see the first thunderstorms with short showers followed by sunny periods and good game viewing.

Regular rain fall continues in January making the bush now green and the grass long. Animals are more dispersed and harder to locate.

Many camps close in January through to March as the bush is now dense.

SHOULDER SEASON

It rains less often in April and by May clear blue skies herald the beginning of the dry season, days are sunny and the bush is starting to dry out, call us for early season bargains.
