  1. Peak Season

    January to February; June to October

    If you’re after guaranteed animal sightings by the hundreds and thousands, January is your best bet as this is when most animals congregate near watering holes, as the days are dry and warm. The downside? Accommodation prices will be significantly higher, and there will be many more visitors across the country. As long as you’re prepared for this on arrival, you should have no problems if you plan in advance. If your bucket list includes the Great Migration, you’ll want to join travellers during the second tourist peak from the end of June to the start of July. 

  2. Low Season

    March to May

    From March onwards, is when it pours with rain across the country, and at the same time, accommodation prices plummet. Much of the country will become flooded and many roads will be closed. This means wildlife viewings will become more difficult, and animals may be few and far between. The grassy plains will turn a rich share of green thanks to the downpour which means wildlife will be hard to see through most national parks. By the end of May, the rain should be less intense, but of course, this will change every year as Mother Nature is always unpredictable.
