Best time to Visit
Good time to visit
Average time to visit
All year round destination, although the best time to visit the Central Highlands is from May to September as the temperature is tolerably cool, especially at night. The optimum game viewing times are between June and November. The land will have dried out meaning animals must again come to waterholes to drink. Summer (November to April) also known as the rainy season is best time to travel for bird watching as migratory birds (both intra-African and Palaearctic) flock into the park's many habitats after the summer rains.
