Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

In Ruaha, the best time to visit is the long dry season, June to October, where wildlife is more concentrated around water sources and the grass is grazed and trampled down. November brings the short rains, with heavy rainfall and dramatic thunderstorms every few days, often in the evenings. From December until May there is high humidity and intermittent rainfall, and the long rains come at the end of March until the end of May, when many camps are closed as airstrips and roads are impassable.
