SEASONS - June to November; hot days and cool nights with high concentration of both migrant animals and huge herds of buffalo and elephant, this is also the best time for walking safaris. Dec-March, the park is green and full of life; while the migrant animals move to their green season grazing to the east, this is a wonderful time to see elephants and birdlife is at its most spectacular.
