Not for us anyway. We were at Xigera in mid January. Only rained twice in4 days and then only for a very short period..20 mins maybe. We did 2 drives a day..or mekoro or walks. Never needed a sweater or bug spray.

I was there in Jan. 2003 for 8 nights. Only rained once -- a couple of hours in late afternoon through early evening. It was welcome as it was hot in the middle of the days -- reaching 105 at one of the camps. Nights and game drives were pleasant though, only mid day was a real issue in which I made like a hippo and stayed in the pool.
