When to Go
Peak Season: December to April
The dry season brings little rainfall and comfortable temperatures—some of the coolest in Africa—and evenings can be downright cold. Bring a substantial jacket.
Off Season: June to September
The humid rainy season is unpleasant, and some national parks may be closed during this time.
Shoulder Season: October to November
With rain lightening up, temperatures bearable, and crowds thin, these months are worth considering for a vacation.
