When is the best time for bird-watching?
Though birders may want to visit when the migratory birds are in the area and photographers, around the rains when the landscape tends to be more photogenic.
We invite you to explore the migration Callender for birds in Ruaha
February to April. For birders, the best time to visit Ruaha is during the long rains between February and April, when the migrant birds arrive.
The wet season is a time when the park is at its lushest, with wildflowers peppering the rich, verdant grasslands.
This is also an excellent time for landscape photographers to visit.
When is the best time for wildlife viewing?
The best time to see predators and large mammals is during the dry season (mid-May to December – January ).
May to October. The long, dry season between June and October is the best time to see large mammals and big cats.
As the rivers dry up, animals congregate around the remaining water sources, making them much easier to find.
June is also breeding season for the greater kudu, so you’ll see lots of males with their elegant, twisted horns.
November to January. This is the hottest time of year, but there’s good wildlife viewing as the animals are still active.
It’s also the beginning of the rainy season. Visitors can expect hot, humid days and afternoon showers.
