Weather & Seasons
Summer (Roughly Mid September to Mid December)
Summers here are hot. Light clothing, swimwear, hats and sunscreen are essential. Our rooms are not air-conditioned, but without glass windows, and with the fans on you'll be just fine. Plus, you'll probably spend most your time outside in the beautiful surroundings and the pool, rather than sitting in your room.
Winter (From Around May, to Mid September)
Temperatures in winter only drop to about 12°C but mornings on the drives can be cool so bring a jacket and some long pants. These are also helpful all year to keep the mosquitoes at bay on the drives.
Rainy Season (Generally from January to April)
During the rainy season, or the "Emerald Season" as we like to call it, there are intermittent showers that can last a while, or can be over as quickly as they start.
We would recommend packing a light rain jacket and anything else that might help in keeping you dry. Although we do have umbrellas and rain poncho’s they are one-size fits all and not too glamorous.
Some people may tell you that the sightings aren't as good at this time of the year, with the bush being a lot more dense and green, but the flip side of this is that many animals seek higher ground to stay dry, and often end up quite close to the roads in the park.
For all you ornithologists out there, you couldn't come at a better time. The bird-life is spectacular!
