No rain means the wildlife will migrate towards remaining water sources. Waterholes, dams and rivers become reliable sources for wildlife sightings, especially in the mornings when wildlife come to drink.
Due to the rain, the grass is much higher and the bush green and lush. Spotting wildlife can be more difficult with the dense vegetation, but to see the bush so lush is a beautiful experience in itself.
If a guided or private safari isn’t in your budget, or your cup of tea, SAN Parks run shorter morning and afternoon game drives from each camp. These don’t offer the same personalised experienced but are still very worthwhile.
