Best time to go to Kapama Private Game Reserve

The summer months of October to April run hot and humid in the Kapama Game Reserve. Known as the wet season, afternoon storms are a normal occurrence with temperatures that can ascend to over 40°C. The average daytime temperature usually reaches about 30°C. The mild winter months, from May to September, are part of the dry season. There is virtually no rainfall in the winter, so expect animals to come out of the dry bush and congregate around waterholes and rivers, making it the ideal time for game viewing.
