Best time to go to

The best months to visit Palmwag are between May and September due to limited rainfall and comfortable temperatures. The scarce rains make for easy wildlife watching as waterholes are few and attract many animals. During this time, the weather is best due to most days being sunny without extreme hot or cold temperatures. October to December is also agreeable, owing to low prices and high availability, but temperatures will be far hotter. In this season, you’ll see more wildflowers due to occasional bursts of rain.
