Most people have a misguided view of the Green Season (December to end March) or “Rainy Season”. A lesser-known fact is that the "5 -Rivers" area has just about half the amount of rainfall during the same period as the Greater Kruger National Park. The rainfall in the "5 -Rivers" area is typically in the form of quick thunderstorms, which usually last about an hour or so.
The other misconception is that game or wildlife viewing is at its lowest… and difficult to see – we have resolved this dilemma by offering all game drives with guides and trackers at many of the camps, or by ensuring the camps are located in prime viewing areas. The summer months offer the best value time to visit these regions as the vegetation is a sea of green, wild flowers everywhere and all mammals and birds have young. The bush is alive … Africa at its most productive best.
Not only is game viewing great, but the green season is the time the migrant birds are breeding in these areas and the kalahari and Nxai Pan areas are at their best with long grasses and large antelope herds.
