The best time to visit Nyerere National Park is during the dry season between July and October or December and March. It’s best to visit during the dry season when the wildlife tends to cluster around the river and waterholes, including our camp waterhole, making viewing and photography easier.
Christmas and the New Year is our peak period.
However, we think the very best months to visit are January, February and March if you can take the heat. Although it can be hot and humid during this time, the reserve is usually lush and green after the short rains at the end of the previous year.
Better yet, many of the animals have babies with them at this time of year which is always beautiful to see.
This is such an excellent season for game viewing that it’s worth braving the hot weather, especially for guests in our luxury tented accommodation who can cool down in the pool anytime. Our swimming pool looks out over the waterhole so you can float around with a cocktail while the wildlife wallows in the waterhole.
We are open all year round. However, it can be impossible to access the park during the peak rainy season in April and May so we recommend you avoid planning your visit then if possible.
