Best Time to Visit Kapama Private Game Reserve

Choose the dry season, May to September, to visit Kapama as winter is the best time to see animals. Vegetation is sparser and animals gather around rivers and waterholes in numbers, attracting predators too. While September is a lovely month to visit, don’t rule out the summer rainy months, October to April, generate beautiful, lush foliage and many animals are breeding while birding takes off too. February is the wettest month of the year in the South African bushveld.
