Before the rainy season begins in Kavati in November make the most of the dried up landscapes and seasonal lakes and rivers. Most of the game will gather near to the Katuma River meaning you have the chance to see a selection of wildlife in a small location. This national park also offers spectacular elephant viewing in the open plains where large groups gather creating a fascinating atmosphere.
October is the best time to visit Arusha National Park and if you want to, climb Mount Meru. Although wildlife viewing is not as highly regarded here as it is in other parks, you may still have the chance to see leopards and hyenas at dusk and dawn!
