December weather and when to go
December has been dubbed the “emerald season” thanks to its lush green landscapes that have flourished during the November rains. The dense vegetation does make wildlife more difficult to see but the stunning backdrops more than make up for it. There will be plenty of migratory birds fluttering through the verdant bush and, thanks to the shelter and nutrition the vegetation provides, ungulates give birth at this time to give their young the best chance of survival.
Look out for baby antelopes and zebra taking their first steps into the bush.
