Weather

If you chose to travel during September, October or November these are the hottest months when humidity is high and temperatures can reach 40 degrees. During April and May there is some humidity and June, July and August are the coolest months, where you will experience cool nights and warm daytime temperatures. During the hotter months our guides will alter the itinerates to suit the weather conditions, for example long walks will be done early in the morning to beat the heat. We will also aim to camp near watering holes so you have the opportunity to cool off in the afternoon. Due to the fact that we travel in remote areas in tropical conditions and on rough terrain, tours can be affected by poor road conditions and/or extreme weather, which might result in a change of itinerary, or in extreme cases cause the tour to be cancelled. If your tour is cancelled before departure you'll be provided with a refund or transfer your trip to another date.
