Seasons
 

Autumn (March- April)
Weather: Last of the rains fall during March. Temperatures start to drop toward the end of April. Temp 20 – 30 degree.
Area: Normally no flood water so molapos dry. Local rains over Dec – Feb create a very green environment and top up lagoons. Rain pans holding water big attraction for game as they become more concentrated.
Game: Zebra and wildebeest start their mini migration back to the delta from the rainpans. Migrant bird species start to leave. A lot of elephant in the dry area as the clay bottomed rain pans become their main source of water. Marula trees are ripe, good food for the elephant. Good sightings of hippo and crocodile in the lagoons as they await the arrival of the floodwater.

May- start of dry season
Weather: One of the most interesting months. The flood usually arrives in May.
Area: Dry riverbeds start flowing and the sudden growth of vegetation and sound is phenomenal.
Game: Usually exceptional game viewing on the tongue of the flood as it moves through the area.

Winter (June- July)
Weather: Coldest months especially in the evening. Pleasant during day and dry. Temperature varies 10 –20 degree. Sun shines every day.
Area: Flood normally arrives at Mokolwane mid May and Kujwana about 2 weeks later. Qwaapu receives water mid June. Exciting time to be in the delta. Watching the annual transformation of the delta. Deep wades and swimming begin.
Game: Great birding with the arrival of the floods. As the molapos start to fill they attract big herds of zebra, giraffe and impala. Large herds of buffalo. Elephant start feeding on Mokolwane palms.

Spring (August- October)
Weather: Warming up to hot.
Area: Trees start to flower. Water at its peak and starts to drop toward September and October. Molapas are green and lush. Water lilies fill the lagoons. Very pretty time of year.
Game: Migrant bird species start to arrive. Carmine bee-eaters start to nest. Wattled crane are nesting and in August the elephants feed on the fruit of the palm tree.

Summer (November)- start of rainy season
Weather: Temperatures reach 30 – 40 degrees.
Area: Water levels dropping fast. Good ground.
Game: Ungulates i.e. impala and tsessebe start to calve. Zebra start to foal. Big herds of buffalo.
