December – March : This is the green season and is usually not the best time to view wildlife because of all the vegetation. It is, however, the cheapest time to visit Hwange.
April – June & November : At this time there is no rain and there is less vegetation therefore making animal sighting better.
July-October : This is the dry season and is the best time to visit Hwange. It is also the busiest and most expensive time to go, but the animal sightings will be exceptional.
