When is the best time to visit Mokala National Park?
Although wildlife viewing is good throughout the year, the dry winter months of May to September are the best. During this season - animals gather at the waterholes and rivers, making them easier to spot. However, the daytime temperature is comfortable. There may not be many predator mammals, but the park seems to attract more than its fair share of raptors. However, Look out for martial eagles, and a range of vultures - including lappet-faced, white backed and cape vultures. At night - with the Kalahari sky full of stars, keep an eye open for the Cape eagle owls in the camel thorns.
