Kruger National Park in November

enter image description here

The first proper rain of the wet season starts to arrive during November in the form of the occasional afternoon thunder shower. Expect hot and humid days and balmy evenings.

The southern section of the park has the highest density of animals and in terms of visitor numbers, November is the calm before the storm of the end-of-year holidays. The upper central and far northern regions start seeing the first arrivals of migratory bird species and are a good bet for birding focussed safaris.

November is a great time to spot baby animals and the young impala, one of the most abundant antelope species in the park, are especially cute. It is a quieter time of the year too as most South Africans plan their visits for the December holidays. On the other hand, humidity is high and the risk of malaria increases.
