When to Travel to Jabali Private House

The best time to visit Ruaha is in the dry season, from June to October. The wet season runs from November until April, transforming the landscape, making it a perfect time for photography. It’s a great time for birding too, as the migratory birds are in Ruaha. Note that Jabali Private House is closed from mid-March until June.

Why travel at this time

This period is perfect for photography, with a lush, healthy landscape and clear skies. There are fewer tourists and enough breaks in the rain to get out and explore the park. The migratory birds have arrived in Ruaha, along with large herds of elephants. 


January is the peak of wet season and it continues to rain consistently until April. Jabali Private House closes from mid-March, when the park’s roads become difficult to drive. It’s hot and humid; the average high is 28°C/82°F and the average low is 17°C/63°F.
