When to Travel to Jabali Ridge

The best game viewing in Ruaha is from June to November, when it’s hot and dry. The rains that fall from November until April transform the landscape, making it perfect for photography and birding. Jabali Ridge closes from mid-March until the end of May, when the park is difficult to traverse.

Why travel at this time

The landscape is lush and healthy and the air clear of haze, making for excellent photography conditions. There are fewer tourists in the area and plenty of breaks in the rain to explore the park. The migratory birds are in Ruaha at this time and elephants have arrived in great numbers. 


January is the rainiest month of the year and it continues to rain consistently until the end of March. Jabali Ridge closes from mid-March. The temperature is hot and humid, with an average high of 28°C/82°F and low of 17°C/63°F.
