Spring and Summer is a time when the bush is green, lush, and thick. It is also the time of year when the reserve is filled with many newborn animals.

Winter, June – August

Autumn and Winter are the dry months. The bush is less dense and lacks water. At this time, animals frequent the waterholes more often.
