Best time to visit Swaziland / Best time to visit Eswatini – In addition to the small size of the national parks of Swaziland that ease sighting of animals, a wildlife viewer’s best time for a safari is during the dry season (May to Septeber) when vegetation is dry and seasonal waterholes are dry. Dry and short vegetation enables easy sighting and viewing of animals while scarcity of water forces the animals to move to the main water bodies.
Bird watching has excellent results in the wet season-summer, when migratory birds from Europe and North Africa arrive and increase the bird population. Reptiles are also commonly sighted during this wet season.
