June To September: 
The climate is invigorating, the forest lush, tender and green. Game spotting is at its peak. As we are located in a rain shadow area, we do not receive torrential rainfall. Our monsoon is characterized, rather, by short spurts of rain, strong wind and temperatures between 16 degree celcius to 28 degree celcius.
A good pair of walking shoes is a necessity. Jeans or tough trousers and a windcheater will save your hide should you should choose to walk through bush. If you prefer short walks or plan on lazing it, though, shorts and a T shirt should suffice. Oh – and don’t forget your umbrella!

October To November: 
In this season, you should see plenty of wild life, as the undergrowth thickens for the winter. The temperatures range from 13o C to 21o C.The mornings are misty, with the clouds sitting on the mountain ranges. The North-East Monsoon sets in and is through by the end of November.
A sweater may be required. You will definitely need an umbrella or a raincoat, and a tough pair of shoes to help you over wet ground and rocks . A couple of pairs of socks would be a good idea – and a second pair of shoes in case you decide to walk into a puddle.

December To January:
Our winter boasts clear blue skies, cool, starry nights and sunny days. Temperatures drop significantly. Mornings are generally misty.Attire: 
The air is a bit nippy, and a sweater would be a good thing to have with you. We do offer the more exciting option of a bonfire on clear nights, though.

February To April:
The advent of summer is characterized by dry warmth. The deciduous forest is bare. Game is usually spotted around water holes. There are often small forest fires, which burn some of the undergrowth by day, only to be extinguished by dew at night.Attire:
Light clothing, sun glasses, hats and sunscreen would be appropriate. Again, don’t forget those walking shoes and trousers!

May weather is uniformly unpredictable – Pre-monsoon showers, warm days that draw in clouds, thunder bolts, short blasts of rain – and the jungle comes alive . The vegetation revives and sprouts fresh shoots . The birds sing louder. All in all the flora and fauna come alive.Attire:
Light clothing (think Baywatch) with sunscreen lotion (think sunburn).
