Best Time For Jungle Safari

The best time for wildlife safaris in Nepal is from October to April. During this time, the weather is dry, and temperatures are comfortable. This makes it easier to enjoy safari activities and increases the chances of seeing wildlife. From October to December, after the monsoon season, the landscapes are lush and green, perfect for outdoor activities and photography. The skies are clear, offering beautiful views.

From January to March, animals are easier to spot because cooler temperatures drive them to open areas and waterholes. In April, even though it gets hotter, rising temperatures make wildlife gather around water sources, making them more visible. However, from May to September, during the monsoon season, the weather can be challenging, and parks may be harder to access, so it’s not the best time for safaris.
