When to Go

Travelling in the South is possible at any time of year, but each season will bring with it a different experience. Many tourists choose to go between September and November when the landscape is alive with green after the rainy season. December through April is also fine hiking weather, as the sun is often out and temperatures are higher, but views tend to be a little hazy, and the landscape turns from vivid green to yellow and dry. The least popular hiking months are June, July and August when rain falls daily. Temperatures during the day tend to be comfortably warm in all seasons but can fall below zero at night, so pack warms clothes and a good sleeping bag.

Keep In Mind

To make sure that your environmental impact is minimal, whenever you travel, don’t forget to take the following steps:
  • Always carry ID or relevant document at your side;
  • Try to avoid expensive jewelry or unnecessary equipment, if not carry them with you at all costs;
  • Do not collect or damage any vegetation and do not disturb or feed wild animals;
  • Remember to take all of your litter with you;
  • Camp only in designated areas;
  • Always use latrines where provided, or bury waste at least 100 meters away from water;
  • Do not use soaps in natural waterways.
