The driest months are January and February, with a highest monthly average high temperature of 34˚C (93˚F) in February, from a countrywide average temperature of 26˚C (79˚F). The biotope varies between mountainous regions, forests (with a high humidity), wetlands and savannah.

Normal hunting clothing can be worn during the day and bring along a hunting jacket as well. Please bring long-sleeve shirts because it's good protection against mosquitoes at night around the campfire. Bring at least four pairs of trousers or shorts and shirts.
