Birdwatching or birding is a form of wildlife observation in which the observation of birds is a recreational activity. It can be done with the naked eye, through a visual enhancement device like binoculars and telescopes, or by listening for bird sounds.

In summer (December to February) birding is outstanding with resident and migratory birds but poor wildlife visibility.

Crowds and Weather

Southern winter; the dry season (May to September) is not only the best time for wildlife but also low season with fewer tourists, except for school holiday: It’s less busy in camps and on the roads. Days are sunny with low humidity and nights are cold. Fewer mosquito and a very low risk for malaria.

The busiest months in the main camps are in southern summer (November to March) if possible avoid the Christmas school holidays. The rain starts end of October. The scenery gets lush and green, but during summer it’s also hot and humid and heavy rainfalls occur. If rivers get flooded, you can't pass bridges. Wildlife game viewing is not as good as in southern winter.

Between September to March, you may spot breeding pairs of Oystercatchers. Summer is perfect for birding at the De Hoop Vlei. 

Gates are open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. in summer and from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. in winter.

The dry season from November until March. With the first rain in April tens of thousands ducks get attracted.

For my opinion the the dry season from December to April. Although you might see the Olive Ridley Turtles at the rainy season and reptiles and amphibians are more abundant.

The begin of the seabird breeding season is November with the peak from December to February. In March and April, you already spot fewer tropicbirds breeding under bushes. These months are also the best ones to spot boobies breeding.


The dry season from January to May is the best time for your vacation on Trinidad and Togabo. Showers can occur throughout the year. During the rainy season, it may frequently rain each day, but the sky clears up in between. There is often a short break between mid-September until mid-October Luckily, Trinidad and Tobago are south of the hurricane belt and hardly experience any hurricane, but it can happen as it did in September 1963 and September 2004. Trinidad is more likely to be affected between August and September.

TT Trinidad and Tobago

During the dry season (May to September) rain is rare, it's less hot and there are fewer mosquitos. This time of the year is the peak season and prices are at the top level.
