When to visit
The best time to visit this section of the park is towards the end of the rains, when the vegetation is at its best and, if you are lucky, you'll find scattered herds of gemsbok, springbok and zebra. During this time the best sites to go to are the more open ones, like Ganab, on the plains.
For the rest of the year it is still spectacular, but you'll find fewer animals around. Then perhaps it's better to visit Homeb, or one of the inselbergs, as the flora and fauna there remain a little more constant than those on the plains – not shrivelling up so much in the dryness of winter.
