The park is open from July to April (closed May and June) and each season unfolds a new facet of the park, making it great to visit at any time.

July - September: The nesting season begins with the onset of the monsoon and this is a time when bird species like Painted Stork, Open-bill Stork and Eurasian Spoonbill are breeding by the thousands.

Oct - March: This is the peak season, when the weather is great, the migratory birds arrive on their annual visit to the park and the park is at its busiest.

End Feb - end March: This is when the winter visitors begin to depart and your last chance to see them until they return for the next winter.
