While it is not uncommon to experience spectacular emergences at other times, peak emergences generally occur in July and August. Please bear in mind that factors such as drought, rain and predators can affect emergence reliability. Please book your visit at least 5 days in advance of the tour. Requests and emails sent after 5:00 p.m. on Fridays will not be received until the following Monday.
