At Jawai Conservation Reserve there is no restriction for viewing wildlife at any time of the year. However, during summer, the weather is unbearably hot so resulting in decreased sightings, as leopards prefer staying hidden in their shelter. During the months of October, November and February, the weather is quite pleasant and one can see leopards for a long duration without any difficulty. The months of December and January are quite cold but one can not only see the elusive cat but also enjoy migratory birds in the waters of Jawai dam. Hence, the ideal time to visit Jawai is between October to February.
