Top Picks for Travel in February

Top Picks for February

Quirimbas Archipelago Mozambique

 

Season High Summer Average Temperature for February 27 Celsius 81 Fahrenheit

What to do: Sunset dhow cruises, trips to historic Ibo Island, relaxing on powdery beaches and sampling the day’s catch. Not to mention excellent diving and snorkeling.

Why: Quirimbas Archipelago is fairly untouched by cyclone season. Islands like Vamizi, Quilalea and Medjumbe bask in tropical sunshine.

 

Ngorongoro Crater – Tanzania

 

Season High Summer Average Temperature for February 22 Celsius 71 Fahrenheit

What to do: Some of the most superb Big 5 game viewing in the world.

Why: Ngorongoro has very easy game viewing because the animals never venture beyond the Crater’s walls. It is generally very busy with avid safari goers but February is one of its quieter times, meaning more space to yourself and better rates.

When to book: The Crater is very popular so don’t leave it until the last minute.

 

Samburu National Park Kenya

 

Season High Summer Average Temperature for February 28 Celsius 82 Fahrenheit

What: Game drives to spot the Samburu Special 5: these species are endemic to the region and comprise endangered Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, beisa oryx, Somali ostrich and gerenuk.

Why: Samburu lies in an arid part of Kenya but after the summer rains its doum palm groves and thorny scrub spring to life with plenty of grazing. Look out for baby gerenuks.

Top Picks For Travel in January

Posted on June 29th, 2020 by Overland Africa

Top Picks For Travel in January

Top Picks for January. Whether you are planning to witness the Great Wildebeest Migration in East Africa, experience a Big 5 safari in the Kruger National Park or relax on the beach in Zanzibar, timing is important. Our guidelines are based on our expert, on-the-ground knowledge of Africa’s travel seasons.

Zanzibar Tanzania

Season High Summer, Average Temperature for January 27 Celsius 80 Fahrenheit

What to Expect: Diving, Snorkeling, Sailing,  Spice Tour, Stone Town Tour

Why: Zanzibar is an island off the Indian Coast of Tanzania and averages only five rainy days for the month of January. The south of the main island offers the best diving conditions while the north has the best sunset views. For exceptional reef diving and snorkeling, head to the exclusive outlying islands of Pemba, Mafia and Mnemba. Zanzibar is also home to Stone Town, a World Heritage Site with plenty to see and do. A beach holiday on Zanzibar is the perfect way to relax after the early morning wake-up calls of a Southern Serengeti safari.

Southern Serengeti – Tanzania

Season High Summer Average Temperature for January 17 Celsius 63 Fahrenheit

What to Expect: Calving season during the Great Wildebeest Migration.

Why: The herds mass in the Southern Serengeti at this time of year to take advantage of the excellent grazing – depending on whether good rains fell in time – that will sustain their calves. About 8 000 calves are born every day and there is plenty of predator action from lions, hyenas, leopards, wild dogs and jackals. Game drives will take you to the heart of the action.

Gorilla Trekking Uganda

Season High Summer Average Temperature for January 11 Celsius 64 Fahrenheit

What to Expect: Trekking mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

Why: January generally coincides with a short dry spell, making it easier and more comfortable to trek because there is less rain and mud.

When to book: All gorilla-trekking destinations issue a limited number of permits per day and there is limited accommodation available in remote parks like Bwindi. Book as soon as you decide to go trekking to avoid disappointment – peak dry season is very popular.

Bringing Africa’s Top Safari Parks to you .. Botswana Chobe Safari: Africa’s Elephant Paradise

Posted on June 22nd, 2020 by Overland Africa

Bringing Africa’s Top Safari Parks to you .. Botswana Chobe Safari: Africa’s Elephant Paradise

Explore some of Africa’s TOP Safari parks ..dream now ..travel later 

Soon we will all travel again! In the meantime, we will continue fuelling our inspirations and travel dreams to you until you can go on safari again.

Choosing when to go on a safari is something that should be carefully considered for the experience to meet your expectations. For general game viewing, there is no real ‘best time’ to go. We would love to share some information to help you decide where and when to go on safari!

Botswana Chobe Safari: Africa’s Elephant Paradise

Why Go?

If there’s one memory that you’ll take away from a Chobe safari, it’s that of elephants. About 120 000 live in and around Chobe National Park, and inconceivable numbers of these gentle giants can be seen crowding the banks of the Chobe River during Botswana’s dry season.Chobe is also one of the best places in Africa to witness the most dramatic predator action – its Savuti region is where lions regularly clash with hyenas and powerful prides famously take down Africa’s biggest game like buffalo, giraffe and even elephants.

Chobe National Park is about the size of Northern Ireland and a haven for the biggest elephant populations on the planet. Chobe offers game drives and river cruises in an unspoilt environment that supports massive herds of not only elephant but also a multitude of buffalo that is unrivalled elsewhere in Africa.

When to Go?

Most visitors go to Chobe National Park for its famous dry-season game viewing. From May to the end of October/early November, ever-increasing numbers of water-dependent animals (especially elephants and buffalo) are concentrated along the Chobe River as well as in the park’s central Savuti region.

May, June and July are bone-dry with cold nights but temperatures rise rapidly as the rainy season approaches. August, September and October offer sensational game viewing but under very hot conditions.

If you can handle the heat, this is the best game-viewing time for a Chobe safari. The arrival of the rains trigger a dispersal of game from the Chobe River area but the warm, rainy December to March summer months are the best time to visit Chobe for bird watching, the impala birthing season (great for predators!) and to see the Savute zebra migration. Indeed, many safari experts rate early summer as the best time to go to Savute.

Bringing Africa’s Top Safari Parks to you .. Namibia…Etosha National Park

Posted on June 22nd, 2020 by Overland Africa

Explore some of Africa’s TOP Safari parks ..dream now ..travel later 

Soon we will all travel again! In the meantime, we will continue fuelling our inspirations and travel dreams to you until you can go on safari again.

Choosing when to go on a safari is something that should be carefully considered for the experience to meet your expectations. For general game viewing, there is no real ‘best time’ to go. We would love to share some information to help you decide where and when to go on safari!

Namibia…Etosha National Park one of Africa’s TOP Safari parks

Why Go?

Regarded by safari experts as one of Africa’s greatest wildlife reserves, the 22 750 km² Etosha National Park is one of the easiest, safest and most rewarding big game destinations in Southern Africa. You will appreciate the good roads and wide range of animals and photographers will relish the action at the game-packed waterholes! Dominated by the pancake-flat Etosha Pan, a 5 000km² seasonally flooded depression, Etosha National Park is an area of open, grassy woodland and thick scrub, studded with waterholes.

When to Go?

May to October winter months are widely regarded as the best time to visit Namibia for game viewing. The skies are clear, the risk of malaria is at its lowest, and animals are increasingly concentrated around water sources as the dry season wears on. Prepare however for freezing night time temperatures in June and July whereas September and October can be extremely hot. The summer rains between November and April turn the country green and occasionally bring floods to the desert. December can see very rewarding game viewing in Etosha and summer is the best time to go to Namibia for bird watching though you’ll need to watch out for malaria in the Caprivi Strip (newly renamed the Zambezi Region), Namibia’s wettest region and a place best avoided in the peak wet months of January and February.

  • The sheer abundance of game. Above all else, Etosha is known for its wealth of big game.
  • The dramatic landscapes. Etosha’s most well-known feature is the vast salt pan that is found at its heart, which is so big it can be seen from space. …
  • The park is packed with an eclectic mix of familiar faces such as elephant, giraffe, lion, leopard and zebra as well as the desert specialists like springbok and the handsome gemsbok.
  • It’s also one of the best places in Southern Africa to see the endangered cheetah and black rhino not to mention rare antelope species like black-faced impala, Damara dik dik and roan antelope, plus there’s a bird count of 340 species – an interesting blend of savannah, water and desert birds.
  • The chance to explore beyond the park..
