Our Top Picks for Travel in June


Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda and Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda

Season-Winter Average Temperature for June -20 Celsius 66 Fahrenheit

What: Superb gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda and Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda.

Why: Both lie in Africa’s equatorial rainforest belt but in June, Uganda’s rainfall is a fifth of what it was in March while Rwanda’s precipitation is down by 90 percent compared to April. This dry spell makes trekking much easier as there is less heavy-going mud. More sunlight also penetrates the forest canopy, making it lighter for photographers hoping to snap the ultimate gorilla shot.


Grumeti River Tanzania

Season-Winter Average Temperature for June-21 Celsius 70 Fahrenheit

What: Witness thousands of wildebeest crossing the Grumeti River during their annual migration around the Serengeti-Masai Mara ecosystem.

Why: The river crossings are considered one of the most dramatic aspects of the Wildebeest Migration and thousands of safari goers flock to see them. The Grumeti crossings are far more exclusive because they take place in the private Grumeti Reserve. This means far fewer vehicles and people, making for a far more exclusive experience.


Masai Mara National Park Kenya

Season-WinterAverage Temperature for June-19 Celsius-66 Fahrenheit

What: Classic game viewing without the crowds.

Why: The weather is cooler and drierand the animals aren’t venturing too far from water or grazing as winter settles in, making for superb game viewing. The other bonus is that the Wildebeest Migration is generally still in the Grumeti and Serengeti in Tanzania, making Kenya far less crowded. You may not see the Migration but you will see the Masai Mara’s iconic sunsets and rolling savannah.
