When is the best time to travel Southern Africa?

Southern Africa is a year-round destination as different regions are spectacular at different times.
Winter months are between May and September. These months are often popular for game viewing, as it is dry and the wildlife is much easier to see and it is also cooler.
In summer, the temperatures can reach between 30 and 40 °C. But in many countries, summer is the best time to visit beautiful beaches and coastal resorts. Summer often coincides with the rainy season, resulting in lush, green countryside and lovely scenery.

When is the best time to travel East Africa?

It is a safari destination and the best time to travel is during the dry months. The rainy season is from April to June – and there are short rains from late November through December. It is often less expensive to travel during the long rainy season.
Dry season offers excellent game viewing and more reliable road conditions. Wildlife gathers around the limited water sources, making it easier to spot animals.
July and August are generally extremely busy months in East Africa, offering comfortable temperatures in addition to being a popular travel time worldwide. It is important to book in advance.
