As a continent of 54 countries, Africa offers an incredibly exciting opportunity to travel across a plethora of diverse countries. Each, with a rich culture and heritage, we are drawn to learn, discover and explore. From dry desolate deserts with green oases to enchanting coastal towns and lush jungles teeming with wildlife, Africa is a new adventure waiting to be explored.
Don’t miss the Pyramids of Giza and the Valley of Kings in Egypt, where you will be in awe of ancient civilisations, mythology and culture. Make sure you visit the Devil’s Pool near Victoria Falls in Zambia and bathe next to the beautiful waterfalls. For more archaeological sites, Lalibela in Ethiopia, offers a semi-excavated ruin of huge proportions, while Western Kenya offers the chance to see the exotic wildlife of the Masai Mara. Witness ancient customs and traditions that are still kept alive today.
When to go to Africa for Safaris
Africa is warm and sunny throughout most of the year, but certain countries and even regions experience a variety of climates.
When to go on a Southern Africa safari: the dry season in Southern Africa is between May and October, and this is best for spotting wildlife as magnificent beasts gather at waterholes. The wet season is between December and March, a hot and often humid period with short bursts of rain.
When to go on an East Africa safari: most Kenya safari destinations are at their best between January and the end of March, when the climate is mild and dry. For the Masai Mara migration, however, you’ll need to go between mid-August and late October, when the herds have returned. Safaris in Tanzania are most popular between June and October, but the best time to go for the wildebeest migration is between mid-December and March (southern Serengeti) and July to October (northern Serengeti).
