When should I go on safari?

Southern Africa is a welcoming year-round destination. Nevertheless, your safari experience will vary with seasonal temperatures, rain and the presence of water on the ground.

Cooler, long, dry winter months bring dry and sparser scrubby brown bush, improving visibility for game viewing. Limited water sources increase animal density around them, concentrating prey and predators.

The hot, wet summer, brings rich new vegetation sustaining newborn mammals and the returning migratory species. The bush becomes lush, verdant and spotted with flashes of bright colour.

There is a safari for all seasons in the bush.
