Inspire by Month

Africa is a vast and diverse continent with a wide range of climates and habitats. When planning your holiday this fact is important to keep in mind, as the time of year you decide to go to a particular destination will dictate the quality and quantity of wildlife that you will  be likely to see whilst you are there. To help make things a little bit easier for you, we’ve decided to produce a simple month by month guide to help give you some idea of what to expect from the weather and wildlife throughout the year. However, if you want peace of mind then we recommend giving one of our Africa experts a call on 020 7843 3500. They have years of unparalleled experience and are therefore best placed to advise you on the optimum time to visit a particular destination. We look forward to helping you plan your dream Africa holiday.

*Please note that due to the unpredictable nature of weather and animal movements this information should be viewed only as a guide.

First Time to Africa

No experience can quite compare to your very first safari. Whether it’s starting out at the crack of dawn or just as the sun begins to set, the excitement that builds as you wait to spot your very first animal is truly one of the greatest feelings one can have. More than just viewing some of the most majestic creatures to grace the planet in their natural habitat, hearing the stories of your expert guide and taking in the breath-taking scenery will guarantee this is a trip you never forget.
