When is the best time to go on an African safari?

The safari possibilities in Africa are endless, and as it is a huge continent, the climate massively varies from one area to the next. Generally, though, if you are looking at maximising your wildlife viewing experience and that is your only consideration, you should look to the “dry season” in the country you are interested in. East Africa’s dry season is generally from July – November, but also there is a dry spell from January – March which is also a fantastic time to visit. An East Africa classic safari is usually spent in Kenya and Tanzania, but you can also look at gorilla trekking in Rwanda or Uganda.

Southern Africa’s dry season is slightly more dramatic, with the rainy season beginning in December and lasting until May. The best months to visit are therefore from June – November, but be warned, if you go in October although the wildlife is phenomenal, it is extremely hot!

There are though perks at not going in these times though – see our blog on green season in Africa. The best thing to do is to give us a call to discuss though, and then we can make recommendations based on your specific preferences and expectations of your trip. It is very confusing, but often when chatting on the phone it is a lot easier to begin recommending suitable options.
