When is the best time of year to go on safari?

In sub-Saharan Africa, wildlife can be seen all year. However, there are seasonal variations. and game viewing is usually best in the winter when the bush is less dense and animals tend to gather where there is available surface water, rather than being scattered over the plains.

The wildlife in Africa can be seen all year round. The winter months in Africa, between June and September, are considered the ‘high season’. This is a time of year during which vegetation is sparse, allowing for enhanced wildlife sightings. Water resources are also more scarce, meaning that a larger number of animals will congregate together to drink throughout the day. However, during the fringe ‘green’ season, guests are treated to an entirely different but equally amazing experience. Mothers give birth to their young, whilst bird migration patterns result enhanced viewings of rare species. It entirely depends on what you wish to see on your safari!
