When to Travel

Africa is a truly vast continent with many different altitudes and seasons. This means that the weather varies enormously.

Seasons are often described as ‘green’, which usually coincides with lush landscapes, thick vegetation, fewer tourists and lower costs; or ‘dry’ which heralds huge numbers of game and sometimes busy national parks. Whichever season you choose to travel, we have destinations that work beautifully throughout the year.

The charts below give a guide to the seasons, average temperatures and our suggestions as to when to travel. Please note that these are a guide only – with weather patterns changing all the time, it is impossible to be precise as to the exact weather conditions you are likely to experience.

Our experts are on hand to advise on everything from the likely whereabouts of the wildebeest migration to the time of year you might need to pack an extra fleece.
