When to Go Where
This is always the age old question when planning any sort of trip. When should you go? Or, if your dates are fixed, where is the best place to visit at that time?
Africa is a vast continent so the climate and experiences vary considerably from Ethiopia to South Africa. There are climatic variations even within countries so that it could be distinctly chilly in the highlands of Madagascar, but balmy on its sub-tropical beaches.
Our Safari Calendar below suggests some of the best places to visit in any one month. Click on your month of travel to get some ideas.
But remember that sometimes it’s quite lovely to visit a country in their quieter season. There are fewer people, the prices may be more appealing, and the weather is not always consistent from year to year.
