Best Time to Visit Africa for A Safari

Pondering about taking your maiden safari to a distant small world of wonders? But limited by advice on which is the best travel period. The answer to this is absolutely amazing! Good news is that you can visit Africa any time of the year.

Most safari destinations in Africa are located in the equatorial region with friendly climatic patterns all year through. No rain or sunshine is too much or too less to stop an African safari from happening.

However, it is still better for one to understand different climatic changes and seasons in Africa, so they can better prepare and properly decide when to travel.

In Africa, the dry season happens from June to October and December to February. This is the peak season when animals are closer to game tracks and concentrated around waterholes and so can be easily spotted.

June, July, August and September are the best months to see variety of wildlife but the Great Migration in Tanzania is easily seen in June and July whereas July to October are the best months to sight the great migration in Kenya. This is also the best time for tracking primates, especially the mountain gorillas in misty mountains of Rwanda, Congo and Uganda.

Rainy seasons run between late October to early December and March to May. This is always a low season for safaris, but travel discounts from various safari operators and accommodation facilities may stimulate your enthusiasm. This season is also better to sight migratory birds, especially between September and April.
