March & April


AFRICAN SAFARIS IN MARCH AND APRIL

The months of March and April form the second half of the summer months in Southern Africa, and part of the rainy season of the inland safari areas.


SOUTHERN AFRICA

These hot, dry summer months are definitely the best months to visit Cape Town, the Cape wine-lands and the Western Cape area of South Africa. The hot summer days, fresh skies and beautiful colours with less wind than earlier in the summer make this time ideal. These months are normally free of rain, and allow for much in the way of outdoor lifestyle and appreciation of nature.

Further north, the autumn months between March and May can be an excellent time to visit Sossusvlei and Sesriem in Namibia, when the temperatures are more moderate and the gin-clear skies make for excellent photography.

Whilst not quite as good as the winter months for big game viewing, these summer months are a time of plenty in the Kruger National Park, the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, Thornybush and Klaserie reserves as animals flourish in the abundances brought by the summer rainfall in the area.

To witness the second largest game migration in Africa, and flocks of thousands of flamingos - head to the area near
the Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans in Botswana. These areas are green and lush during the summer months.

The high level of water in the Zambezi River means these are the most impressive months to view the mighty Victoria Falls, however if you're heading there for white water rafting, we would suggest going later in the year during October or November.


EAST AFRICA

The seasonal fluctuations in temperature and rainfall are not quite as marked in East Africa as they are in southern Africa, and so these can also be good months to visit Tanzania. Temperatures are warm but manageable in most locations, and the great migration starts to head northward again back onto the Serengeti plains.
