The Best of Africa Safari...

When's the best time to go on an Africa safari Holiday?

If you're looking to sample a Kenya safari then we recommend visiting at the start of the year, typically between January and March. The great migration travels through the Serengeti and Masai Mara on a year round cycle as the wildebeest and zebra follow the rains in search of the luscious new green shoots. In February it's calving season in the southern Serengeti. From July the migration heads into Kenya, with spectacular river crossings. Speak to one of our Africa travel consultants who can guide you as to where to see one of the greatest wildlife spectaculars in the world.

Between June and October are the months to head to Tanzania when there are plenty of wildlife spectacles to catch. Our guides can help you make the most of your safari and help you spot some of the Serengeti's abundant wildlife. 

South Africa is a good year round destination but some of the best game viewing occurs in the dry season between April and September. 

Between May and October are also the best months to enjoy a Botswana safari holiday.
