Safari in January

Zebra migrationIn January, you’ll find huge numbers of wildebeest grazing alongside zebra in the southern plains of Tanzania, ahead of their spectacular migration north.

Meanwhile, another large but lesser-known migration is underway in Botswana. Each year, thousands of zebra flock hundreds of kilometres from the salt pans to the Boteti river – then back again. By January, zebra have begun their return journey, and it’s a great opportunity to see these striped safari stars in dazzling abundance. It’s also a good time to spot elephants feasting on the fruit of Botswana’s marula trees.

In Kenya, hippo sightings are more common at this time of year, while Rwanda’s short dry season provides the ideal conditions for a walking safari.
