When is the best time to travel to Africa? Any time, keep reading to find out why


We are always asked, when is the best time to travel to Africa? Well, we always encourage our guests to travel whenever they can make it!  Africa will put on a show for you in all seasons! Being an all year-round destination there are pros and cons for every season. It also depends on where in Africa you want to travel to.

Did you know that for example Summer in Botswana (from November to March) is a great time of year for travellers to take advantage of amazingly discounted rates. It is the season of change, the scenery becomes refreshingly lush and vibrant, nature has waited for months for the arrival of the rains, the landscape changes from sandy grey into fresh green. Many animals awaited the first summer rains impatiently and now drop their offspring, migratory birds arrive making the months from December to March the best time for birders. 

Journeys & Africa have great itineraries showcasing the best of what Africa has to offer including this special time. 

For example, this package combines Victoria Falls, Chobe and Khwai Community Area and offers true value for money. Vic Falls is an ideal place to start your safari, during 3-night stay clients can enjoy all the different exciting activities to choose from.

The next destination is famous Chobe for a remarkable wildlife experience due to the permanent water source of the Chobe River. Chobe is home to huge herds of elephants, buffaloes and zebra attracting high densities of predators. Finally finish off with a stay in the Khwai area. 

Khwai is known as one of the best areas in Botswana to see leopard. Activities at Sango range from game drives, guided walks, village visits to Mokoro excursions (water level dependent).
