Southern Africa in June
The Okavango Delta’s dry season begins in June, when animals come to the Delta in pursuit of water, making for superb wildlife viewing. The weather is pleasant, and there are less mosquitoes this time of year which makes for the perfect Okavango Delta Safari.
June also marks the start of winter in South Africa and the northern wildlife reserves’ peak season for game viewing. As the grass dries in the South African bush, the wildlife becomes easier to find which is perfect when on Safari in South Africa.
In June, all wilderness camps in Zambia open their doors to guests for safari. The effects of the green season can still be felt, and wildlife is plentiful. Plus, several camps are providing discounted rates in June, making a Zambia safari relatively affordable.
In Zimbabwe, on the other hand, the dry season encourages animals to gather near waterholes and rivers, resulting in excellent wildlife viewing opportunities for your safari in Zimbabwe. In addition to that, the Victoria Falls are at their most powerful in June too and the best view of the falls can be seen from the Zimbabwean side.
