Southern Africa in March
In March, Mozambique’s rainy season ends, but the weather remains sunny and pleasant for lounging on the beach, snorkelling and scuba diving .This is also the best time of year to view green turtles breeding on the beaches.
Botswana, like most of Africa, is in transition in March. Because this is the ‘low season’ for Botswana safaris, several camps in the Okavango Delta have amazing ‘off-season’ deals.
The Makgadikgadi Pans are packed with zebras in early March, and the flat terrain makes game viewing easy. This month marks the start of their annual trek back to the Okavango Delta. Which involves half of the Okavango Delta’s zebra population migrating on a 500km round trip to the lush grasslands of Makgadikgadi.
March is also a great time of year to explore Cape Town, the winelands, cultural events, and natural vistas! Combine this with a Kruger National Park safari for some amazing wildlife spotting opportunities.
