Southern Africa in May
The best time to visit Kruger National Park is from May to September. During the driest months of the year, because this is the time that the animals most frequently gather around waterholes. This, along with the drier and sparse vegetation, makes finding the wildlife in Kruger a breeze.
Etosha National Park in Namibia is also best visited from May to October, when the dry environment receives little rain. That’s because the dry weather makes seeing lions, elephants, rhinos, and other animals super easy since they all need to drink from the watering holes.
May marks the end of the rainy season in Mozambique. While May is warm, the humidity is lower than earlier in the year, making a Mozambique holiday super enjoyable. The calm, clear waters are great for water sports.
Travel to Mauritius for an island holiday in May for decreased humidity and warmer sunny weather. Summer is over and the cooler temperature makes lounging on the beach a pleasure.
