Weather and Climate

Luxury safaris run throughout the year, but it’s important to note that the heavy rains from March to around May can make your inland trip more challenging. On the flip side, the prices are usually lower during this period and the lush landscapes and stormy skies can be very dramatic. However, from July to October you can witness the great migration. In general, wildlife can be seen throughout the year with December boasting 10 hours of sunshine per day.
