Our Recommendation for April
In April, East Africa is in the midst of its long rains, making the weather unpredictable but providing lots of young and therefore large herds in the Great Migration. In the safari areas of southern Africa the rains have passed, and with them the intense heat of summer. The bush is left beautiful, lush and green after months of rain, which can make searching for larger game a challenge, but it is fantastic for birding. In Botswana and Zambia the rivers are full, making this a spectacular time to visit both the Okavango Delta and Victoria Falls, which are at their peak volume. This is also one of the best times of the year to visit Namibia, as well as the beach destinations of Mauritius and the Seychelles.
