Our Recommendation for April
In April, East Africa is in the midst of its long rains, making the weather unpredictable. However, the game is exceptionally good in the Serengeti and the Great Migration is in full flow. 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 the rivers are full, making this a spectacular time to visit both the Okavango Delta and Victoria Falls (in Zimbabwe and Zambia), which are at their peak volume. This is also one of the best times of the year to visit the beach destinations of Mauritius and the Seychelles.
