Our recommendations for August
The decision where to go depends on the style of safari you are after – and ultimately, your budget. In East Africa, the Great Migration starts to move from the northern parts of the Serengeti into Kenya, becoming a genuine contender for the finest safari experience on the continent. Gorilla trekking in Rwanda is perfect, as the days are clear. In Southern Africa, August is, quite simply, ridiculously good. Botswana and Zambia, specifically, offer what we believe is world-class safari. Temperatures are cooling down in Mauritius, but Mozambique and the Seychelles are still offering lovely warm temperatures.
