South Africa

South Africa’s diversity has earned the very appropriate nickname: “The Rainbow Nation”. Unspoiled nature scenes, an interesting cultural mix ignited by the diversity in the population are some of the elements that have contributed to this nickname. This in combination with a pleasant climate all year round makes South Africa a unique and fantastic country to travel to. 

In South Africa, nothing is impossible. Miles of uninterrupted beaches and beautiful weather alternated with an exclusive safari in one of the many game reserves; playing a round of golf on some of the most breathtaking courses in the world; rafting, surfing, visiting the beaches or hiking in the Drakensberg mountains; enjoying a wine tasting, all of these elements make South Africa unique and a must on your travel list.

The best time to visit South Africa depends on where you want to go and what your plans are. The drier winter months between May and October is the best time for game viewing as animals are concentrated around water sources and are easier to spot in the thinned-out bush. For a Cape Town beach holiday you might want to visit during the hot summer months between November and March.

Namibia

With easy access to wildlife, the world’s largest sandpit to explore, well-managed tourist access to local tribes and fewer potential health risks than elsewhere on the continent, Namibia is the perfect mixture of wildlife, culture and out of this world landscapes.

Travelling through this unique and abandoned country is possible in different ways. A self-drive holiday on largely gravel roads or flying in between destinations are both an option. This country is also worth discovering with an experienced guide. Exploring the unique wildlife in Etosha National Park, visiting a Himba village or cruising through the Hoanib desert and the Kunene Region. Each and every day the beauty of Namibia will surprise you.

The best time to visit Namibia is during wintertime – from July to October- when the temperatures are just above 20°C and the chance of rain is low. This is also the best time for wildlife viewing.

Zambia

This beautiful country is best known for the Victoria Falls and its mighty Zambezi River. The falls are the largest and widest in Africa. Yet there is more beauty to see and experience in Zambia. Are you looking for a holiday off the beaten track? Then the game reserves of Zambia are definitely recommended. A multi-day walking safari in South Luangwa is a unique experience, where you will face elephants, lions and other impressive wildlife. A visit to Liuwa Plains is also very special; this is where the second largest migration of zebras and wildebeests in Africa happens every year.

Traveling in Zambia is for the adventurous traveler looking for unique wilderness areas. Here you can best travel with a local guide or with short flights between the various destinations.

Zambia is best to visit in the months of April to October because there are prolonged rain showers from November to March that cause nuisance.

Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe is the ultimate destination for travelers interested in holidays combining luxury and (walking) safaris. Multiple National Parks such as Hwange and Mana Pools National Park contain an amazingly rich diversity of animals where besides the ‘Big Five’ many other species can be admired.

One of the most popular tourist attractions in Zimbabwe are the Victoria Falls.The falls are located along the Zambezi River that is located on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. Visit Zimbabwe between April and May for the most dramatic view of the Victoria Falls.

With mild temperatures, virtually no rain and a low malaria risk, the dry May to August are seen as the best time to visit Zimbabwe for game-viewing. A holiday in Zimbabwe can be easily combined with Botswana and Zambia.

Swaziland

The landlocked kingdom of Swaziland is surrounded on the north and south by South Africa, and on the east it is bordered by Mozambique. Most people travelling through South Africa include Swaziland in their itinerary as it is the ideal gateway between St.Lucia and the Kruger National Park. In Swaziland the friendly, traditional Swazis await you with their beautiful culture. It’s the place where you step back into the authentic African culture. Swaziland is also well-known for it’s forests, rivers, waterfalls and unique rock formations. We can recommend  discovering the beautiful nature of Swaziland where you can walk, cycle and ride a horse while being surrouned by wildlife.

Swaziland and its unique culture is a year-round treat, but if you’re there to see wildlife, the best time to visit is when dry winter conditions bring animals to the water holes, which is from May to September. Come in the Swazi summer, from October to April, for a landscape turned green by the rains and hot sun.

Mozambique

Everything about Mozambique gives you the perfect holiday feeling. Long coastlines with turquoise water where you can take beautiful dives, a fascinating mix of different cultures and delicious food at cozy food tents. Mozambique is the only country with Latin influences, which is reflected in the architecture, language and local food. Also for the traveler with interest in all kinds of languages and cultures Mozambique is the perfect fit.

Do you want to dive or snorkel with giant mantas and whale sharks? Then visit Tofo where there is a good chance that you will encounter these beautiful animals.

The best time to travel to Mozambique is during the dry season, when the weather is much warmer and more pleasant. The dry season in Mozambique falls in the winter months, from May to November.

Botswana

Experience the stunning beauty, the unimaginable vastness and the diverse wildlife of the best kept African secret – Botswana.

Parks and reserves have been established for the protection of the wildlife. Here, in the wilderness of Botswana, a pure Africa experience is waiting for you. It is important to be well prepared when visiting Botswana. You will be going to remote areas, accessible only by four-wheel drive, where water, petrol or food may not be available. You may often be driving on rough terrain, and through heavy sand, in conditions very different from those you are used to.

The best time to visit Botswana is during the dry season- in winter (May to August) and in the hot springtime months of September and October, as wildlife is most active and visible in this period. Most animals will be concentrating near rivers, pools and waterholes.

Mauritius

Whether you are going on a honeymoon or a relaxing family trip, Mauritius is the ultimate place to enjoy the tropical climate. This popular island with its azure blue water, swaying palms and sunny days is a true paradise. Visitors are welcomed with a smile by the genuine warmth and hospitality of the Mauritian people.

Located in the warm Indian Ocean, just off the coast of Africa, Mauritius is a combination of idyllic beaches, warm waters and spectacular scenery. Mauritius is almost entirely surrounded by coral reefs, being the perfect destination for snorkelers and divers to explore the magnificent wonders of the ocean.

With winters that remain warm and dry, and hot, humid summers, Mauritius is a year round holiday destination.
