Where To Go On Safari In July

As it’s generally cooler and drier than other times of year, an African safari in July is understandably a popular option, and the best-known destinations can become a little busy. Careful planning will reveal rewarding locations that are a little off the map, and very far indeed from the madding crowd.

Northern Kenya safari in July

July is a good time to wave fondly at the Masai Mara and pay a visit to our friends in the north instead. The private conservancies on which lodges like Sasaab, Saruni Samburu and Saruni Rhino are situated here retain a sense of exclusivity year-round, and you’ll get to see things not likely down south: the Samburu Special Five, and vistas without vehicles.

Western Serengeti safari in July

Every step feels like a mile when every log could be a crocodile, and during an African safari in July, the Great Wildebeest Migration reaches the toothsome tollgate that is the Grumeti River. Wide-open savannah views in the Western Corridor and river-crossing action: from June to August, the western Serengeti is at its absolute best. Continue exploring…

Mahale safari in July

For noisy primates you won’t mind spending time with, include Tanzania’s Mahale Mountains National Park in your African safari in July. As the forest vegetation begins to thin, chimpanzee are easier to see, and trekking with them becomes even more fascinating. Mahale is ideally situated for combining with the western Serengeti or northern Kenya. Continue exploring…

Sossusvlei safari in July

For dunes in July, head to Sossusvlei. Yes, you’ll be reaching the summit of the shifting, sinuous sand hills in peak season, but that’s because Namibia’s deserts are best enjoyed in winter. Cooler days are great for activities, while cold, clear nights (from May to September) promise out-of-this-world stargazing. Continue exploring…

South Luangwa safari in July

Inaccessible when flooded, South Luangwa opens up in the winter dry season. This is one of Africa’s prime walking-safari destinations, so lace up between June and October, put your best foot forward and enjoy golden grasslands, blue skies, and superb sunsets. Continue exploring…
