Where To Go On Safari In March

This is a pivotal time in the seasonal calendar, and an African safari in March can have a strange end-of-days feel to it – not of foreboding, but of imminent change.

Northern Tanzania safari in March

Don’t miss the climax of the wildebeest birthing season in the southern Serengeti – wobbly legs and bobbing heads start to turn northwards in search of fresh grazing as March draws to a close.

As luck would have it, two of Tanzania’s finest safari destinations, Lake Manyara & Tarangire National Parks, lie side by side in the Great Rift Valley. March sees the end of the dry season, with falling lake levels concentrating food sources – and no flamingo can resist being in the pink of health. Less graceful but equally compelling, the giants of Tarangire are also on the move, with huge herds of elephant making a time-honoured trek to the remaining water points in the parks.

Think balmy beach days with cooler nights warmed by bonfires and world-famous Cape brandy. Continue exploring…
