Where To Go On Safari In November

Late spring is a lovely time to go on safari: warm days are cooled down with dramatic afternoon thunderstorms, the bush starts to green and baby animals frolic on the savannah. Many safari destinations receive fewer visitors, which means even more exclusivity, giving you ample opportunity to unwind.

Greater Kruger safari in November

Early summer thunderstorms bring an end to the winter dryness and the bushveld loses its grey winter coat as it’s carpeted in fresh green. Most of the antelope give birth around this time and nursery herds of young impala gather together for safety as the local big cats and other predators make the most of this abundance to feed their own growing families. A November safari in the Greater Kruger occupies a comfortable niche between the dry winter and the humid heat of midsummer, ideal for tracking Kruger’s wildlife on foot. Continue exploring…

Cape Town & Garden Route to accompany your safari in November

The Garden Route blossoms in the South African spring, with something for everyone from budding safari guides to wine-lovers. The South African Marine Big Five are all at sea, but you needn’t be – the whale watching is excellent and the winelands scenery is worth toasting to. All roads lead to the epicurean capital of Cape Town and the rugged Cape Peninsula. Continue exploring…

The Zambezi River, Zambia & Zimbabwe

Low water levels in the Zambezi River reduce the force of Victoria Falls, but with less spray you can better appreciate their magnitude from both the Zimbabwean and Zambian sides. Island picnics, a dip in Devil’s Pool and canoeing safaris are low-water highlights, then trace the path of the river to Mana Pools or the Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia for a safari experience centred on the Zambezi in a rather different mood.

Liuwa Plains safari in November

The plains in the rain offer much more than the fun of jumping in sudden puddles. Flower-spangled savannah forms the backdrop for the best time to see Africa’s other wildebeest migration. With the rains mostly falling as brief, intense downpours, they won’t interfere with your plans, but you’ll get all the benefits of the season: very few fellow travellers, and dramatic electric storms rending the skies asunder.

Benguerra Island to end off your safari in November

Springtime is beach time, and the Bazaruto Archipelago can be added almost seamlessly to any Southern African safari and beach holiday in November. Balmy weather combined with warm, clear waters makes for superb sunbathing and swimming, as well as diving and snorkelling. Plus passing whale sharks give you an extra reason to don mask and flippers: a dip with the world’s biggest fish. Continue exploring…
