The Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra create quintessential safari images as the vast herds arrive in the central Serengeti and Western Corridor.
Without the threat of thunder storms June through to October represents the best time of year to climb Kilimanjaro or hike the Rwenzori Mountains in Uganda. An amazing physical adventure that can be a great start to a more relaxing safari and time on the pearl white beaches in Zanzibar.
Experiencing Victoria Falls at any time of year is impressive, but in June the water levels are slightly lower so the view of the falls is unobstructed by spray. This also offers a unique opportunity for a swim in Devils falls.
