March remains hot in Namibia, although the temperature typically tends to fall slightly with day time temperatures sitting around 27 degrees centigrade. There are fewer tourists and quieter lodges and National Parks, game remains dispersed and can hide in the higher grasses more easily but the birding is good at this time.
South Africa is moving into Autumn in March, the Cape in the south of the country is still warm and dry while the North is warm but can experience some afternoon thunderstorms. Birds that have spent the summer in Southern Africa will start moving north with the approaching change of seasons.
The great migration in the Serengeti will start to move north towards the western corridor and the Grumeti River with their newborn calves in tow. The long rains start towards the end of the month and dark dramatic skies and thunder storms are likely in the afternoon.
