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.

South Africa

South Africa has wild, remote deserts, fertile valleys, world-class vineyards, vibrant modern cities, and exceptional game parks. The Kruger and Sabi Sand are the jewel in South Africa’s safari crown and offer some of the best game viewing in Africa while there are a host of other smaller parks and reserves in the Northern Provinces and Eastern Cape to explore.

A Step Back in Time


Egypt has seduced travellers for millennia, situated in the North East corner of the continent it is intersected by the great Nile River which was once the most important trade route between the Mediterranean and East Africa. The ancient passage of people and produce introduced a wealth of religions, culture and cuisine that we find in Egypt today.
