November sees the arrival of the rains in Southern Africa. The thunder and lightning can be dramatic. It tends not to rain for long periods, rather a short sharp shower which can (usually) be dodged. The skies, sunsets and sun rises at this time of year are spectacular and in our opinion worth the odd soaking! If you’re lucky the flamingo will be arriving in Makgadikgadi.
November can be hot, humid and wet in the mysterious topical rain forests of Uganda and Rwanda. The dramatic rain-forested mountains of the region also count volcanoes, several primate species and incredible birdlife among their inhabitants.
