Don’t miss the Pyramids of Giza and the Valley of Kings in Egypt and be in awe at the ancient civilisations mythology and culture. Make sure you visit the devils pool in Victoria Falls in Zambia and bathe amongst the beautiful waterfalls.

When to go to Africa for Safaris
Africa is warm and sunny throughout most of the year but certain countries and even regions within a country experience a variety of climates.
When to go on a Southern Africa safari: The winter dry season in Southern Africa is between May and October and this is best for spotting the wildlife as gather at waterholes. The summer wet season is between December and March, a hot and sometimes humid period with short bursts of rain.
When to go on an East Africa safari: Most Kenya safari destinations are at their best between January and the end of March when the climate is mild and dry. However, for the Masai Mara migration you'll need to go between mid-August and late October when the herds have returned. General safaris in Tanzania peak during the June to October dry season but the best time to go to Tanzania for the Serengeti wildebeest migration is between November and August.
