Africa & Madagascar in July

Best for:

The southern Africa winter offers superb game viewing in KrugerBotswana and Zambia.

The cool, dry weather makes this an excellent time for travelling in Namibia and KwaZulu Natal.

With the arrival of the flood waters in the Okavango Delta, July is a wonderful month for exploring the waterways in a mokoro.

This is prime game viewing time in Tanzania and Kenya: the migrating herds are on the move north, towards the Mara River. Mobile tented camps provide optimal flexibility for following the herds – and range from the comfortable to the frankly luxurious.

The weather is dry and lovely in Uganda and Rwanda, ideal for a safari and gorilla tracking.

Mauritius and Mozambique are warm and sunny. It is hotter further north, in the Seychelles, the Zanzibar Archipelago and on the Kenya Coast.

Also consider:

Madagascar can be distinctly cool in the highlands, but the weather is generally dry. Humpback whales can usually be observed off the east coast by the beginning of July.


The rains in Sierra Leone are at their heaviest.

Latin America in July

As the south of the continent becomes blanketed in snow, July is a great month to visit the largest wetlands in the world, Brazil’s Pantanal. Combine a few nights in the Pantanal with some time in Rio or relaxing on the beach at one of Brazils’ world class coastal resorts.
