When To Travel

Africa & Madagascar in June

Best for:

Safaris in southern Africa, especially the Kruger area in South Africa, because the climate is cooler and vegetation is sparser.

In Botswana, the flood waters may have reached the Okavango Delta and it's a rewarding season for game viewing. In both Botswana and Zambia, you can have a “peak season” safari experience at mid-season rates.

The wildebeest are massing in Tanzania’s western Serengeti corridor. It’s truly spectacular – go!

Mauritius and Mozambique are typically hot and sunny with temperatures in the low 20s - and are wonderful in combination with a safari in South Africa. The islands of the Seychelles are warmer - in the high 20s – and dry.

Madagascar is marvelous before the school holiday crowds.

Namibia is dry and comfortable, so June is a good time for a camping or self-drive tour.

In East Africa, the rains are mostly over, the landscape is lush and green and many lodges in Kenya offer low season rates before the summer peak.

Also consider:

Winter has arrived in the Cape. It will still be generally warm - the temperature averages around 18ºC - but very changeable, with a mixture of sunny weather, overcast skies and showers.

Avoid

It’s the rainy season in Sierra Leone and travel difficult.

Latin America in June

Another great month for festivals, as June sees Peru welcome the Festival of the Sun, or Inti Raimi. Celebrate with the Peruvians in Cusco whilst taking time out to visit the World Heritage site of Machu Picchu. Inti Raimi is very popular so please do book early.
