Rains arrive in southern Africa and it’s very hot. In Botswana, the landscape turns green, animals disperse, it is the shoulder season. In the Kruger area, expect afternoon thundershowers.
It’s also shoulder season in Tanzania and Kenya which means it is less crowded, less costly, but with some showers – in short a period of transition.
The Indian Ocean islands are getting hotter, but you can also expect more showers. It continues to be a good time for wildlife viewing and beach holidays in Madagascar.
Oman is perfect for winter sun.
The rainy days are mostly gone in Sierra Leone, and over the next few months it is the best time to visit this West African country.
