Best time to go to Africa?

The weather very much depends on where you end up going. Are you looking for any particular type of voluteer work? I know of work with children, orphan animals, conservation, horses and health projects. I know of some in Mozambique and in South Africa. I can find out about Tazania too if you like. The weather in the north of South Africa is pretty warm enven in winter but not unpleasent. September is our spring so that brings big changes and we can have hot or cold days.

Capetown has a mederterainian type climate and winters are cold and wet. There are many volunteer programs there too. If you like wildlife and the bush then our summer is much more productive with the migratory birds arriving and the young animals being born.

South Africa is a year-round destination, and the best time to visit depends on your priorities.

The best time to go on safari is in the winter months (May to August). The bush is at its thinnest, so game viewing is easier, and the temperatures are mild (maximum 20 to 23°C). There's very little winter rainfall in the north.

This depends on your specific needs and requirements. Interests range from Africa’s spectacular wildlife to the wide variety of birds that occur in Africa at different times of the year. Other interest are botany, culture and natural phenomena (such as the sardine run on the east coast of South Africa or the migration of wildebeest in Serengeti and Kenya). Many guests use their favorite activity as the foundation and build their holiday around these activities such as fly-fishing, diving, kayaking, photography or horse riding.

Rush of the African Baison is the best time to travel there and it is due in June and July. Most of the predators are around and you can smell real africa this way.

The best time to visit South Africa is depending upon for which kind of activity you are planning to visit South Africa. South Africa is famous for their wildlife parks. The best time to visit most wildlife parks is from May to September.
