Africa’s Eden has three distinct ‘seasons’:

  • High Season
  • Green Season
  • Shoulder Season

High Season

The traditional high season runs from May to September, which is winter in the destination. Many travellers choose this period as it coincides with northern hemisphere summer holidays and offers more dependable game viewing. Due to low rains, plants are less dense, making it easier to see wildlife. Animals also gather around watering holes more often at this time of year.
