Where To Go In Africa In April

Travelling on Safari in April

The great summer starts winding down in Africa in April and the year catches its breath before winter. In southern Africa, safari destinations like the Kruger, Botswana and Zimbabwe emerge after months of heavy rain. Cloaked in green, they offer lovely scenery, superb birdwatching, and good game viewing.

Black-maned Kalahari lions enjoy a glut of new-born prey, and a termite population explosion draws raptors and other migratory birds to feast on this seasonal banquet. This is the time of the zebra migration in the Kalahari desert in Botswana. South Africa still enjoys lovely sunny days with only a hint of crispness in the early mornings, while the Indian Ocean islands offer travellers hot days on postcard-perfect beaches.

Africa in April is a quieter experience and a great time for visitors who want to avoid peak-season crowds and prices. For those who don’t mind some rain, Kenya is fabulous in April. This is their secret season, when prices are less expensive, many lodges are closed and visitors are few …. But – the weather is just as glorious in between showers, and the wildlife is second to none – but you have it pretty much to yourselves!
