Where To Go In Africa In August

Travelling on Safari in August

August is the most popular month for visitors in East and Southern Africa. Throughout Africa, every country has exceptional wildlife viewing in this month. Anywhere you go, you really cannot go wrong. The brilliant game viewing opportunities also coincide with many countries' school summer holidays. You can expect visitor numbers to be high in most lodges and family friendly camps are normally booked well in advance.

The decision of where to go depends on the style of safari you are after – and ultimately, your budget. In East Africa, the Great Migration continues in the Masai Mara in Kenya and can also be seen in the northern parts of the Serengeti, becoming a genuine contender for the finest safari experience on the continent. Gorilla trekking in Rwanda is perfect, as the days are clear. In Southern Africa, August is, quite simply, ridiculously good. Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia, specifically, offer what we believe are world-class safaris. Temperatures are cooling down in Mauritius, but Mozambique and the Seychelles are still offering lovely warm temperatures.
