Where To Go In Africa In December

Travelling on Safari in December

No matter the weather during December, the festive season is always a hugely popular time to visit Eastern and Southern Africa. Eastern Africa is in its second (and final) month of the short rainy season. Even with the possibility of rain, the beach destinations are still very busy because of the holidays.

However, any rain that does fall in these areas, tends to be in short and sporadic showers and therefore doesn't dampen the festive spirit too much. Southern Africa on the other hand is gripped by high temperatures, high humidity levels and is often prone to tropical thunderstorms. 

December is a wonderful time of year to be on safari. The intimacy of the lodges make it a truly memorable experience over the festive period and the staff are extra-attentive to your needs. A number of lodges can also cater for large family and friend groups meaning that no-one gets left behind. One thing is for certain, it will be a safari that you will never forget!

Kenya's Maasai Mara, Laikipia, Lewa, Tsavo and Meru, and Tanzania’s Serengeti and Ngorongoro are simply superb.
