The Best Time to Go on Safari in Africa by Month

Best Time to Go on Safari in Africa

Since moving to South Africa, going on safari has become one of my favorite things to do. From South Africa to Kenya and beyond, the continent has such raw, natural beauty. And Africa has way more diversity than you might think!

Far from a one size fits all experience, you can choose the best safari experience in Africa for you and your travel style.

I’ve been lucky enough to explore the African bush a few times and experience some of the best safari destinations in Africa. I absolutely adore interacting nature this way and seeing animals in their natural habitats.

Of course, if you’re a shutterbug like yours truly, an African safari is a must. You’ll be traveling through some of the most beautiful landscapes on earth. African safari photography will take your snaps to the next lev...

Under the waves on World Wildlife Day

The UN marks World Wildlife Day each year on 3 March. It is an opportunity to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants, and to encourage people around the globe to think about what they can do – big or small – to have a positive impact.

This year the theme for World Wildlife Day is “Life below water: for people and planet”. I’m really excited about this because it casts a spotlight on species we often forget about.

Best Budget Destinations in Africa

When traveling to a new destination, figuring out much to budget for activities, food, and transportation can be a little tricky. When I first started exploring Africa, I wasn’t sure how much to budget for different activities, transportation, accommodation and other costs of travel.

Depending on where you live, your flight may be a bit more than other destinations, but you’ll be spending less once you arrive if you plan ahead.

Ready to start your African adventure? Here’s are some of the best budget destinations in Africa!

Top 5 places to visit in North Malawi

Malawi is currently fast emerging as a hot destination in Africa thanks, in no small part to the transformations of its wildlife and safari experiences currently underway. But those developments are focussed on two wildlife reserves in the south of the country and one in the central area. The country’s southern region has a host of additional, easily accessed, attractions and has therefore become the focus of the majority of its tourist visitors. It’s time, therefore, to focus on the area of the country that might be in danger of being forgotten, but is actually home to some of Malawi’s greatest attractions, and is hugely rewarding to those who venture there – North Malawi. Given the country’s relatively small size, the North is still straightforward to access...
