Safari Season: When and Where to Go with Akili Travel


The call of the wild, the thrill of adventure, and the opportunity to witness nature’s most magnificent creatures in their natural habitat – are just a few reasons why a safari is a dream vacation for many. And if you’re considering embarking on this incredible journey, there’s no better way to do it than with Akili Travel. In this blog post, we’ll explore the world of safaris, when the best time to go is, and where Akili Travel can take you for an unforgettable wildlife experience.

When to Go on Safari

One of the most crucial factors to consider when planning a safari is the timing. The best time to go on a safari can vary depending on the region you choose to visit and the type of wildlife you want to see. Here are some general guidelines:

  1. Dry Season: Most travelers prefer to go on safari during the dry season, which typically occurs during the winter months in the Southern Hemisphere and the summer months in the Northern Hemisphere. During this time, vegetation is sparse, and animals gather around water sources, making it easier to spot them.
  2. Migration Seasons: If witnessing the Great Migration in East Africa is on your bucket list, plan your safari between July and September when millions of wildebeests and zebras cross the Serengeti in Tanzania into the Maasai Mara in Kenya.
  3. Bird Watching: Bird enthusiasts should visit during the wet season when many migratory bird species arrive, or during specific birding festivals.
  4. Baby Animals: If you’re keen on seeing adorable baby animals, plan your safari during the birthing season, which varies depending on the location but is typically during the wet season.
