Indulge in the following African safaris on offer between April - Mid-May but remember that we can tailor make a safari to your needs.

Temperatures and conditions

During April to mid-May, Zambia, Malawi, and Zimbabwe all experience transitional weather as the wet season transitions to the dry season. Temperatures range from 15°C to 30°C (59°F to 86°F). Thunderstorms are sporadic but not as dramatic as earlier in the year yet they still give rise to some stunning sunrises and sunsets. The level of Lake Malawi is still relatively high as well.

More about Temperatures

The rains are tapering off which means there is still water everywhere. The lagoons are brimming with life and they are a great place to spend some time appreciating the various water birds. Thought the bush is still rather dense, the wildlife is still very much present and due to the lush green backdrop, the photographic opportunities are exceptional.

Highlights of this time of year

We are thrilled to re-open Luangwa River Camp in the South Luangwa National Park, as well as John’s Camp in Mana Pools for the new season. Its a great time to explore Mana Pools when there is still so much water and the famous 4 pools are still very full and our Classic Zimbabwe Safari is a fantastic way to make the most of this time of year. Over in Malawi, the beauty of this time of year radiates through all 3 of our properties which are open and in full swing.
