African BowHunting and Trophy Hunt Checklist

When to Travel

People invariably ask, “When is the best time to visit Africa?” It is a difficult question to answer. In southern Africa – although the seasons are the exact reverse from those in the U.S. – the climate is temperate and sunny year round. However, each time of the year has its special attractions, and some general guidelines can be given.

March and April – The land is green and refreshingly devoid of other tourists. Temperature is never terribly hot, rarely exceeding 90 degrees F. Humidity is low and mornings and evenings are cool.

May through September – Dry winter season when the grasses are low and the animals can be seen clearly. Average daytime temperatures are 65-70 degrees F, and nights and mornings can be quite cool. Temperatures begin to warm in September.

October and November – A delightful time of the year – it is springtime. Days are warmer with lows of 65 degrees F and highs in the 90s. Short rains in November only freshen the country.

December through February – These are the summer months. Although it is also the rainy season – and the rains can be heavy – they are usually brief. The moisture leaves the country revitalized. Average temperatures are in the 90 degrees F range.
