I am considering travelling to southern Africa (on the Four Country Classic tour to South Africa, Namibia, Botswana) next year. Right now I am thinking March/April, but I was wondering whether or not this is a good time of year to go, or whether I should delay my trip to a better time.
More specifically, I was concerned about the climate (wet vs. dry, hot vs. cold) and any affects that this had on road conditions/travel times and potential for wildlife viewing...crowds (when do the locals have their vacation time and do they frequent the areas visited by the tour)...amount of daylight (on long travel days, do we end up arriving after dark).
Any help or comments would be appreciated. Thanks!
