Holidaymakers keen to witness animals in their natural environment will welcome the advent of Africa’s dry season.
Traditionally May to October in Southern Africa and July to October for East Africa, the Big Five and friends tend to be easier to spot during this period as they congregate around water holes while an absence of long grass improves viewing chances.
