Thinking of getting away for the holidays? Whether you’re giving back for the season of giving or looking for to escape the cold, there’s no place quite like a festive safari to Africa.
1.) The Weather
If you’re hoping to dodge the cold of the northern hemisphere, Africa is where you want to be. Some countries have have a wet and a dry season, while others have the fall, winter, spring, and summer. Depending on where you choose to travel, December and January are entering a wet season, so that environment is luscious with growth.
2.) The Beach
And on the other hand, you might be entering a summer season! Perfect for sprawling out on a beach in Southern Africa and dining on delicious seafood.
3.) The Wildlife
Additionally, much of the wildlife in the bush will be lively and getting ready to mate. Birds migrating back after winter will be filling the skies, while zebras and antelope are dining on the fresh grass.
4.) The Season of Giving
Give back during this season of giving by donating to or volunteering at a charity or conservancy in the area. A few of our favorites are:

5.) The Tradition
There’s something so special about being out in the bush over the holidays. Lasting bonds and memories come out of travel any time of year, but celebrating together in a picturesque or new place offers a special experience that you’ll never forget. We can help ensure that this time of year is what you want it to be.
