    South Africa

    South Africa

    In  South Africa temperatures are around 24°C with higher temperatures in Durban. Cape Town sees very little to no rainfall, but you are likely to experience afternoon showers in Johannesburg and in many of the parks.  The showers are predictable so they’re unlikely to affect your trip – a good time for a holiday in South Africa.

    Some of our popular itineraries are:


    Cape Town, Blue Train and Safari

    Ethiopia

    Ethiopia

    Ethiopia is shaped by its regal past and over a millennium of Christianity. Such history has resulted in phenomenal architectural sites from the medieval site at Lalibela, the baroque-style royal residences at Gondar and the cultural terraces of the Konso highlands.

    February is a great month to visit Ethiopia thanks to the warm, dry weather. Temperatures average 24°C and rainfall 35 mm all month depending on the area you are in. This is one of the busiest times to visit, particularly for safaris and wildlife spotting.

    Some of our popular itineraries are:

    Best of Ethiopia

    Classic Ethiopia

    Rwanda

    Rwanda

    While elephants, chimpanzees and forest buffalo are big attractions, the stars of the show are the endangered mountain gorillas. February is one of the best times to see gorillas in Rwanda because it’s in the middle of dry season and the gorillas can be found beneath the trees heavy with fruit. It’s the experience of a lifetime for wildlife enthusiasts to trek and be among these graceful giants in their natural habitat.

    Some of our popular itineraries are:

    Chimps and Gorillas

    Gorillas in the Wild
