Southern Africa 4×4 for All Seasons

Southern Africa 4×4 for all seasons because I having travelled southern Africa extensively over the last three decades, I can honestly say that there is no must see season in Africa. Each season has a special touch and reason to travel. I have added some highlights of what not to miss and assist with your planning with a 12 month a year travel program in mind. We have also added some specials to encourage our adventurers to seek more than what you will find on Google and the 4×4 travel forums.

Hi Season Time Periods

Do not avoid these areas. Plan in advance and make the essential bookings ( Kruger, Chobe, Okavango, Kgalagadi, Kafue, Etosha )

Best Season will depend where you want to go and what you want to experience. Southern Africa truly has something exciting for everyone 12 months a year
