Botswana, South Africa & Zambia

How is the weather in January and February on this tour? (My husband and I read that it can be hot, humid and rainy.)
Thanks, in advance,

    There are no departures of this tour in Jan & Feb, the first one isn't until 8 April in 2023.

    Jan & Feb are the peak of the rainy season and usually considered the worst time to go. During January and February, the rains can be continuous for days. The best time to visit is from May to September, during the Dry season and winter

    Yes, it can be hot and humid in SA and Kruger in Jan & Feb. Jan & Feb are considered the worst months to visit Kruger and Sabi Sands.

  • Hi Alan, Many thanks for your prompt and helpful reply. I appreciate it very much. Marilyn

  • No problem.

    I hope you noticed I tried to answer both your posts in a single response, and may not have done so well. The weather is a bit different for both the tours you listed and the weather in Livingstone and Botswana's Okavango Delta on B,SA,Z, is somewhat different than what you'll find in Cape Town and the Kruger area on Elegant Adventure.

  • Alan, you answered my question well! :)
