African climate is generally pleasant throughout the year in the sub-saharan region – with warm to hot days, and cool to warm nights. January to March are the peak rainy summer months in most of the tropics, however, hidden gems in this seasonality can offer you with secret settings to explore for rarer sights in the intermediate season. April and May are spring time with less rain and the wildlife begins to congregate along perennial water sources. African winter months occur from May to September offering great visibility of game on the dry plains. For specialized journeys such as the Great Migration in East Africa
the patterns are largely determined by rainfall and resultant game patterns developing from one season to the next.
