April

April

April continues the long rainy season and despite the highest humidity, the south and south-eastern parts of the Serengeti generally have wide open plains with poor tree coverage at all times so game viewing can still be good. Wildebeest started to return to the hills in the north in April as the young are now a few months old.

In April, the wildlife is making the most of the abundant water supplies from the heavy rains but can be challenging to spot with the flourishing foliage.

Kavati and Mahale Mountains remain difficult to access so if you are looking to go on a chimp trek consider traveling in June instead. Similarly, Selous and Rhuara are likely to be closed due to arrival only being possible using bush runways. Also avoid Zanzibar, which is at its wettest due to the Kusi monsoon winds bringing in high levels of precipitation.
