When is the best time to gorilla tracking
All Year Round! But it also really depends on the type of animals you wish to see and your budget. Certain reserves have good game viewing all year round but others will have particularly good elephant sightings or other migratory animals at different times of the year. It is generally felt that the African winter (Jan to March and July – October) is the best time to go on safari, There is no rain, the grass is dry and vegetation sparse making game viewing easier. It is also the time when animals are on the move looking for food and water. In Kenya and Tanzania, you have the memorable opportunity of witnessing the migration of over two million animals. However for budget travelers (April to June and November to Mid December) is the low season so you can take advantage of the special offers and sometimes even pay half the price of high seasons.
