There’s no easy way to define November – some years, the conditions remain dry and therefore viewing of predators remains steady. However, this is not typical. The rains usually begin again around the middle of the month, and with their arrival, there are yet more dramatic scenes in the form of storms. Colours once again begin to “pop”, with greenery once again bursting into life and replacing the dry and arid landscapes.
Generally, when the rains come, the predators are once again more difficult to see, and some safari experiences may even be cancelled. Lots of baby animals are born around this time of year, which unfortunately leads predators to seek them out – but such is the reality of the circle of life in full swing.
Dramatic skies and storms can be found throughout the month and it’s a great time for fans of striking photography. However, you might find yourself missing out on your safari because they are often rained out. In spite of the rain, water levels are usually low, and so you won’t be able to partake in water activities, either.
If you love baby animals, December is a wonderful month, with the signs of new life visible everywhere. The young grow quickly, with the need to be strong to escape the predators which are constantly looming in watch. Thankfully, they are less camouflaged at this time of year, but on the downside, they can hide in bush land which is once again growing, which can also make them more difficult to spot.
