Spring and Fall are the best times to visit for a safari in South Africa: we plan around the best weather and wildlife activity.
In early autumn days are getting cooler and the rains have ended. Grass dies down and tree cover starts to drop.
In the Spring season the grass has not yet begun to grow and nights will gradually get warmer while days are dry, warm and sunny.
Both seasons are the best times to visit South Africa: low grass and tree cover, comfortable temperatures, low chance of rain, minimal bugs and dust.
We will close out these 10 day safaris with a 2 night stay at a small lodge where we will have exclusive use of an underground (water level) photography and wildlife observation hide. With 24 hour access to the hide, we will not miss a minute of the Greater Kruger Park big 5 wildlife activity. We start at our tree house lodge (yes, we own the lodge!) to experience Kruger national Park and the surrounding area then three nights in the famous Sabi Sands reserve for leopards. Our safaris are a delight for photographers wanting a variety of wildlife images, close encounters with leopards, and the unique perspective of a hide at water level at a watering hole. Non Photographers also welcome and will enjoy the length and amount of wildlife encounters throughout this safari.
Africa Wild Safaris is owned by photographer Gregory Sweeney and his wife Karen. Together they own a small lodge on a nature conservancy which becomes the home base for their photography safaris. While on safari Gregory is a teacher ans well as a host and guide. Guests are return with memories of once in a lifetime wildlife encounters.
