where to go in africa

East Africa: This is dry season in East Africa so January is a great time to come on a wildlife safari to this region. Consider Kenya’s Masai Mara, or go for southern Serengeti in Tanzania to stand a chance of seeing the annual migration. This is calving time so great for seeing newborns, with predators never far away. Also consider Selous in southern Tanzania, and gorilla trekking in Uganda or Rwanda.

Southern Africa: It is the green (rainy) season in the southern African countries of Botswana and Zambia from about late December to March/April. You’ll find excellent birding opportunities, plus great value on lodges at this time. In Zambia’s South Luangwa boat safaris are also offered due to fewer tracks being open.

Ecuador & Galapagos Islands: The Galapagos Islands offer a year-round wildlife spectacle which is hard to beat. Combine this with time to explore the mainland to see the wildlife of the Amazonian rainforest plus the Andean regions with Andean markets and haciendas.

Costa Rica: This is one of the drier months in Costa Rica (December to about May) and an excellent time to explore the nature, wildlife and beaches of this tiny but special country.

India & Nepal: It’s dry and it’s not ridiculously hot, so from November until about March is a perfect time to come and explore India and Nepal’s wildlife reserves, including the tiger reserves of Kanha, Bandhavgarh and Ranthambore amongst others.

East Africa: January is a great time for the beaches of the Kenyan and Tanzanian coast, and the outlying Indian Ocean islands such as Lamu, Zanzibar, Pemba, Mafia, Chole …

Southern Africa: The Cape region around Cape Town and the Garden Route offers a wonderful Mediterranean-type climate from about October to March. Relax on beaches, enjoy fine food and gorgeous scenery.

Costa Rica: January is one of the drier months in Costa Rica (December to about May) and an excellent time to come and chill out on either the Pacific or Atlantic coastlines. Costa Rica has some really great places to stay, and if you decide you need more action that the beach can provide, there are lots of other activities to be found here, from zip-lining to horse riding, walking, wildlife viewing and climbing volcanoes!

where to go in asia

India: Kerala and Goa are the places to go for some winter sun in India. There are some lovely hotels and lodges, the weather in January is in the mid 20’s, and the beaches and food are great.

Victoria Falls: is a sight worth seeing any time of year, but January is quite good as it’s not at peak flow (roughly February to May) nor at its lowest ebb (about October to November).

India, Nepal & Burma: January is a good month for sightseeing in India and Nepal and also in Burma. It’s dry, though not the warmest month.

where to go in africa

South Africa: The Cape region has great weather at this time and even KwaZulu Natal is pretty good, so walks, cycling, horse riding and other activities would be excellent here in January. Combine with some beach time or a safari for an exciting African adventure.

Tanzania and Kenya: How about a real challenge? Try summiting Kilimanjaro or Mount Kenya. Or if that’s a bit too much, talk to us about other hikes (perhaps in the Ngorongoro region or Kenya’s Loita Hills), or maybe a Maasai-guided walking safari.

Ecuador: How about hiking in the Andes, exploring the Amazon, taking a train ride through the country, and perhaps ending up in the Galapagos Islands. Not bad for a bit of adventure in January?
