Botswana: July is peak season in Botswana, so come to see the Okavango Delta, Chobe and more. Wildlife viewing at this time can be extraordinary, as the game begins to concentrate around dwindling water holes or head for main water sources. It’s a good month for wild dogs.
Madagascar: It’s peak season in Madagascar. A great time for all wildlife, though book in good time as there are limited good places to stay and they get quickly booked up for July.
Malawi: July is the dry season in Malawi so a great time for wildlife. It’s the coolest month (though still nice) so good for anyone who doesn’t want it to be too hot.
Rwanda & Uganda: It’s dry season here again, so July is good for general wildlife and gorilla or chimp trekking.
Mozambique: See humpback whales in the south from about June to September.
South Africa & Swaziland: July is winter in Kruger and the days are dry and warm, with cold evenings and mornings. It’s a great time for wildlife viewing here as well as in KwaZulu Natal’s Hluhluwe-Umfolozi, and Madikwe in the northwest. July and August are two of the best months for the Kalahari.
Tanzania & Kenya: The Serengeti, the Masai Mara, Amboseli, Selous … all these great East African reserves and more are at their peak from July to October. In July the wildebeest migration is in central and northern Serengeti, Tanzania.
Zambia: It’s the dry season in Zambia so South Luangwa, Kafue, Lower Zambezi and all the excellent reserves here in peak season for superb wildlife viewing from now until roughly the end of October.
Brazil: July is a great month for spotting wild jaguars in the Pantanal (June to October). Combine the Pantanal with the Amazon for an incredible wildlife experience. Good time for hyacinth macaws, and even maned wolves in a particular camp.
Ecuador & Galapagos Islands: The Galapagos Islands offer a year-round wildlife spectacle which is hard to beat. July is the drier, cooler season and a lovely month to visit unless you get seasick as it can be a bit windy. Dolphins and whales are often seen, especially near Fernandina and Isabela. Flightless cormorants nest on Fernandina.
Peru: July is a generally good month for most experiences in Peru.
Madagascar: The tropical beaches of Nosy Be and other areas are definitely worth considering.
Malawi: Consider a lakeside break with lots of watersports or just space to chill out. Lake Malawi has some really gorgeous beach lodges, some on tiny islands. July and August are cooler than other months, but it’s still very warm.
Mauritius: Mauritius is good most of the year, with May to December being the best months. July is one of the cooler months but it’s still in the mid 20°s. Excellent beaches and many superb hotels.
Mozambique: The beaches of Bazaruto archipelago and the Quirimbas Archipelago as well as the mainland are all good in July. July and August are two of the cooler months, but not by much.
South Africa: The eastern region of KwaZulu Natal has stunning coastline. Try rustic cabins at Kosi Bay or luxury lodges of Kosi Forest or Thonga Beach.
Tanzania & Kenya: The Indian Ocean islands and mainland coastline are lovely at this time. Consider Zanzibar, Mafia, Diani Beach or Pemba amongst others.
Brazil: July is a popular month to visit the beaches of Salvador and the north east.
South Africa: Head for Mpumalanga region, west of Kruger, to see sights like the Blyde River Canyon, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and God’s Window on the so-called Panorama Route. This links nicely with wildlife viewing in Kruger. The Cape is cooler with some rain, but it’s still a great place to come for sightseeing in Cape Town, the Garden Route and Winelands.
Brazil: Maybe come to Brazil to explore Rio and Iguazu Falls, and combine this with some wildlife in the Pantanal or Amazon.
Ecuador: July can be a little wetter than other months, but it’s rarely too bad, so still a pleasant time to visit Ecuador. Visit Indian markets and colonial cities such as Cuenca, or hike in the Andes or take in the Galapagos.
Peru: Come and explore Peru’s Incan and colonial history and find out about modern life in Cusco, the Sacred Valley, Arequipa, at Lake Titicaca …
Madagascar: Madagascar is a great place for hiking as well as seeing the wildlife and enjoying great beaches of course.
Morocco: Whilst July is definitely very hot, it is a good time to climb Mount Toubkal in the High Atlas (May to October).
South Africa: The Cape region is cooling now but always good to visit. KwaZulu Natal is hot and sunny, so walks, cycling, horse riding and other activities would be excellent. Combine with some beach time or a safari for an exciting African adventure.
Ecuador: Try hiking in the Andes, exploring the Amazon, taking a train ride through the Andes, and maybe combine all this with time in the Galapagos Islands.
Peru: It’s a good month to be in Peru. Consider a lovely cultural trek.
