East Africa: The long rains don’t generally reach east Africa until about mid-late March, so most of this month is still great for wildlife safaris in Kenya and Tanzania. The herds of the wildebeest migration are still in Tanzania’s southern Serengeti and there are lots of young and predators around.
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. In Botswana it’s still green season so many lodges are still offering a good price.
Ecuador & Galapagos Islands: The Galapagos Islands offer a year-round wildlife spectacle which is hard to beat. In March marine iguanas are nesting on Fernandina, and great frigatebirds start mating on Genovesa and San Cristobal. 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: March is one of the very best months for India and Nepal’s wildlife reserves, including the tiger reserves of Kanha, Bandhavgarh and Ranthambore amongst others. It’s hot and the grasses have died down so it’s easier to see wildlife. April and May are even better for wildlife here, however it’s far too hot for most people to cope with.
East Africa: Early to mid-March is still a good 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.
Brazil: It’s hot and wet in Brazil in March, so maybe head for the beaches of Rio and the Costa Verde for some winter sun?
Costa Rica: March is a great time to come to Costa Rica as it is one of the drier months (December to about May). Chill out on either the Pacific or Atlantic coastlines and stay in a lovely hotel or lodge. 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!
India: If you are fine with relatively high temperatures, consider Kerala and Goa for a beach holiday. Average temperatures tend to be in the mid-30s, but can go higher.
Burma: Burma’s dry season is from roughly October to May, so you could head here for a little sightseeing and some relaxation on Ngapali Beach.
South 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.
Victoria Falls: is a sight worth seeing any time of year, but March is peak flow so if you want to see the full force of the Zambezi as it crashes over the rift, this is the month to come.
Costa Rica: March 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!
Ecuador: March is a pleasant time to visit Ecuador whether you want to visit Indian markets and colonial cities such as Cuenca, or hike in the Andes or take in the Galapagos.
India, Nepal, Bhutan & Burma: March is a good month for sightseeing in India and Nepal and also in Bhutan and Burma. It’s dry and warm and the flowers are blooming.
South Africa: The Cape region has great weather in March, and KwaZulu Natal is hot (though a bit rainy too), so walks, cycling, horse riding and other activities would be excellent. 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.
Costa Rica: March is one of the drier months in Costa Rica (December to about May) and it’s great for lots of activities from zip-lining to horse riding, walking, wildlife viewing and climbing volcanoes!
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.
India, Nepal: Take to the hills on an Annapurna trek in Nepal, or perhaps explore the authentic Nila region in northern Kerala.
Bhutan & Burma: Try some trekking in Burma and Bhutan. It’s the dry season so a perfect time for this. Birdlife and flowers are lovely at this time.
