Travelling in the Low Season
Destinations traditionally have a peak season and low season for travel and most visitors will be keen to choose the best time to go, either for better weather or easier wildlife sightings. These traditional peaks don't however mean that what is viewed as low season isn't a viable — or even good time to visit. While low season in some destinations is best avoided as it means you may encounter monsoons or hurricanes, for much of Africa it may just mean the wildlife is harder to spot in the abundance of new foliage and tall grasses. However, there are often advantages to travelling in what has been commonly coined as the 'green season' opposed to low season.
