The best time to visit destinations: travel inspiration

The experts here at Natural World Safaris have worked hard to compile the best safaris for each month so we can get you to the right place at the time you wish to travel, to maximise your wildlife viewing opportunities; whether you are looking to go away in the winter for some sun, fancy escaping the summer to the icy polar regions, or just have a few weeks off work to fill.

When to go if you want to experience…

Untouched Antarctica Landscape: The season for visiting Antarctica starts in mid-October. Be the first guests to the continent after the winter and can enjoy the pristine unblemished views.

Seeing the sun rise from Mt Kinabalu: The dry season from end of March to beginning of October is the best time to make the ascent up Mount Kinabalu as the humidity is more comfortable and there is less chance of being caught out in the rain.

Pantanal wetlands: June to November – the dry season is the optimum time for wildlife in the Pantanal as activity tends to concentrate in areas of diminishing water.

Swimming with humpbacks: Our exclusive Reunion Island safari allows you to swim with humpbacks and hike Reunions wild interior. Best time is between August and September.
