the best places to go in november
The Indian Ocean Islands provide a welcome getaway in November and provide plenty of opportunity to explore the underwater world. In the Seychelles water visibility regularly reaches over 30 metres in November while in Mauritius November is typically fairly dry; perfect for hitting the beach.
It is the short rainy season on mainland Africa making it harder work on safari. The likes of Botswana, Zimbabwe and Namibia still provide great game viewing as the rains have not yet started, East Africa is however less fortunate. This does mean however that you may be able to secure some shoulder season deals for destinations such as Kenya and Tanzania and seeing as the rains are often only short afternoon showers anyway, it is still a great time to go!
Even the gorillas will not be in hiding during this rainy month – yes, it will be slightly more slippery underfoot, however in Uganda you may be able to secure discounted gorilla permits and it can even make for better photography as bedraggled gorillas pose for you in the rain…!
