Glorious Green Season

September 7, 2014  By: Gretchen

Tarangire greeWe love the ‘green season’ in Africa! Crowds are sparse, discounts abound, the animals have abundant food and water, and the landscape is incredibly verdant. What’s not to like?

My family and I are headed to Tanzania in March/April, which is their green season. I’m especially fond of seeing Tarangire National Park during this time of the year – it’s a feast for the eyes with its beautiful canopy of trees. The huge number of elephants in the park enjoy feasting on the lush vegetation, and the bird life is alive with color.

Yes – ‘green season’ does mean there is rain, however it typically is in the form of showers that are sporadic. You’ll still see lots of sun! Abundant food sources mean that many baby animals are born around this time. Being in the Serengeti during the calving season is absolutely incredible!

Want to visit one of our safari destinations during the green season? Don’t forget that the timing of the season depends on the country. Check out our monthly specials for some green season savings, or reach out to one of our safari specialists to see what other green season specials we have tucked away for you!

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

Pick a Destination

Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of? Visit our destination pages to narrow your choices down, browse our safari types to get a sense of the activities and styles available, or talk with a Journey Specialist to hone in on the areas that will deliver the journey of your imagination.
