During the rainy season, the days are punctuated by sudden and unpredictable showers. Spectacular storms can easily give way to beautiful sunny weather. The nights are often cool and the days warm, but not often hot. Photographers will appreciate the beautiful lights of this period and the green surroundings. Many species give birth during this period; however the fauna is less visible in the tall grass, and more dispersed because water is more abundant. Many side roads turn to mud, making travel more difficult. Often the journey can take a turn and become a true African adventure! The main advantage of traveling during this season is that there are far fewer people and vehicles, significantly reducing the cost at most accommodation. On the coast, it is important to first make sure that your hotel will be open, especially in April-May, when the rainy season is the strongest, and many hotels close.
