BEST TIME TO GO ON A WILDLIFE HOLIDAY
It is a good lesson to remember that, on wildlife holidays, it is the wildlife that calls the shots. They tell us when the best time to go on a wildlife holiday is. If there is a sudden change in weather, for example, you might find that the most reliable wildlife sightings are suddenly rare. Or vice versa. However, you can rely on the expert wildlife companies to be up front with you about the marvels that await. African safaris will never disappoint, rain or no rain. Bears will always come out for salmon. And gorillas will, hopefully, always thrive in the mist.
