Hi Charlotte; Africa has 4 weather seasons: spring; summer; autumn and winter. However in these seasons - we have a dry season and a wet season. The wet season refers to the time of year when rains are expected to fall. The dry season is the opposite - not as much rain. This differs from country to country. You can check out our weather webpage for more information on seasons and weather patterns in the different countries of Africa that our overland trips travel through. Happy trails!
- Charlotte18 Sep 2011
why has Africa got two seasons instead of four? Thus dry and wet seasons.

Hi there! I'm hoping to do the 10 day trip from Nairobi to Dar Es Salaam on the 24 Apr. Because of work; I'm a bit restricted with my flights and have found an Emirates flight on the 21 Apr London to Nairobi and returning from Dar Es Salaam to London on the 3 May for GBP 662.29.

Hi there Ajay; the temperatures in Ghana varies very little between summer and winter because it is so close to the equator; but the rainy seasons occurs; from April to July and from September to November and they also have the "Harmattan"; a dry desert wind that blows from the northeast from December to March; lowering the humidity and creating very hot days and cold nights.

Hi; i'm currently thinking about a trip for late 2011. Type of accomadation doesn't bother me; I would prefer a forward-facing seat in a truck and would like to see Victoria Falls. As i'm a student I have a fairly limited budget. I would like to do/see as much as possible; preferably not exceeding 1500 GBP; if that is feasable. Any tour suggestions and information would be appreciated. Thankyou
