1. Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe isn’t dubbed Africa’s Adventure Capital for no reason. From safaris to water sports on the Zambezi River, to the breathtaking view of one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world, you will be treated to a trip like no other.

August is the perfect time to visit the “smoke that thunders” as the area is in the dry season with low water levels yet brilliant flow.

2. Lake Volta, Ghana

If you’re not a fan of the beach or game drives, you might consider visiting Lake Volta as a great alternative.

It is the largest man-made reservoir in the world in terms of area and generates a significant amount of the country’s electricity.

To put its size into perspective, Lake Volta covers nearly 4% of Ghana’s land area. You can fish to your heart’s content or take advantage of the excellent variety of exotic and luxurious hotels near the lake.

3. Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town, the mother city of South Africa offers something for everyone. Its beaches are inviting, the parks and Table Mountain are enticing, and it has a treasure trove of critically acclaimed restaurants, hotels, and shopping centers (including the V&A Waterfront) to keep everyone busy.

August also sees the start of the whale migration through the Garden Route, while there are also a wide variety of art tours, wineries and other historical sites to explore.

While you are there be sure to visit Robben Island which was home to Nelson Mandela for 18 years.

4. Bazaruto Archipelago, Mozambique

The Bazaruto Archipelago in Mozambique is a chain of six islands stretching out into the Indian Ocean. You can relax, get away and explore at your leisure. From snorkeling to see the exquisite marine life, sipping on a sunset on the beach, or going on an adventure along the coast, Mozambique offers an incredible fun-filled adventure to entertain the whole family.

There’s something to be said for staying in a gorgeous beach villa and watching the sun go down in the evening.

5. Masai Mara, Kenya

No trip to Africa would be complete without experiencing the Great Wildebeest Migration through the internationally acclaimed Masai Mara Safari Park.

Even though the number of visitors and vehicles is highest at this time of year, it is for good reason given the high density of predators in the area and the frequent occurrences of predator-prey interactions.

Contemplating this great crossing is definitely a unique experience never to be forgotten.

Let Petal Maps be your trusty guide in August and unlock a new way to explore the world around you.
