Is a safari in late November a bad idea?

Is a safari in late November a bad idea? It seems like this is the only time of the year we can take time off and a safari is high on our agenda. Which country/area would offer the best gameviewing and good lodges/camps for this time of year? Or should we seriously consider waiting until sometime next year instead?

Several years aso we did a 3 week safari from mid Nov thru early Dec in Kenya and Tanzania. The weather was wonderful and few insects. As far as game viewing goes, we saw them all and in good numbers.

Karen, were did you stay during your safari? Did you use lodges or camps?
Did you manage to see the migration?

November is a good time to go to east Africa. The short rains will be just starting but it should be mostly dry.
A bit of rain is a welcome relief from the hot dry season. I've been to east Africa in Sept-Oct and also March-April.
Sept-Oct was very dry and March-April was pretty wet. I think I liked the wet a little better as it was more of an adventure having to go bush when roads were impassable!
