Nerd game...starting from January, please post the prime safari spots for that given time of year...

Since there often seems to be some question about whether or not a particular game reserve is appropriate for the season, I thought it may be a good idea to post the months, starting with January, and the safari areas that are at or near their best in that given month.

Does anybody care to kick off January??? And if anybody else knows other nice places that are not mentioned, please feel free to add them to the list for that month.

To add to SusanLynne -

January is also good for the coastal cities and offshore islands at Kenya and Tanzania

Kenya - Mombassa; Malindi & Lamu Islands
Tanzania - Dar-es-Salam; Zanzibar, Pemba, Mnemba & Mafia Islands

- likely to be more humid than some other times of the year.
