November is the best time to visit Cape Town, South African. There’s more than 8 hours of sunshine a day, the weather is warm, and school holidays have not yet started, so beaches and other attractions like Table Mountain, Cape Point and Boulders Beach's endangered African penguin colony, won’t yet be crowded. In November, there’s also a chance of spotting some of the last late-season whales off the coast. This aerial view of Llandudno is a prominent landmark overlooking the harbour at Hout Bay. An unusual feature is that sand has been blown up it by the wind, causing a dune-like feature. This has been popular with local residents to surf down it on polished boards or sheets.

November is a great time to experience a crowd-free Kenya safari. As good as the Masai Mara is in it's prime months, from August to October, the reserve is choc-o-bloc in terms of visitors. Here, an elephant walks across the open plains of the Masai Mara National Reserve in Talek, Kenya. The east African country covers around 580,000 square kilometers and is synonymous with the safari, boasting some of the finest natural parks and wildlife conservancies on the continent with potential for seeing many species of wildlife including the Big Five: the Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Rhinoceros and Cape Buffalo.

The Mara's resident wildlife, which does not move with the herds of migrating wildebeest and zebra, is naturally beautiful and awe-inspiring, year-round. Constant Mara dwellers include elephants, big cats, and giraffe. November is a diverse and rewarding time to book your next safari in Kenya. Here you can see a few cheetahs in the Massai Mara National Reserve.
