Winter edition of TRAVEL AFRICA out now!

Come rain or shine! We explore the seasonal changes in some of southern Africa's major attractions, to emphasise the importance of considered planning for your next safari. While Emma Gregg takes to Zimbabwe's Mana Pools on foot (with her heart in her mouth!), Sarah Gilbert picks the top five of Mozambique's picturesque isles; plus we profile the most dramatic images of animals when they are hunting, taken from Nature's Best Photography Africa Awards last year.
Throughout Africa you’ll discover unexpected delights, with or without the Big Five. So pick your season carefully, do your research and off you go!
Delve in and have a closer look… and subscribe to the magazine to ensure you never miss an issue!
