San Pedro Claver Church, Cartagena, Colombia

Our summer months coincide with a mini dry season in Colombia. It is a time for festivities, including the Festival of Kites in Villa de Leyva and Medellin’s colourful Flower Festival. Packed with cultural sites, mountains, jungles and a beautiful coastline, Colombia is a firm favourite with Steppes’ clients.

South Africa

Rhino Family, South Africa

Clear skies and crisp sunshine dominate in the north, as it is the driest month. It is low season in July, so parks are generally quiet and it is easier to spot wildlife around the sparse waterholes. Get involved in Rhino Conservation Week at Marataba Safari Lodge where you can take part in monitoring, darting, notching and DNA collection.
