Best Time to Travel

What is the best time to travel to South Africa? This question is often asked and has no easy answer as the country is so diverse. Therefore, a number of factors may influence the answer to this question.

Best Time to Travel to South Africa:

Let us consider a few options:  If one is really into our magical South African beaches and good beach weather, our coastline offers a variety of options. The east coast of South Africa has a sub-tropical climate and is mild to warm year round with short occasional thundershowers. However, it may get a little humid for some around January – February. But then just pack your bags and travel to Cape Town for hot, but drier weather during this time of year.  Winters on the South African west coast, on the other hand, are mild to cool with longer wet spells as a result of its winter rainfall climate, but glorious sunny days separate the rainy ones.

Game viewing is at its best during the winter months in South Africa, as well as into our early summer, typically from June through November, but some record-breaking sightings have been recorded during summer months with sightings of all of the Big Five in one morning!

From the above information and that on the WEATHER page, you will find very few factors keeping you from visiting South Africa any time of the year.

So the only factor you have to consider is when you can break away from your work / family / home to embark on your wildest dream come true! Best time to travel to South Africa? Why not today!
