Seasons to travel

Kruger National Park and Johannesburg have severe storms and high humidity. Rain brings rich greens and makes it difficult to find wildlife, but birds are the most visible.

Summers are warm and dry in the western half. It is an ideal time to visit Cape Town and enjoy the Garden Route. As hotels and parks are full across the country, you need to plan ahead when traveling in summer.

Autumn is the best time to explore South Africa. The temperature is still about 18 degrees during the day, and the summer clouds are disappearing. The dry season begins in the east, and large animal observations are available in Kruger National Park. The night is cool and the temperature drops to about 7 degrees in May.

In winter, along the Western Cape and Cape Town, it will rain and cool to a maximum temperature of about 15 degrees and a minimum temperature of about 7 degrees. Although it sometimes snows in the highlands, storms are the worst weather in most areas. Other areas are sunny and dry with similar temperatures. At the animal sanctuary, the animals gather on the remaining shore and become easy to observe.

You can see whales along the garden route in July.

In spring, the temperature during the day rises to about 24oC and heats up. On the arid west coast, the flowers are colored like kaleidoscopes. In addition to the flowers, fauna and breed of livestock, it is an interesting time to observe animals.

In addition, it is the best whale watching season along the garden route. The rainy season begins in the east. Spring is high season and popular attractions like the land of wine are not full.
