Why go to South Africa

South Africa is truly a world in one country. From grassy plains and bushveld teeming with elephant and lion, to soaring snow capped peaks of the Drakensburg; there is the floral kingdom and the pristine beaches of the Garden Route and then on to the Cape – home to penguins and seals, Robben Island and world Class wines. There is adventure and culture, solitude and frenzy; wild animal and friendly people; this is truly a land of great and immense beauty.

When to go to South Africa

South Africa has two different regions and two different rainfall patterns. In the Cape the Winter months of June, July and August are the rainy season whereas the rest of the country has summer rains. The best would be to determine what you would like to see. June, July and August would be the best time for the game reserve as the dry weather brings all the animals down to the waterholes. But you would not miss out if you came in September and October as this is when all the animals drop their young.

Many flock to the Cape during its warm summer months, but to visit this area in winter is also not a bad thing – there is something quite pleasing about warm fires, good wines and great food I the winter too. There are certain things that can only be experienced at certain times, such as the sardine run which attracts great sharks and whales and that is in May – July.

Namaqualand and its flower display is September and October. Hiking trails and walks would be September and October too. Whichever time you come, South Africa will not disappoint in any way.
