When is the best time to visit South Africa?

|Comments are Off

South Africa is one of the most beautiful countries in the world showcasing breathtaking scenery, a rich wildlife population, many diverse cultures and a comfortable climate.

South Africa has two very different rainfall patterns. In the Western Cape the rainy season is during winter – June, July and August. The remainder of the country has summer rains.

So, when is the best time to visit South Africa? We rather recommend determining what you would like to see when deciding on a timeframe to come visit South Africa.

Seasons in South Africa:-
Spring: starts September to November
Summer: starts December to February
Autumn: starts March to May
Winter: starts June to August

June, July and August are the best months for game viewing on Safari as the dry weather attracts the animals to the waterholes. On the other hand, during September and October, the animals drop their young.

The best beach weather is late Spring to early Autumn. Mid-summer offers the hottest weather, but it is also a very busy time with inland holidaymakers visiting the beautiful coastline.

Namaqualand flowers in the Western and Northern Cape are best seen in spring – September to November.

Whale watching season is from June to the end of October.

The best seasons for hiking are spring and autumn when the weather is mildest.

Whether you are discovering the many gourmet restaurants; art & nightlife scenes, white beaches of Cape Town; enjoying a typical local braai (barbecue) in the Soweto township; browsing the bustling Indian markets in Durban; or sampling some of the world’s finest wines around the picturesque Cape Winelands – whichever time you come, South Africa will not disappoint in any way!
