When is the best time to visit South Africa?

  • It’s important to take activities into account instead of weather when planning a South African holiday. If you’re planning on going on safari, it’s best to visit during the dry winter months of May to October. Game viewing is outstanding during this period as the foliage is much less and wildlife will congregate around waterholes in order to stay hydrated. If you want to spend some time relaxing on one of South Africa’s sun-kissed beaches, then a visit during the hot summer months of November to March is ideal.
