South Africa in July_Whale Watching Whales begin to migrate along the coast of South Africa in July

Johannesburg and the Highveld are mild to cool by day, cold at night, and dry.

Cape Town and the Western Cape are warm by day, cool at night, and receive regular rainfall.

  • The Kruger Park and its surroundings are hot by day, cool at night, and dry.
    August is an ideal time for beach holidays on the Indian Ocean coastline of KwaZulu-Natal coast, which tends to be temperate to hot over the nominal winter months, and very dry. Conditions on the coast of the Eastern and Western Cape are less predictable.
  • Game viewing in the Kruger Park and other reserves tends to be exceptional towards the end of the dry season, as animals congregate close to perennial water sources and the undergrowth clears to improve visibility making it the perfect time for a Kruger safari.
  • August usually heralds the start of the whale-viewing season in Hermanus and the Western Cape.
    Accommodation in tourist areas is usually very quiet in August.
  • Taking everything into account, August is one of the best months to visit South Africa, particularly if your main interest is safaris rather than beaches.
