South Africa in November

Johannesburg and the Highveld is hot by day, cool at night and receives regular rainfall often in the form of afternoon thunderstorms.

Cape Town and the Western Cape is hot by day, cooler at night, and dry.

The Kruger Park and surrounds is hot by day, warm at night, and dry.

  • November is an ideal time for beach holidays anywhere along the South African coast, though Durban and the KwaZulu-Natal coast to its north can be rather hot.
  • Game viewing in the Kruger Park and other reserves can be relatively challenging as animals are dispersed away from water sources and thick vegetation tends to reduce visibility. This is arguably compensated by the lush green condition of the bush, clearer skies (better for photography).
  • Many resident species come into breeding plumage during November, and this transitional month also usually heralds the arrival of large numbers of intra-African and Palaearctic migrants.
  • September-November is peak whale-viewing season in Hermanus and the Western Cape.
  • November is the start of the nesting season for loggerhead and leatherback turtles along the beaches of iSimangaliso, and turtle-tracking tours can be undertaken in the evening.
  • Accommodation in tourist areas is usually quiet in November, though it starts to fill up towards the end of the month.
