2. Best Time to Travel
South Africa’s weather varies by region. The best time to go depends on what you’re planning to do and what part of the country you’re visiting. If you’re going on safari, the best time to visit wildlife parks in South Africa is during the May to September dry season, when animals congregate around waterholes and rivers and the temps are cooler. The high season for the mild coastal areas (i.e. Cape Town) is the summer months, from December to March. But if you don’t like piping hot temperatures, consider a visit in April or November, during the shoulder season.
