South Africa is a year-round destination and the climate varies across the country!
There is the Mediterranean Western Cape, the sub-tropical and arid Eastern Cape and the sub-tropical Kruger regions. They all have hot summers (December - March), and the coldest months are July and August. The Western Cape has a winter rainfall while the Eastern Cape and Kruger regions have summer rainfall.
Summer is the perfect time to visit Cape Town and the Garden Route, while the winter brings mild, dry temperatures to the tropical north east coast making it perfect time to visit the Kruger National Park and KwaZulu-Natal. However, each season brings something different to enjoy, you just need to pack accordingly
