When is the best time to visit South Africa?

Famous for its sunshine and relatively low rainfall, South Africa is a fantastic holiday destination which can be visited throughout the year.When planning a holiday to South Africa you should bear in mind that as its vast country with mountains and the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Indian Ocean on the other side and the climate varies from region to region. The best month to visit depends on where you want to go and what activities you want to do.

South Africa is in the southern hemisphere which means that the seasons are opposite to those of Europe and North America. The summer in South Africa is characterised by hot, sunny weather, often with dramatic thunderstorms in the afternoons, whilst the winter tends to be warm, dry, clear days with cool or cold evenings. Cape Town is the exception as it has a Mediterranean climate - it experiences dry summers and rain in winter months from May-July.
