Best Times To Travel South Africa

South Africa is a vast country with plenty of diversity ranging from city breaks to Cape Town to a safari in the North. With such variety our holiday experts are never more helpful in tailoring the perfect holiday for you. Further popular holiday activities that may affect the best time for you to travel to South Africa include world class water sports along the coastline on the Indian Ocean.

The seasons of South Africa are reversed to those experienced here in the UK and there really isn't a bad time to visit, although what you would like to do may effect which season is best for you. If a safari is on your must see list then the best time of year to travel to South Africa is during the dry season of June to September.

A visit to Cape Town is superb during the summer months of November to March whilst those looking to catch a glimpse of a whale on a whale watching tour will find the best success from June to December. Accommodation books up quickly during the South African school holidays from mid-December to the end of January so book early to avoid disappointment during these times.
