When is the best time to travel Southern Africa?
Southern Africa is a year-round destination as different regions are spectacular at different times.
Winter months are between May and September. These months are often popular for game viewing, as it is dry and the wildlife is much easier to see and it is also cooler.
In summer, the temperatures can reach between 30 and 40 °C. But in many countries, summer is the best time to visit beautiful beaches and coastal resorts. Summer often coincides with the rainy season, resulting in lush, green countryside and lovely scenery.
