When to Go
Summer is from December to February and
can be uncomfortably hot, especially in the lowveld, but the best time
to be in Cape Town. Although the summers are hot, the
cold Atlantic which surrounds the Cape Peninsula is not for swimming
but rather sun-bathing. If you enjoy swimming in the ocean, rather
than lazing in the sun, you should be in Durban where the water is
Spring is from September through to December and is the best time to
view the wild flowers of the West Coast, north of Cape Town.
Winter is mild and is from June to August.
This would be the best time for wildlife viewing in the Kruger National
Highlights not to Miss
This is where you will find Cape Town, one of the most beautiful cities
in the world. The area is dominated by mountains (Table Mountain in particular
which reaches 1000 m) with sheer cliffs and surrounded by mountain walks,
vineyards and beaches.
There are three main towns which create the winelands. They are
Paarl, Stellenbosch and Franshhoek which are surrounded by endless wine
farms and rolling mountain ranges. On this route you can go on wine tours
and taste the wines of South Africa, which are comparable to the best
in the world.
This route stretches along the ocean from Cape Town through
Elizabeth. Along this route you will find many interesting and
the most beautiful towns, with views across the Atlantic and green rolling
in the background. Hermanus is where you can spot the whales from June
to November when they come to the shores.
Other towns along this garden road include Mosselbay, Knysna, Plettenberg
Bay and the Tsitsikamma Forest,
each with its own unique attractions.
Kruger National Park and Sabi Sands
The Kruger Park is one of the biggest, oldest and best wildlife parks
in the world. There is a great variety of animals and with the road infrastructure
not viewing any animals is unlikely. With a lower budget you can get
the wilderness experience without the luxuries of the private game reserves,
of which the Sabi Sands is the most infamous. Private wildlife reserves
offer luxury accommodation and game drives which take you into the heart
of the wilderness. These game drives are well organised and the lodges
offer gourmet meals, you will definitely not leave starving.
