South Africa is an all year round destination. There are however
certain regions which are more popular at different times. The
northern regions are good destinations in the winter months
as the game-viewing is at its best and the temperatures are
very mild (maximum 20-23ºC). There is very little winter
rainfall in the north. The southern regions are summer destinations
with low summer rainfall and temperatures reaching 28-30ºC
or higher on beautiful days.
