When to travel....depends on what you want to do.

The flowers up the West Coast are spectacular in August and September.

Game viewing is at is best late spring (September and October).

The southern right whales rendevous off our coasts from mid-June to the end of October.

The diving is best from April through September, and so is the surfing

River rafting is best in the Cape from July to October, and in KwaZulu-N from November to February. Mpumalanga and Limpopoare not so critical.

Hiking is best in spring and autumn, as summer can be too hot over most of the country. Be careful in the Drakensberg where summer thunderstorms can be dangerous, and snowfalls treacherous in winter. Wet winters in the Cape are not good for hiking.

October and November are a must for the birders, when the palaeoarctic migrants arrive around November and the intra-African migrants by mid-October.

Mid-summer has to be the best time to lounge around on the beaches, with everyone else. KwaZulu-Natal beaches are worth a visit in June -July for the sardine run and warm and sunny to boot!


And so for now.... happy travelling!

"May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of his hand"
