Travel in and around:
South Africa is bordered on the north by Botswana, Namibia and Zimbabwe, and on the north-east by Swaziland and Mozambique. This made the country an ideal starting point if planning an multi-country safari tour in Southern Africa.

Best Game Watching and Vacation Months:
The northern regions are best appreciated during winter from May to September. The temperatures are moderate, the bush is dry and less thick and the wildlife watching is excellent. This is where the Kruger National Park is ideally positioned in South Africa, and offers very good game watching from November to May, and then from June to August.

The southern parts of South Africa, are pleasing during summer from October to March. The days are hot and sunny, and the Cape Town weather from December to March are the absolute best. The Cape Garden Route is one of the best holiday places to be in the summer months.

The best time to see the flowers of the Northern Cape's Namaqualand is in our spring (September).

Whales begin show along the Cape coast from September onwards, and peaking towards end of October

Note of Interest: The small Cape coastal village of Hermanus is considered to be one of the best places in the world to see the Southern Right whales from the shoreline, as they come annually to this protected bay.
