Where is it?

What is the best time of year to go?
Summer (November to March): the days can get quite warm (up to 28-32 degrees on average) but it is a dry heat and the parks get summer rainfall, normally in the form of thunder storms. These rarely affect activities and are usually in the evening.
Autumn (April to May): days can still be warm but the evenings cool down. Average day time temperature 22-28 degrees. Evenings 10-15 degrees.
Winter (June to August): days are warm (temperatures in the mid-twenties) evenings and early mornings very cold with average early morning temperatures 5-12 degrees. It very rarely rains at this time when the bush is golden and dry.
Spring (September, October): days start getting hotter, evenings and mornings could still be crisp but not as cold. A very slim chance of rain. On occasion we can get very hot days.
The best time to visit Cape Town is during the Southern Hemisphere summer months. Winter can be cold and windy in this lovely city.
How to get there
The safari starts in Johannesburg at the Oliver Tambo International Airport and finishes in Cape Town at the international airport.
