Best time to visit Africa


Africa is a very special destination both culturally, but especially in terms of natural wealth. Traveling in all nine provinces, you will discover a unique cultural mix, which combines the traditions, language, and cuisine of three continents: Africa, Asia, and Europe.

But the Rainbow Nation is proud of other assets, which turn a trip to Africa into an unforgettable experience:

  • Creatures, ranging from bees to giant white rhinos;
  • Accommodation options, where you can choose from rustic cottages to luxury hotels;
  • The landscape in a continuous change.
  • A trip to Africa is the best opportunity to try a series of outdoor activities. Because they depend on the weather, we thought it would be helpful to have a short travel guide to help you choose the best suitable travel periods.

    1. Safari

    Undoubtedly, the most well-known and appreciated activity that you must try in South Africa is the safari. Kruger and Kgalagadi, some of the most famous nature reserves, offer the opportunity to observe lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos, and many other wild animals in their natural habitat.

    The winter months, respectively from March to October, are the best for safaris.

    2. Whale Watching

    Nature lovers, and especially those who want to admire whales in their natural habitat, are invited to visit Africa between June and November when they can be easily seen on the southwest coast. Those who want such an experience have two alternatives "Whale Route" or a cruise.

    The first option, the "Whale Route", is an experience dedicated mainly to families. This route, which starts from Betty's Bay and crosses the cities of Kleinmond, Hermanus, Pringle Bay, Stanford to Gansbaai, offers the best locations for whale watching.

    3. Winelands

    These vineyards located in the west of the country are famous for producing some of the most popular wines in the world. During this trip, you will have wine tastings, tours in which you will see how wine is produced, exceptional cuisine, and magnificent landscapes.

    The best time to visit these enchanting wine lands is in winter. Although it is the rainy season, this period offers a lot of sunny days.

    And to fully benefit from this experience, we recommend you plan your vacation between October and May, this being the best travel period for this region.
