BEST TIME TO TRAVEL
South Africa has different areas which are better at different times. If you want to go on safari then peak season is South Africas dry time between April – October before the rains arrive. If you want to go to the beach, then Cape Town and the Garden Route is best during summer between October and April each year. The beaches around Kwazulu Natal can still be visited in the winter season so if you want to go to the beach after your safari, Kwazulu Natal would be the best place to combine it with or you can fly out of South Africa and go to either Mozambique or Mauritius. Lake Malawi is a good inland fresh water alternative to combine with a safari in the winter months.
