South Africa

The best time to visit Kruger National Park

Kruger National Parks climate can be described as subtropical as the summer days are hot and humid. The months receiving the highest level of rainfall are October to March, therefore, the best time to visit this region of South Africa is the dry winter season. Furthermore, if you are visiting this area to view wildlife, then doing so during the dry winter season is more rewarding. The fauna is sparser resulting in the animals being drawn out to waterholes to have a drink.

The city of Johannesburg experiences a warm and sunny climate, particularly during their summer months from October to April, where hot days are often followed with afternoon rain showers, finishing with cool evenings. The winter months from May to September, are filled with dry and sunny days followed by much colder nights. Usually temperatures in Johannesburg remain quite mild, which is a result of the city’s high elevation.
