There is no bad time to go on safari in the Kruger National Park. The experience does, however, change from month to month. In the summer months (October to March), it gets very hot. The verdant vistas are all the more spectacular because of the rains, but this means that the foliage is denser, water is more abundant and game is therefore trickier to see. There are lots of beautiful migratory birds during the summer months. While the daytime temperature in the winter months (May to September) is ideal, it does get a little chilly at night and in the early morning.
<p>Cape Town is a year-round destination. The summers are generally warm and dry, while winters tend to be wet and cool, the rains brought on by fierce north westerly gales. Neither season experiences extremes of temperature, thanks to prevailing winds. Summer (Nov-Mar) is the hottest with temperatures 20-40°C. Mid season (Apr, May, Sep, Oct) temps between 10-30°C. Winter (from June- Aug) is the low season with temps 0-25°C.</p>

As well as game drives, you can also head out on foot on a guided safari walk to get up close and personal with the bush, with guides on hand to identify animal tracks and spoor, plant life and any smaller creatures.
Today you will have an early morning game activity and lunch before heading back to Johannesburg in time for your Blue Train departure. Departing from Pretoria in the evening, you will journey south on the Blue Train for two nights in your own private cabin watching as the South African landscape passes you by. You will enjoy dinner and drinks in the evening and have time to relax on the observation deck, as well as stops along the way. On your second day you will stop off at the Kimberley Open Mine Museum where you will depart the train for a two and a half an hour excursion before jumping back on in time for lunch and later dinner before heading on towards Cape Town.
This morning you will have breakfast on the train and arrive into Cape Town train station where you will disembark the Blue Train and will be met and transferred to the Delaire Graff Estate in Stellenbosch. This afternoon your driver-guide will take you to the Waterford Wine Estate for a Vineyard Safari exploring the property and trying some of the wines on offer.
