Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

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.

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.

Itinerary

Supplying you with the best of South Africa, this trip takes in the three must-see areas for excellent game viewing, food, drink, culture and scenery. We have curated this trip which we think is ideal for a first-time trip to South Africa, staying in the best areas and properties, as well as including some of the best experiences to make it an unforgettable adventure.

  1. Fly into Johannesburg

  2. Days 1-4: Sabi Sands Game Reserve

    Start your holiday in the world-renowned Sabi Sands Game Reserve for some incredible game viewing in a beautiful lodge. On arrival into Johannesburg you will collect your bags and check in for your short flight to the Greater Kruger area. On arrival into the airstrip you will be met and transferred via game vehicle to the exclusive Lion Sands Game Reserve, a private reserve in the Sabi Sands. You will spend three nights in a luxury lodge with all game activities, food and drink included. Every morning you will wake early and after a hot drink and snack you will meet your guide before setting off on a morning game activity. Your guide will be on hand to find some incredible sightings, from elephant and rhino, to lion and leopard and much more. Ask as many questions as you like and enjoy learning about the bush. For the more adventurous, head out on foot with your guide to take in the bush at a much slower pace.

    Accommodation: Lion Sands River Lodge (3 nights)

  3. Days 4-6: The Winelands

    After an exhilarating few days you will be transferred back to the airstrip for your flight to Cape Town via Johannesburg. On arrival into Cape Town you will be met and transferred to the stunning mountainous region of the Winelands where you will stay in a beautiful Cape Dutch property for the next two nights with breakfast included. On your first full day in the Winelands, enjoy a leisurely hike in the Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve before heading to Stellenbosch for lunch (included). After lunch you will take a tour of the Waterford Estate for a Vineyard Safari and chocolate and wine tasting for the perfect insight to what the Winelands are all about.

    Accommodation: Babylonstoren (2 nights)

  4. Days 6-8: Cape Town & the Western Cape

    Your final days are spent in Cape Town; colourful, cosmopolitan and full of culture, this city is a must see on any trip to South Africa. You will be collected from your hotel in the Winelands and transferred by vehicle to the V&A Waterfront where you will spend the next two nights with breakfast included. On your first day in the city you will be met by your walking guide who will take you on a fantastic walking tour of Cape Town, learning about the interesting history as you go. After stopping for lunch (included) you will continue exploring the city with a trip up Table Mountain and a scenic drive.

    The next morning after breakfast you will be collected from your hotel by your driver-guide and taken on a Cape Peninsula tour towards the Cape of Good Hope, and if the weather permits, along Chapman's Peak drive. Enjoy a seafood lunch at a local restaurant before visiting the Penguin colony at Boulders Beach and ending the day with a walk through the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. For a completely exhilarating way to explore the Peninsula, head out on a Sidecar tour instead (optional).
