Holidays in South Africa

An incredibly diverse region, holidays in South Africa and beyond are defined by breathtaking landscapes. Spanning the arid stretch of the Kalahari Desert, to the grassy wetlands of the Okavango Delta; the soaring red sand dunes of Sossusvlei, to the dynamic cityscapes of captivating Cape Town. All of which coexist alongside some of the planet’s most prolific wildlife, best discovered on safari as you see elephants, lions, leopards, hippos, rhinos and buffaloes in spectacular national parks such as Kruger, Chobe and Etosha.

As a result, South Africa holidays and excursions to its neighbouring countries present endless possibility. So whether you’re looking to sample world-famous wines in South Africa’s Winelands; befriend black-maned lions in Botswana’s Central Kalahari Game Reserve; or hike through the rugged depths of Namibia’s Fish River Canyon – our job is to find an itinerary that’s perfect for you.

When to go

The climate in South Africa ranges from desert and semi-desert in the north west of the country to sub-tropical on the eastern coastline. The rainy season for most of the country is in the summer, except in the Western Cape where the rains come in the winter. Rainfall in the Eastern Cape is distributed evenly throughout the year. Winter temperatures hover around zero, summers can be very hot, in excess of 35° Celsius (95°F) in some places.

The South African Weather Service provides up-to-date weather information, forecasts and satellite imaging. SAWS has also implemented a network of high-resolution Doppler radars to improve the quality of its forecasts.
