The dry season in the Western Cape tends to be extremely hot and crowded by tourists. Safari at this time of a year is the best, since animals flock around the limited water sources, making it easier to see them. This is also the good time to go for a swim, since the ocean is not that stormy. However, you might consider to choose the first or last months of dry season, since late spring and early autumn are more comfortable and offer more scenic natural views.
