Even though this country is a year-round destination, May through September is the best time to visit South Africa. Wild animals are easier to spot during the dry season, so don't miss your chance to visit such famous parks as Kruger or Madikwe.
Winter is all about unbelievable marathons and fantastic hiking in Blyde River Canyon or Table Mountain. Nothing can beat the outdoor activities in such pleasant weather. But mind that the rain can take you by surprise in the south of the country.
Dreaming about a beach holiday of a lifetime? Find year-round sunshine on the KwaZulu-Natal coast. As for the Cape Town coast, it is close to perfection between November and March. Get out there and discover some exotic fruits like a wild medlar, mobola plum or marula.
