Summertime in South Africa’s Cape region – dynamic Cape Town, stunning winelands and the rugged and spectacular Garden Route.
From the lush tea plantations in the hill country to the cities of the ancient Kingdoms, this is the dry season and the best time to visit.
The best time to visit this tiny country, with its astonishing wealth of bio-diversity, is during the ‘drier’ season from December through to March. It rains less in the summer when this Garden of Eden offers wonderful wildlife viewing, great beaches and a warm, tropical climate.
Home to the second largest coral reef on the planet, December and February are the most popular months to scuba dive in one of nature’s most colourful and spectacular marine environments. Why not head in land as well in search of the elusive jaguar or some remarkable Mayan ruins.
