Weather and climate
South Africa is a year-round destination, with varying regional climates and wildlife opportunities.The best time to visit South Africa is from May to September, as the cooler winter months in the northern regions bring superb conditions for viewing big game. It can be rainy from November to February, but this is the best time to travel for birding, and temperatures remain warm at 22°C-33°C.
The dry season in Zimbabwe's national parks is from April to October and is prime game viewing time.However, travel from November through to March rewards those wanting to get off the beaten track and explore the country's rich cultural history, while birders in particular will be delighted by the presence of migratory birds. The rains fall between December and March. Victoria Falls are spectacular all year round.
