REASONS NOT TO VISIT

South Africa safari holidays are often described as “best trip ever” because South Africa rolls out a stunning variety of experiences for travelers of all ages and tastes. South Africa reveals itself to the traveller through untamed flora and fauna, vast deserts as the Kalahari, pristine Indian Ocean beaches, sparkling coastal cities, private game reserves and world-class vineyards. Trekerie’s curated experts can craft a unique safari to see the Big 5 (leopard, lion, rhino, elephant and buffalo) in addition to the cheetah, wild dog, hippo, zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, hyena, antelope, buck, warthog, crocodile, monitor lizard, duiker, civet, baboon, and other monkey.

Trekerie will listen to your wishes and connect you with the best local expert in South Africa who will design a unique itinerary completely tailored to you.

Hot Air Balloon ride over Masai Mara

Glide over the Maasai Mara in a Hot Air Balloon

The quintessence of charm and magic is to glide over the vast plains and forests of the Maasai Mara in a hot air balloon. Listen to the sound of silence while your eyes wonder over herds of wildebeest and towers of girafes. Uninterrupted views and surprising stillness create an unforgettable memory during your South African safari.

Treehouse Night Out

Experience the glorious flaming sunset of the savanna from your luxury tree-house where you will be served drinks and a chic gourmet picnic dinner. Fall asleep to the ringing of cicadas and the trilling of night-birds – and perhaps even the roar of a distant lion – as you doze in the surprising luxury of a tree-house. Wake up refreshed with a once in a time yoga class or indulge yourself with a massage in your bush bedroom.

WEATHER IN south africa

A pride of lions relax in shade

Spring

August to mid-October. It is time to enjoy some of the best game viewing. Northern Cape and Western Cape are bloom with thousands of small plants that cover the semi-arid plains in an iridescent carpet of flowers.

Summer

Mid-October to mid-February. Hot, sunny weather – often with afternoon thunderstorms that clear quickly, leaving a warm, earthy, uniquely African smell in the air.

Western Cape, with its Mediterranean climate, is the opposite, with warm dry summers.

Our curated travel agent will help you craft the perfect customized itinerary to get the most out of your safari vacation during summer.

Amazing view of the sandy mountains in South Africa

Fall

Mid-February to April. Fall offers the best weather in some respects. Very little rain falls over the whole country, and it is warm but not too hot, getting colder as the season progresses.

In Cape Town, fall is fantastic, with hot sunny days and warm, balmy nights which many people spend outdoors.

Winter

May to July. It is time to enjoy some of the best game viewing. It’s a good idea to bring warm clothes to the higher-lying areas of the interior plateau, enjoying dry, sunny, crisp days and cold nights, sometimes with heavy frosts.

Western Cape gets most of its rain in winter.
