South Africa has been favored by nature with one of the most temperate climates on the African continent, and can be visited comfortably any time for general tourism. Winter (June to September) is cooler and drier, and ideal for hiking and outdoor pursuits. Because vegetation is less dense, and thirsty animals congregate around water sources, winter is also the best time for wildlife-watching.
Summer (late November to March) brings the wind, and lots of it ! The wind tends to fill in mid / late morning and then again ealry afternoon. It is quite rare to get many days without at least 4bft but mostly up around 30-35 knots in the afternoons. South Africa is one of the most wind reliable locations at this time of year around the Southern Cape. During the period air tempreture hovers around 28 - 30c, just perfect!
