South Africa has a climate like Southern California or the Mediterranean. It is beautiful year-round.


Summer Months


Our summer months are from the end of August to April with the hottest period from October to February. Average day temperatures in summer range from a minimum of 15 °C (59 °F) to a maximum of 28 °C (82.4 °F), although temperatures can get as high as 36 °C ( 96.8 °F) in some areas. One should expect rain storms or drizzle on any of these days. It hardly ever rains throughout the day and generally the rain storms last for only an hour or so.


Winter Months


Our winter is from May to July with the coldest period being towards the end of June and July. In winter, early morning temperatures can drop below 5 °C (41 °F) and well below zero at night in some places. Maximum average day temperatures in winter are a respectable 19 °C (66.2 °F  to 23 °C (73.4 °F) Some areas like Durban in Kwa-Zulu Natal get as hot as 26 °C (78.8 °F) in winter, perfect for a day at the beach. A subtropical location and a high interior plateau are responsible for South Africa's temperate conditions so appreciated by visitors.
