When to Go

This region of South Africa is popular throughout the year; however some activities may be better booked in summer, or winter. There is a selection of exciting activities that can be booked at various times of year, depending on game viewing, landscape and weather.

Mid-year is winter in South Africa and temperatures in the Lowveld can drop below 10 degrees Celsius, while daytime temperatures are mild in the mid-20s. Game viewing in the Kruger is often best at this time of year, and outdoor activities may be more enjoyable in the mild weather.

Summer months can bring heavy rainfall, while the hot temperatures reaching the mid-40s can appeal to some sun-lovers! Birdlife is abundant and the presence of water makes the surroundings beautifully green. Early mornings and evenings are pleasantly warm for sunrise and sunset activities.

What to Pack

The climate in the Kruger lowveld brings hot summer months between October and April when the rainfall and temperature are high. The dry winter months begin in May and carry on until October, during which time the weather is mild during the day with temperatures averaging mid-high 20s, while very cold in the evenings and early mornings.

  • Throughout the year, we recommend packing lightweight, neutral-coloured clothing with short sleeves
  • Bring sun protection in the form of sunblock, sun hats, and glasses.
  • Scarfs, jackets and gloves are needed for early mornings on game drive, especially in winter.
  • Comfortable walking shoes as well as open sandals for when the weather is hot.
  • Bring along cameras, binoculars and recording gadgets to keep a record of the many wildlife sightings.
