Overview

South Africa

A passionate traveler is always looking forward to an exhilarating experience, so for all those adventurous souls a trip to South Africa is a must. It is a complex country that is still in the process of defining its post-apartheid identity. Along with its natural resources the country undoubtedly possesses an abundance of energy but needs to identify the future path of progress. Tourists have been returning to South Africa because they simply admire the natural beauty of the place. Being located on the southern tip of Africa and bordered by Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Swaziland and Lesotho, South Africa is home to widely varying and stunning landscapes. 

South Africa does not need a special or peak season to be visited; one can comfortably enjoy the country at any time of the year. Winters that begin from June and end in September are cooler, drier and the most ideal time for hiking and outdoor pursuits. The country has a great wildlife that can be best watched during this period of the year. Though if you want to see the vast expanse of the Northern Cape that has a beautiful carpet of wildflowers, the right time is during spring season. So whenever you plan your visit make sure to have all your bookings done in advance.
