South Africa is a year-round destination with an ideal climate: summers are hot and the winters, for the most part, quite mild.

The size of the country and the substantial variations in altitude mean that climatic conditions vary throughout.

In the Johannesburg area, 2000m above sea level, summers are hot with showers, and the winters dry and chilly. Along the subtropical Kwa-Zulu Natal coast, summers are hot and humid with mild winters. Cape Town has a Mediterranean climate with rainfall during the winter and long, mellow summer days.
