South Africa in April: Weather and where to go
Cooler temperatures arrive in April and fewer clouds and clear skies means less rainfall in the northern and eastern reserves. Although this means mornings and evenings will be a bit colder, days will remain pleasantly warm. Humidity also drops which means daytime temperatures around 25-28°C are much more agreeable than the earlier summer months.
Birdlife remains abundant into April in South Africa before departing for the warmer summer climes of the northern hemisphere. They can also be slightly easier to spot during this time as vegetation reduces due to the lessening rainfall.
Thanks to the warm current from the east, the Indian Ocean side of the country is comfortable during this time and the sea water is temperate.
This is a great chance to snorkel and encounter South African marine life.
