South Africa in July: Weather and where to go
Landscapes dry up further into July making wildlife sightings even better throughout the month so this would be the optimum time to seek out elusive leopards in South Africa’s game reserves. Animals are forced to gather round the dwindling water supplies making their movements more predictable. Therefore, rangers can ensure you are in the right place at the right time to ensure you have the best wildlife encounters possible.
Although morning and evening temperatures are cooler still, days will remain clear and dry and the mercury averages around 15°C in the middle of the day. These mild temperatures are suitable for walking safaris and are great for kids taking part in safari clubs learning about bush survival skills and conservation. However, nights can drop to 0°C so make sure you have plenty of warm layers for the evenings.
There may be some occasional, mild frost at dawn but this will quickly melt as the sun rises throughout the morning.
