South Africa in March: Weather and where to go
March begins with a decrease in rainfall from the previous summer months. Although this may not be immediate, it is generally a drier month all-round than January or February. With this, temperatures also start to decrease although not dramatically.
Evenings in Kruger are unlikely to get lower than 15°C but with the wind chill factor of the game drive vehicles, warmer layers may be necessary for evening and early morning drives. Daytime highs will still be up in the late 20s and as the afternoon skies are clearer than the summer months you may have chance to relax by the pool with a book between game drives.
Vegetation will still be fairly thick during March as it has not had time to dry out and be grazed down by the wildlife yet, but as the climate is somewhat drier you will have plenty of chances on your drives to seek out the quintessential African animals.
As a result of the slightly lower temperatures, big cats are less likely to be hidden away in shady spots during the day making sightings probable.
