The Cape Region and the Garden Route begin their wetter season from May onwards which makes it a less than ideal time to visit and journey down the coast.
May sees the beginning of the peak season for safari travellers as the drier months of May – October provide the optimum landscapes for wildlife sightings. The later in the season you leave your trip, the clearer landscapes will be and the more predictable wildlife sightings are as the animals are dependent on the dwindling water supplies.
May is also still a great time to visit the Drakensberg Mountains so despite the cooling temperatures across the country, this month can offer a lot of variety for your trip. Please ask our destination specialists to plan your tailored safari around your preferences.
