South Africa in September: Weather and where to go
Similarly to August, September sees dry days and fairly high numbers of tourists throughout the country. Temperatures do, however, start to rise - averages in Kruger National Park are around 22°C. Although rainfall has risen from August, it is still only around 24mm average throughout the month which is unlikely to have a huge impact on your safari experience.
Vegetation will remain sparse as the majority of shrubs and grasses will have been grazed down throughout the winter. This makes spotting all the big cats much easier than during the wet season as game movements are more predictable.
This is the end of the ideal season for walking safaris so if this is something that’s on your safari bucket list make sure travel between April and September to make the most of this exciting alternative to traditional game drives.
