What time of year is best to go?
The projects and the tours operate all year around. The South African weather is alot more reliable than NZ weather, especially in winter. Summer will bring higher temperatures in the day with a possible thunderstorm in the afternoon from the heat build up. Winter has cooler mornings and evenings with warm temperatures in the day.
These averages are based on 5 years of data at Kruger Park. Please remember the projects operate all over South Africa - this is just a guide to the weather at Kruger Park so you get an idea.
