When to Go
on a Garden Route Safari?
Home to a healthy, malaria-free environment, the Eastern Cape sits under sunny skies for most of the year – indeed, many reserves boast an average of between seven and eight hours of sunshine a day. Rain can occur at any time of year but is heaviest in the spring and early summer months – September to December. May, June and July are usually the driest months.
Temperatures are never extreme in the Eastern Cape except perhaps in mid-summer with averages in the early 30s °C. Winters are cold with minimum temperatures dipping to just above freezing. It’s worth wrapping up warmly on early morning game drives!
