South African Holidays, Honeymoons. Weddings Safaris and Golf Trips
South Africa is an immense country, extending nearly 2000km from the Limpopo River in the north to Cape Agulhas in the south and nearly 1500km from Port Nolloth in the west to Durban in the east.
From bushveld through deserts and forests, up winter snow-capped peaks down to wide, unspoiled beaches and coastal wetlands, lies the sprawling land of unequalled splendour and diversity. Visit this land of wonder. Rediscover nature and experience this living example of the triumph of unity over diversity. Hire a car to explore the wonder-filled wilderness, an intricate network of good roads and airstrips ensures that even some of the most remote areas in the country are accessible. Forge a new bond with nature. And see all manner of wonderful creatures: wildebeest, kudu, giraffe, hyena, as well as wild dog - once almost extinct. In these reserves, nature holds sway. Unspoiled. Untarnished. The land is as it has always been - and as it shall always remain.
South Africa Safaris Luxury, Tented.Consider South Africa for a Honeymoon Safari Here, you can view Africa's Big Five in a single day. Watch lion at a kill. Follow the tracks of a leopard. Find herds of buffalo grazing their way across the savannah. See white and black rhino in greater numbers than anywhere in Africa and discover the majestic elephant - still treading the same trails his ancient forebears did.
Kruger Safari Camp - Best time to visitThe best time for game viewing in Kruger National park is dry, the grass is low and bushes and trees don't have too many leaves allowing you an unobstructed view of the surrounding area. However some prefer the summer when the park is more lush with vegetation.
Winter season in the Kruger Park is quite dry and rain is scarce. During this season, visitors will be able to spot the animals when they come to the waterholes in the mornings and evenings.
Summer is the rainy season in Kruger Park and the rains fill the rivers and waterholes, and the bush is quite lush. Game viewing is difficult in the summer season because the vegetation is dense, making it harder to locate and observe wildlife.
Towards the end of November and early December, Kruger National Park is filled with newborns. Spotting wildlife with their young is a memorable Kruger Park safari experience.
Autumn is probably the most difficult time of the year to spot game in Kruger National Park because the grass is dense and high. Birding is usually excellent during autumn in Kruger Park.

The region's flora is spectacular, with wildflowers from peaceful lilies to raging red-hot pokers in the grasslands, weird succulents blooming after spring rains, and one of the world's six floral kingdoms - the Cape Floral Kingdom - prettying up the Western Cape. Large areas in the north are covered by a savannah-type vegetation, characterised by acacias and thorn trees, and there are forest remnants along the southern coast and in the north-east. South Africa is not a land through which you travel - it is a land through which you roam. Vast and untamed. With a natural glory that is some of the best preserved on the African continent.

Weather in South Africa
Autumn (fall) in South Africa (mid-February to April) offers in some ways the best weather. Very little rain falls over the whole country, and it is warm but not too hot, getting colder as the season progresses. *Visit Capetown in Autum for the best weather.
Winter - May to July The hot, humid KwaZulu-Natal coast, as well as the Lowveld (lower-lying areas) of Mpumalanga and Limpopo provinces, offer fantastic winter weather with sunny, warmish days and virtually no wind or rain. The Cape area gets most of the rain at this time of year.
Spring - (August to mid-October) this is the best time to see the flowers in the Cape area and the weather is perfect for touring the Cape route.
