South Africa has perfect weather all year around and boasts one of the better climates the world has to offer – despite being known for being notoriously hot in the summer. Spring provides the perfect weather for the traveller and local alike. Gone are the cold and dark days of winter and no yet are the sweltering days of summer instead there is the perfect marriage of the two providing weather that is warm and breezy, weather that offers an array of sights and smells that make the tv look dull, and relief seem the dream.

The South African Sky

Just like the crystal water of SA, there is nothing quite like the clarity of the African sky and the constellation of stars which provide light when the night gets dark. No matter where you are there will always be an array of lights to admire and wish upon. The spring breeze blows the clouds away leaving us with clear skies all season round. The African sky truly leaves us in awe and is one of the most profound and meaningful reasons to visit South Africa.

Eight World Heritage Sites

Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park, Robben Island, Richtersveld, The Cape Floristic Region, the Isimangaliso Wetland Park, Verde Dome and the Cradle of Mankind are all part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and can be seen throughout South Africa. These sites are not seasonal and are available all year round. However, they are more enjoyable in the warm breeze season of Spring.

History

South Africa is rich and diverse in history just as it is in with its people. With many historical tourist attractions and sites sprinkled throughout the country; places like the Battlefield Route in KwaZulu Natal which boast some of South Africa’s most tragic and violent war history and has the largest concentration of historical battle sites in SA, where infamous battles such as Blood River and The Anglo Boer War were fought. Kimberley’s Big Hole, where the beginning of South Africa’s commercial and mining industry can be traced back. The Nelson Mandela Capture Site in Howick KwaZulu Natal, where Nelson Mandela was caught after an evasion of the Apartheid Government for 18 months, this capture site was the first step to the process of Mandela becoming a world icon for peace and hope.
