Best Time To Visit South Africa

Set your heart on a destination, we will help you find the best time to visit.

South Africa is a year round destination as it is a diverse country with weather that varies from region to region. Cape Town and the Western Cape go through winter rainfall from June to August and also hot summer along with heaving thundershowers from December to March including Kruger Park. On the other hand the Garden Route and Eastern Cape experience rain at any time of the year.  

The winter month between May and October is the best time for amazing game viewing on safari ride in Kruger, Pilanesberg and more as animals are usually found around water source and are easily found in the bushes. For a beach holiday in Cape Town you can choose to go in hot summer months between November to March, but do keep in mind to book your stay in advance if you want to experience Christmas or New Year there. The KwaZulu –Natal Coast is bright year round and has nice winter and warm ocean temperatures and so you can visit it anytime. To capture whales in south-western Cape on Whale Coast precisely, head to the destination between June to November. Top tip: Go to Hermanus for the beginning of whale watching spirits in September.

It's One of The Best Trips We Have Done Till Now!

I am pleased to share that the saidtrip was one of the best trips  we have done till now. With the scenic destinations and good selection of tourist spots for the tour, hotels and food was also excellent. Especially, the tour to Victoria Falls and Botswana, it was beyond imagination to get the taste like homemade Gujarati food arranged by Flamingo as well as service of the local tour operator.

Thank you Flamingo for making our trip to South Africa so well organised and memorable.
Our itinerary covered almost all interesting places in South Africa like Pilanesburg and the Lion park, Suncity with adventure sports and Bakubung with amazing wildlife experience and beautiful resort in the forest
Harsh was so helpful and very keen to see that he fulfilled all the promises given by Flamingo travels of various sightseeing and activities
We were never rushed and had enough time on sightseeing.
Food was Excellent throughout with lot of Variety!!
Hotels were good but as we had upgraded to ‘THE Palace ‘in Suncity we had a better experience A special thanks to HARSH for helping us get back our Mobile phone which was lost in the flight He was very competent in tackling this adverse situation and didn’t give up till he managed to get it back
Overall a great experience!!
Would love to travel with you again!!

South Africa Tour Was Excellent

My family and I enjoyed a great 12-day tour. The itinerary was excellent, the quality of hotels, Indian food, the comfort and the warmth, knowledge & charm of our guide Mr. Darshakbhai were all perfect! Extremely happy with this tour and highly recommendable to anyone that wants to enjoy the Wildlife & Adventure at its fullest. We were fortunate to see almost all of the animals in their natural habitats: leopard, elephants, giraffes, zebras, rhinos, hippos, buffalo, ostrich. Cape Town is the most beautiful city I have ever visited: 360-degree views of mountains and coastline; the penguins. Take a good camera with a good zoom lens. It’s been a truly breath-taking and awesome experience and we highly recommend Flamingo Travels to anybody who wants to travel to Africa.

I was one of the members  of the  group  of 9 persons  of the 17th  June tour to SA. It was one of the  best  tour we've  visited so far & the  credit  must go to you & your staff in & out AHMEDABADwho are sincere,cooperative, adjustable, &positive  which  made our tour  enjoyable &comfortable.


I would  like  to mention  about the role  played by  Shri  Darshak Gohil, your staff member at SA  who has  treated ,helped, behaved with  everyone in a most fantastic  manner  without  showing  any displeasure  or disrespect.


I recommend you to compensate  him as per your discretion.

We will certainly  recommend  your  company 's name  to our friends &relatives  as&when  they plan to tour  out of country.
