People come from around the world to experience South Africa's diverse regions.
Kruger National Park is one of the most renowned protected areas in the world and is a South African national symbol. This national park is close to two million hectares and home to 336 trees, 49 fish, 34 amphibians, 116 reptiles, 507 birds, and 147 mammals, including the Big Five: lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, and rhino.
Kruger National Park is undoubtedly one of the best destinations for nature photographers - the diversity of the Kruger National Park is truly astounding.
South Africa really is many worlds in one. Expect stunning coastlines, dramatic mountainscapes, huge areas of untamed bushveld, starkly beautiful semi-deserts, lakes, waterfalls, spectacular canyons, forests and wide plains, plus Cape Town, undeniably one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

South Africa Weather:
Traveling in APRIL – This is the in-between “Autumn” season, with warm pleasant days and cool nights. There may be some rainfall, but April is approaching the dry season, and is an ideal time to visit all the regions of South Africa. Dress in layers, and bring a light jacket or fleece for evenings.
During the dry winter months of April through August, the days are warm, but the nights can become very cold as it gets into the middle of Winter – June and July.
Many travelers assume that because they are traveling to Africa, it must always be warm. This is not the case during South Africa’s winter. You can expect days to be absolutely beautiful, temperate and sunny, but nights and early mornings will be chilly, so we recommend you bring warm layers you can peel off as it warms up through the day. A lightweight down jacket or fleece pullover is ideal.
Late September through March is a much hotter period, and you will need cool clothes, although you can still expect occasional rain showers. Late October, November and December can be generally the hottest time of the year, with temperatures often reaching into the 90s to sometimes100s° F in some regions.
