Climate, Clothing and what to pack?
The rainy season is normally from November through March, being summer with the temperature very warm, the remainder of the year April through September is cooler and is the main hunting season, but if you are fit and don't mind heat or rain, then year round hunting is available.
We don't have control over climate and wildlife, no outfitter can guarantee fine weather and that species mentioned will always be located within the hunt.
That is why hunts are normally 7-day minimum.
In general, South Africa has a perennially sunny climate, but the sun can be extremely fierce.
The use of a hat and sunscreen is recommended.
Midwinter occurs in June and July, midsummer in December and January. Climate ranges from
Mediterranean in the Cape Peninsula to sub-tropical on the KwaZulu-Natal Coast and in the North Eastern interior, and temperate conditions prevail on the Highveld.
South Africa tap water is extremely palatable and perfectly safe to drink.
Bottled water is also available in most retail outlets.
220/240 Volts AC, 50Hz Converters necessary for electrical appliances.
