Best time of year to visit SA

Thanks everyone for the replies to my previous questions - all hints/suggestions are very appreciated!! I was also wondering what people think the best time of year is to go. We chose April because it sounds like Vic Falls are at their fullest March, April & May, but we certainly flexible if other times are better to visit overall.

Thanks again,

David

You'll get various ideas about the best times to go. Consider heat and rains. Some people like the winter because the leaves are off the trees - supposedly you can see the animals better. We went in September/October, just when leaves were coming on the tres, and that was very nice. You'll just have to decide beased on what you like. There is also the matter of off-season prices. Ciao, L

I think autumn is the best time of year in SA - not so hot, the rain has eased off and we have gorgeous balmy long sunny afternoons. March/April & May are the best months for the Falls - and remember the mozzie repellant and your malaria tablets!

I 've just returned from a two-weeks trip to south Africa, Zimbabwe,
Zambia and Botswana. It was warm and humid in some places, but I loved all the greenery. They tell me that the best time to visit is their winter (July-Aug.-Sept), because you can see the animals better and they gather in great numbers around the water holes in the dry season. But I saw lots of game and the landscape was very beautiful. Also, in winter, it can be very cold in the mornings and evenings -- you will need some warm clothing. I just took shorts and tee shirts for my trip!
