Krueger Park Info

OK, thanks to this board I am convincing my wife that South Africa should be our destination of choice (over Kenya). We were looking forward to "splurging" on a hot-air balloon ride in Kenya. Anything similar near/in/at the National Parks of South Africa? We will most definitely take a side-trip to Vic Falls so we should be able to do that there. Anyone have any experiences with ballooning there?

And a final (repeat) question; what sort of temperatures/weather can we expect in late Sep in South Africa? Can we plan on enjoying any beach weather in the east or south?

Thanks again for all your help!

HC

Hi HC
You can take balloon rides over all the National Parks including at Livingston in Zambia (Vic Falls). The one over the Golden Gate National Park and the one at Pilanesburg are super as I imagine they all are.

About the weather, September is a very nice month to be here - the rainy season has not really begun yet and winter is over so it's warm but not hot yet. Down on the Indian Ocean is warm all year long and people swim there all the time. It is more humid at sea level than inland on the plateau. There is also some very good surfing and fishing in the Durban area, which is east. Further south near Cape Town the swimming weather might be iffy - One day it is great and another a cold front moves in from the Antarctic. Summer is there, however is terrific.
