INFORMATION ON WEATHER, TEMPERATURES, RAINFALL AND SEASONS IN AFRICA.

Winter light in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa Winters in southern Africa extend from mid May to early August - by the experience of the northern hemisphere African winters are extremely mild.

Seasons in Africa are not as distinct by contrast with what you'll encounter in Europe or North America. The further you move towards the tropics, the less defined the seasons are. Cape Town is probably the most extreme climate that you will encounter. It is however also unique in Africa because it has a Mediterranean weather system, unlike the rest of the continent.

Wildlife enthusiasts generally favour the dry season when temperatures are moderate to high. Game activities are generally limited by the availability of fresh grazing and browsing resources. Rains usually scatter browsers and their persistent predators; dry periods predictably concentrate animals around residual water sources.

Migrant birds concentrate their activities in southern Africa during the summer months that usually last from October to March.
