South African Winter Deals to warm up to

Posted by Out & About Africa on Sun June 9, 2024 in South Africa.

Winter does not have to be dull & dreary and stop you from traveling, in fact, do not let the word "winter" in South Africa put you off as this amazing country has some incredible hidden gems & traveler favorites. Winter (June to August) is the best time to hit the bush trails of South Africa's great parks and reserves. Sparse vegetation and dry weather draw thirsty animals to waterholes which makes it easier to spot wildlife. If you can get an opportunity like this for cheaper, even the better. Here are some great Winter deals worth exploring.
