    hi there,

    From mid-December to January is peak time in South Africa. Also, Easter time in April is far too busy here. If you're on a tight budget, I wouldn't recommend traveling these times.

    Mid-September to November and late April and May are the best times to enjoy a holiday in South Africa. Prices are low and you can enjoy attractions with lesser crowds.

    Hi there, have visited South Africa twice in the last three years at Christmas time. Weather is superb and yes flights may be a little more expensive due to the high season but compared to Europe its considerably cheaper in my opinion. Depending on where you go it can get very warm but if you are like me I enjoy the sun as i see so little of it in the UK !
