Off-Peak South Africa Travel - The Benefits
There is a reason why there are peak holiday seasons throughout a year: they mostly coincide with school holidays and that is the time of year that parents also normally take leave. South Africans travel all-year round but many establishments have peak or expensive and off-peak or less expensive rates. Travellers on strict budgets find the latter a good reason to pack their bags and go during these periods. Often there are 3 or 4 different rating scales with the December one being the most expensive. In certain parts of the country South Africa Travel is cheaper during the colder months - in really cold sections or regions that are off the beaten track. In others such as the Kruger that is a peak season because the summer heat is fiercer, and with it comes an increase in malaria.
We at African Sky Safari are specialists in the South Africa Travel scene. We can advise on different destinations, main attractions, the weather that travellers can expect, where to find wildlife such as The Big Five, and much more. Another advantage of travelling out of season is that there are fewer people to compete with. Consider long lines at Ratanga Junction at Canal Walk, beaches packed to capacity and waiting in line to enter a game park or other tourist attraction!
Embarking on South Africa Travel at times when others are at work or at school can also mean that tourists can take advantage of better off-peak weather. In Cape Town for instance, the weather is better overall between February and April since that is the best time to experience wind-free days.
As fewer people are up and about during quieter times, it also means that tourist destinations in general will be quiet. Tourists can be noisy and rowdy at times and this can spoil an otherwise enjoyable vacation. South Africa Travel over the off-peak seasons is increasing in popularity, and we at African Sky Safari are equipped and committed to helping you book your ideal package or customise your itinerary as desired
