Summertime and Amazing South Africa Travel
South Africa is a land with hot and humid summers in some parts, meaning that swimming pools and beaches are frequented daily over these times! Still tourists and locals alike love the fairly moderate climate, and the generally good weather experienced throughout the year. So, summer travel can be all about "the beach", but it can also focus on inland attractions from safaris, to wildlife viewing, nature trails and much more. South Africa travel during the summer can be enjoyed with tours taking you to stunning places like Cape Town and other towns along the West Coast, Durban and its north and south beaches and St Lucia to name a few.
St Lucia is located on the warmer east coast of South Africa. It is a well-known fishing destination and heritage site. The beaches also make swimming, water sports, sun bathing and beach walks possible in some parts. South Africa travel to this area will also put visitors within striking distance of fantastic game parks, such as Hluhluwe Game Reserve - well known for spectacular rhino viewing.
Cape Town is well-known for the beaches at Blouberg, Sea Point, Camps Bay and at Clifton to name a few. The water of the Atlantic Ocean is colder than the Indian Ocean waters, but even so, swimmers will always enter the water on warmer days; alternatively wet suits are normally worn for surfing and other water sports. Aside from the beach and waterfront attractions you can also visit the distinctive and world-class wine regions at Constantia, Durbanville, Stellenbosch, Paarl or Franschhoek. The welcoming environment also means you can visit a restaurant or pub and talk to the locals about the weather, the snoek catch, the direction of the wind and so on.
Durban itself is quite humid in summer, but there is no stopping the people of South Africa! After a year of work - travelling to the beach and the seaside, remain popular. If you are on a South Africa travel tour, do as the locals do and choose a seaside destination filled with sun and fun. Travel inland, visit game reserves and enjoy wildlife viewing, bird watching and much more!
