Tour South Africa in January and February For Best Deals
Tour South Africa when the masses have gone back to work and school, when obligations at home call travellers back to where they come from and at a time when lodges are empty and roads quiet. January and February are the months after the big influx of visitors to holiday locations, a time when visitors can drive and stop at an animal sighting and get close enough to actually see the hunt or other action. At peak times vehicles block roads at such hotspots and more often than not the latecomer is too late for anything spectacular.
We at Africa Sky Safaris can help you plan your bookings to the most amazing parts of Africa's southern tip. Tour South Africa with a reputable operator to ensure that your itinerary is adhered to and in order to ensure complete peace of mind from start to finish of your trip. Tour operators usually also offer great off-peak deals during the Jan and Feb period. This makes perfect sense for those looking to explore the best of SA economically, at a quieter time and the while receiving exactly the same offering that's priced much higher during peak season. Since there are fewer people on the tour, the experienced guides will also be able to provide personal attention to guests, answer questions, and make leisurely stops with ease.
January and February are also good months in which to tour South Africa in terms of climatic conditions. It is still mid-summer, so those who plan to visit Durban and the other beaches of KwaZulu-Natal can still work on a tan - and do remember the sunscreen please. Beaches at places such as Balito, St Lucia and Amanzimtoti are relatively empty during weekdays when people are at work and children are at school, plus accommodation becomes available at the various game parks in this province too. This means that the chances of staying at the specific SA game lodge you've been hoping for, is virtually 100%.
Plan to tour South Africa after the December rush and be surprised by the lower prices for just about everything. Lodges, B&BS, hotels and self-catering apartments often charge as much as double before and after the Christmas season. Take the opportunity to drive down the Garden Route in the Western Cape and spend some time at Dana Bay and Mossel Bay; discover the tide pools and other reasons why these and other coastal towns are firm favourites of families. You can also explore the lush east coast and visit game parks such as Hluhluwe; there's also the Kruger Park inland coupled with some of the best private lodges found anywhere!
