‘Secret season’ is best for South African holidays

If you’ve been thinking of taking a holiday to South Africa this year but have been unsure about when may be best to go, then advice from the country’s tourist board could be particularly pertinent.

In an article for the Daily Mail, the organisation recommends ‘secret season’, which is otherwise known as the period between May and August.

It states that this time of year mostly offers up pleasant days reminiscent of a very good spring in Britain, with the possibility of some very hot days too.

“Bright sunshine, balmy air, warm enough to eat under the stars – and perfect for a safari,” the tourist board states.

Not only this, but secret season could offer better value for money than other times of the year, with discounts of up to 30 per cent available on accommodation.

Safari trips to see prides of lions and ambling rhinos, as well as whale-watching excursions off the coast of Hermanus, are recommended as things to do for people taking holidays to South Africa.

For anyone with plenty of time to spare in South Africa, Cape Town is well worth a visit. Earlier this month, Frommers recommended the destination as a place that could wow tourists thanks to its wide range of attractions.
