Londolozi Properties

Year Round

South Africa is a year-round destination, and the best time to visit depends on your priorities. Safaris are best in the winter months (May to August). The grass is lowest, so game viewing is easier, and the temperatures are mild (maximum 20-23C). There is very little winter rainfall in the north. Namaqualand, in the Western and Northern Cape Provinces, becomes a floral phenomenon in spring (mid-August to mid-October), when the desert-like terrain is transformed into a carpet of flowers, drawing thousands of visitors. The best season for the beach is summer (November to mid-March). The southern regions are summer destinations, with low summer rainfall. Temperatures reach 28-30C or higher on truly beautiful days. The warm waters of the east coast make for almost year-round swimming. South Africans tend to take their annual holidays in summer, causing tourist destinations to be overcrowded from mid-December to late January, as well as during the other school holidays.

Sabi Sand Game Reserve, South Africa

Game Drives, Nature Walks & Great Bird Viewing.

Highly experienced game rangers and trackers will take you deep into the bushveld with an open vehicle for the best game viewing experiences. Game drives take lace in the mornings and afternoons / evenings. Game rangers also offer short walking safaris where you can enjoy the true beauty of the reserve, being rewarded by sightings of both large and tiny inhabitants. There is also a specific leopard tracking safari on foot which often gives the most rewarding sightings of leopards deep in the heart of the bush. Big 5 game viewing is exceptional. Leopard sightings are something of a specialty, and hardly a day goes by without sightings of these magnificent creatures. Whilst completely wild, they take no notice of vehicles, therefore occupants of safari vehicles get amazing sightings of leopards, even whilst they are on the hunt. Guests are extremely likely to see territorial and individually recognisable leopard and lion which are tracked on a daily basis, as well as hyena. Impala are the most abundant antelope, with common waterbuck, grey duiker, kudu, bushbuck and nyala. Buffalo herds, elephant, white rhino, giraffe, warthog and many other African wildlife species are commonly seen. Cape clawless otter and hippo are resident in the Sand River. Nocturnal animals include white-tailed mongoose, African civet and large-spotted genet.
