On holiday in South Africa.

South Africa is a breathtaking destination that offers a wide range of experiences. The country is known for its impressive landscapes, including the iconic Table Mountain, the lush Garden Route and the vast savannahs of the Kruger National Park. South Africa is also rich in culture and history, with sights such as Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, and the vibrant neighbourhoods of Johannesburg and Cape Town. Local cuisine is equally diverse, with influences from indigenous tribes, European settlers and Asian workers. Whether you are looking for adventure, relaxation or cultural enrichment, South Africa offers it all.

The climate in South Africa

South Africa has several climate zones. The north, west and large parts of central South Africa have relatively warm climate zones, such as a warm desert climate (north-west), warm steppe climate (north), cold desert climate (west and parts of the middle of the country) and a cold steppe climate (southern interior). The types according to the Köppen-Geiger climate classifications are BWh, BWk, BSh and BSk.In the east and along the coast you will find mainly land and sea climates, such as the temperate savannah climate (type Cwa), the temperate chinau climate (type Cwb) and to a lesser extent the cool chinau climate (type Cwc). Along the coasts you will find maritime climates of types Cfa (warm) and Cfb (temperate). Large parts of South Africa are lumped together by many other sites and described as a subtropical climate. This is not quite correct, as in large parts of the interior the temperature in the winter months is too low to meet that classification.
