The seasons are switched to those in Europe, so they see their warmest temperatures in mid-October - mid-February. We could feel the heat in Cape Town in January and were constantly warned about wearing plenty of sun cream when going to the top of Table Mountain on a clear day. Most areas in South Africa stay dry and warm throughout the year, with the exceptions of the South-West Coast rain and snow in the mountains, and the odd Cyclone in the East. We were unlucky to be on the edge of a cyclone by the end of our journey in mid-March, so that probably isn't the best time to travel, weather-wise.
