@ Afriphile, this one is a particularly strong cold front and whenever they leave snow on the Cape mountains we get very cold weather, especially minimums, on the Highveld. Even Skukuza was forecast to have -2C last night. Weaker cold fronts often do not affect Kruger.

In the daytime it will probably get quite warm, but it can be cold overnight, and you will need to dress very warmly if you decide to do any game drives on the Sanparks trucks, as they are open vehicles and there is a wind chill factor as well.

That said, what we think of as cold, you English folk probably feel is warm. :D

I presume the current cold weather is due to a cold Antarctic front moving up the country.
If this is true,then how long do they last for,and how often do they occur?
I am bringing friends,for the first time,to KNP and have told them to pack Tee shirts and shorts!!


Afriphile, I have been caught off guard at Kruger. I always take a warm jacket, a couple of pairs of warm socks and a woolen hat, just in case. I once stayed at Tambotie in September and my car thermometer registered minus six in the morning.

As Sue said, it does become quite pleasant in the daytime, but cold fronts can continue until October.

The Cape is bathed in glorious late winter sunshine. The South Easter that heralds spring is thankfully absent.
