Well, it's pretty much still the middle of winter!
Which park has the coldest weather?

From what I have noted, KTP can have horrendously cold nights.

I might hazard a guess here though and suggest the Golden Gate might be the coldest over all.

That's what's worrying me, though it warms up during the nice sunny days!

I wonder which Sanpark has had the lowest temperatures so far?

Golden Gate in winter is cold. One year in July the streams remained frozen solid throughout the day. Do not know if it is the coldest National Park though but is goes well into the – temperatures in Golden Gate.

Karoo can also be very cold.

There is a nice BIG cold front hitting the Cape now ... so by the time you get to GG, Goronta, it should be there :P Camdeboo and MZNP can also be cold ...
