KTP Feb / Mar vs July / August?

Unread post by BDM CAPE TOWN » Thu Aug 25, 2016 5:38 pm

Hi All,

I have been to the park a few times but always in June / July or late August, we are now planning a trip for end Feb early March 2017 and I was wondering what would be different from July / August?

Especially:

Weather? (Hotter, wetter?)
Game viewing? (heard that the grass could be high)

Anything else you can think of that might be helpful would be great,

Many thanks,
Bryan

Hi we have been both Feb/March twice August/September once and leaving again next week. Both are fantastic.

This year in March it was hot, but very bearable. Rained quite a bit. Wild flowers amazing. Animals less easy to see. February 2015 was also hot but dry and animals at waterholes easier to see. Brilliant thunderstorms both times. Grass no problem in a 4x4 but probably high for a sedan.

It's great time of year to go and a huge contrast to August or September. You will love it.

Hi Penolva,

Thanks for the post, it does sound good indeed. We will be in 4x4 so good to hear will see over the grass.
5 sleeps, you are lucky, travel safe and enjoy.
