As a starting point the weather.
The area in the North ie Johannesburg,Kruger Park,Botswana,Victoria Falls,will be coming out of their wet rainy season.
By April most of the rain should be over,if anything an occasional short rain in the afternoon.For the bush this is a positive thing as it keeps the dust down,and cleans the air.
For the South ie Cape Town,beautiful end of Summer warmer days, possibly some windy days, and or with some light rainy days( infrequent but could happen) beginning to show up,as the country heads towards winter.
Across the region warmer days with cooler nights….From a Safari perspective a good time to go on Safari.
Areas excluding Safaris,Safari info below.
What follows are some possibilities that can be combined together.
Garden Route...Short flight from Cape Town,a easy self drive of about 5 hours.
2 ways to reach the area if driving…One is by the main inland highway that passes through small farming areas mostly wheat farms before joining up with the coast.
The other my personal favorite is by a inland route called the Worlds Longest Wine Route.Smaller towns,vineyards, fruit farms etc before changing over as you head north to a semi dessert region ending up in the area where all the Ostrich farms are. From here its a short drive to connect with the coast highway and the coastal towns of the Garden route.
If there are any ex surfers who dreamed of riding Jeffrey’s Bay,it can be done a little further North upthe Garden Route, and if there are are any adrenaline junkies you can jump the worlds highest bungy jump in the area as well.
Another variation of the above is to take another inland highway reaching the more remote popular town of Prince Albert ie food, wine,etc, from where you can take one of the countries most scenic passes(dirt road) and on the other side of the pass reach the Ostrich town of Oudschoorn. From here its a short drive to connect with the coast highway and the coastal towns of the Garden route.
This link to my site will cover this area….Garden Route
For those who have a interest in history/culture of S Africa,and has some nice museums.
A 2N stay can cover this area
This is an arid area part of the Kalahari desert that has one of S Africa biggest rivers running through it,creating a green belt of wineries,raisin farms and is one of the world largest grape/wine collectives.
It fit’s in well with a Safari to the Kgalaagadi National Park that is larger than the Kruger Park.
