What is the South African climate like?

0

South Africa is located in the Southern hemisphere and the seasons are reversed as opposed to those in the northern hemisphere. In summer (November — April) it is hot up north and in the east, hot and dry in the interior and sometimes tropically hot in the south. After a drought it can rain for long periods of time especially in areas along the coastline. There can be big thunderstorms, floods and rain, in particularly up north. In winter (June – August) it can be cold at night and it can freeze up north or in the highveld. Remember to take some warm clothing as well. The climate in the Eastern Cape is a fairly mild climate, in summer it can be very hot and humid, while in winter it can cool down quite a bit. Though temperatures rarely get below 14 degrees Celsius so it isn’t necessary for you to bring any winter jackets. A couple of sweaters and a wind jacket will be sufficient to keep you warm. Port Elizabeth is also known as the Windy City, as the wind can blow quite strongly so
