My 20 days trip to South Africa.
If you want to enjoy a safari, although the animals are present throughout the year, the best time to do it in winter, when there is less vegetation, so it is much easier to see them.
If what you want is to see the incredible southern whales, typical of the South African coast, you should travel to South Africa between the months of June to December, when it is not strange to see them from the coast itself.
Although many people make the trip to South Africa in an organized way, it is perfectly feasible to do this trip by yourself, including safaris through the natural parks, which you can do with your own car.
