Packing List For South Africa

South Africa has some of the best weather you will find, but it can also be extremely hot during summer months, which are Jan - March and then September to December. This however is completely opposite in the winter, in the areas where we hunt most time, Northern Cape and Free State the weather can drop below freezing every morning.

Mar – Apr: highs of 90˚ F and lows of 60˚ F

May: highs of 80˚ F and lows of 50˚ F

Jun – Aug: highs of 65˚ F lows of 40˚ F

Sept – Oct: highs of 90˚ F. and lows of 60˚ F
