Weather overview for kruger

Kruger national park is South Africa’s largest nature reserve covering more than 18,900 square km. Kruger’s overall climate is hard to define as throughout the summer months weather similar to a humid tropical climate is experienced and during the winter a climate similar to the desert with extreme highs and lows is featured. Summers tend to be very hot and wet, and winters are hot during the day and cold at nights. Alike any city in the southern hemisphere, winter’s in Kruger take place in June, July and August and Summer’s in December, January and February. Generally the typical weather featured in Kruger will suit all tourists, apart from periods in the peak of summer when temperatures are extremely hot.


The months of September, October and November are particularly pleasant as the sweltering temperatures of the summer have not yet commenced and the extreme lows of winter have bypassed. Sunshine hours are particularly high still averaging at nine hours each day at the end of September. Rainfall levels are also low at the beginning of spring and slowly rise from 26mm in September to 66mm in November.


Although summer is Kruger’s wettest period of the year, rain rarely falls for more than seven days each month. Precipitation usually results in heavy but short lived downpours and the average rainfall ranges at 280mm over the three months combined. Summers tend to last a little longer than the typical three months one would expect as average temperatures rise to the mid thirties they commonly rocket well into the low forties.


Similar to spring, the months of March, April and May are a favourable time to visit Kruger. Temperatures are still mild with highs of 32ºC in March and lows 11ºC in May. Rainfall shows the biggest variation of all seasons as it descends significantly from 68mm in March down to 14mm in March.


Although nights can get quite chilly, the days during the winter months are still warm and very sunny. Visitors will still require warm clothing, but generally only at night time. Temperatures can be quite extreme during the winter as a twenty degree difference can be noted from highs of 26ºC down to lows of 6ºC. Rainfall is also very minimum averaging at 32mm over the three months combined. Sunshine hours are also exceptionally high therefore warm sunny days can always be expected.
