The climate of Calvinia (South Africa)
Calvinia lies on the banks of the Oorlogskloof river (war ravine) in the province of Northern Cape. It was founded in 1847. Calvinia is located at the foot of the Hantam mountain range at an altitude of 1000 metres. Calvinia is the wool centre of South Africa and thus an important trading place. Akkerdam National Reserve lies just outside the little town of Calvinia. This park offers several hiking trails of varying levels. During the month of September all of the flowers flourish in this park which makes it a must see. The old houses have all been renovated; this gives Calvinia a picturesque feel.
Calvinia has a warm steppe climate. This is a transition climate between a tropical climate and a desert climate. Vegetation largely consists of grasses because of the little amount of precipitation. During the summer temperatures are around 30 degrees Celsius on average.
