The climate of Krugerpark (South Africa)
Krugerpark is one of the largest National Parks in the world. The park was founded in 1926 to protect endangered species. Krugerpark has been one of the main attractions in South Africa ever since. The landscape and the fauna are overwhelming and majestic. This is the right area to spot the Big Five. A large population of elephants lives in this park. The park is located in Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces.
Krugerpark has a moderate savannah climate. This part of South Africa does not really experience four distinct seasons. However, there is a dry period and a wet period. Summers are wet, winters are dry. Chances of rain during the winter months are slim. During this period the sun shines exuberantly. Temperatures are around 25 degrees Celsius on average. Differences in temperature between summer and winter are small. During the summer night time temperatures are warm and sultry. During the winter temperatures can plummet during the night. Whoever wants to travel to Kruger National Park needs to bear in mind that this is the only Natural Reserve where the malarial mosquito is active during the wetter summer months. Please take precautions before traveling to this part of South Africa.

The best time to visit Kruger National Park is during the winter. The vegetation is less dense during this period which makes it easier to spot animals. Temperatures are more pleasant for humans and animals. This means animal life is more active, especially in the morning. Winter drought makes for easier photographing during safaris although skies are less bright because of moist and dusty air. Another large benefit of the winter season is the inactiveness of the malaria mosquito. This means you donít have to take precautions against malaria.

Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
