    If you're going on safari, ask the agency you're considering using (or ask a few) if they have any specials on at the time - a lot of the lodges we've dealt with over the years regularly send us updates on their current specials, and we pass these on to clients to keep our rates competitive. We sometimes have specials for Cape Town / Joburg as well, not just safari destinations.

    As for best time to go, most of South Africa except Cape Town is decent year round, but April - May are the best general months. (CT is rainy in winter and windy Dec - Feb). The bush is best in winter because it's dry so you can see wildlife more easily, but the babies are born in September - Oct, and it's too hot to be fun over Dec - Feb.
