Best time to go to Garden Route

Best
Good
Acceptable
The best time to visit this region is in the warmer months of September to April. The Garden Route is rainy throughout the year and is a popular summer destination that can get busy over the Christmas holidays. You will soon understand why, as you feel the warm rays while kloofing, abseiling and paragliding or simply taking a dip in the azure Indian Ocean. The months of June to August are colder but will provide opportunities for whale watching (peaking in September) with more windless days to enjoy.
