Best time to go to Amakhala Game Reserve

January to May are the best months to visit this part of the country. Thanks to mild temperatures, and the oceanic climate, it won’t feel too hot or too cold. Wind and rain is also generally at a minimum, making it the perfect season for daily game drives. The area is rather humid, making the overall temperature edge on the tropical side. August until December is also just as pleasant as things become warmer after winter.
