Best time to go to Eastern Cape Game Reserves

The Eastern Cape has a Goldilocks climate – not too hot, not too cold – with plenty of sunshine, making it a prime year-round destination. The best time to visit for wildlife viewing is in the dry winter season from May to September as the foliage is sparse and animals flock to water sources. The winter nights can be very cold, so you will need your fleece and beanie. Between October and April, reserves are busier owing to the warm weather. You can also enjoy an abundance of baby animals, spring flowers and migratory birds during this period.


Melton Manor

The luxury Melton Manor villa sleeps 8 in 4 en-suite bedrooms, all featuring large private verandas, butler hatches, extra-large double beds, generous bathtubs and showers that are perfectly positioned in front of large windows, designed to allow you to completely soak up the stunning views of the Afromontane Forests.
