When to go

South African Country Life - - Hiking -

There are two flower sea­sons – spring (Au­gust to Oc­to­ber) and April, when sev­eral bul­bous species in­clud­ing can­de­labra and red paintbrush lilies (Hae­man­thus) flower. Septem­ber, when tem­per­a­tures are mod­er­ate and there’s plenty of wa­ter, is the prime month to visit. Tem­per­a­tures can soar to 40°C in sum­mer, so the short trails are pop­u­lar as you can es­cape the heat in the pools and wa­ter­falls.
