Best time to visit
The coastal area of the Eastern Cape is an extension of the subtropical Western Cape. In general, the weather here is kind to visitors. Summers (November to March) are warm; winters (June to September) are mild. Nelson Mandela Bay (Port Elizabeth) enjoys an annual average of seven hours of sunshine per day and the region justifies its title as the Sunshine Coast.
The northern reaches of the province lie in the arid Great Karoo and the temperatures there are much more extreme. Summers are hot and dry and the winters are cold with occasional snow on higher ground.
Most visitors to the Eastern Cape start their journey in Cape Town, travel up the Garden Route and end their stay with a classic safari in an Eastern Cape game reserve. This route is best in summer, when you’re unlikely to have your outdoor plans thwarted by rain.
