Anyone considering holidays to South Africa should take them in ‘secret season’, otherwise known as the period between May and August.

Anyone considering holidays to South Africa should take them in ‘secret season’, otherwise known as the period between May and August.

This is the advice of an article from the South African tourist board, published in the Daily Mail, which points out that this time offers pleasant, spring-like days to enjoy.

“Bright sunshine, balmy air, warm enough to eat under the stars – and perfect for a safari,” the article states.

Even better for Britons watching the pennies, secret season offers excellent value for money, with discounts of up to 30 per cent on accommodation.

The tourist board suggests taking a safari trip to see prides of lions, herds of elephants and ambling rhinos, as well as a whale-watching trip off the coast of Hermanus.

Earlier this month, Frommers recommended Cape Town as somewhere that will wow visitors, adding that it is one of the world’s best places to holiday thanks to its wide range of attractions.
