          Hello. We are thinking of coming for New Year. I see it's rainy season and wondered if this effects the drives and viewings of animals. We did 4 nights safari on the eastern cape this year and loved it. We did have one drive where it pured with rain but it was otherwise dry.

          Hi, during Christmas and New Year we are in the start of the hot period. The actual rain should be gone by then so you should normally have no real issues except for the potential thunderstorms when it becomes really hot.
