Le Quartier Francais

We had such a wonderful stay, have felt completely relaxed and pampered with everything from open fires, candles in the room, little packets of fudge to the very sweet notes left on the bathroom mirror each night. The meal in the Tasting Room completely blew our minds – incredible! Your staff were charming, funny and incredibly courteous, we could not ask for anything more.

A great hotel. We even purchased one of the paper mache animals they had in the lobby (a hippo actually) to remind us of the experience.

The room was exquisite but we must advice others travellers to make a reservation to the restaurant (Tasting room) before. The hotel doesn't reserve tables for people staying at the hotel. Thanks to manager from Welgelegen Guest H... Read More

When is the best time to go on a safari holiday in South Africa?
South Africa is very much a country of two halves in terms of climate, with the north or the country, including Kruger National Park, the Madikwe Reserve and the reserves of KwaZulu Natal experiencing very different weather throughout the year to that found along the southern coast in the Kwandwe Reserve and Cape Town.

January and February
In the north of the country these summer months in South Africa bring hot temperatures and some rain, but wildlife tends to be in good health and give birth to their young and migrating birds move through these areas. The clear air and dramatic skies mean photography can be great.

In the south the summer months are the best time to visit with sunny days and a much lower chance of rain.

March and April
In the north these months spell the end of the rains and can be a ‘mid-season’ for the numbers of safari visitors and prices. The bush becomes more lush and green and animals are in great condition. These months are a fantastic time of year to combine a safari in northern South Africa with a holiday in Cape Town.

Although autumn in the south of South Africa means cooler days, it’s still a great time to visit Cape Town and the southern coast, with the grape harvest being a draw to the Winelands of Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and Paarl.

May to August
The north of South Africa is firmly into winter, although here this means clear sunny days and cooler evenings and nights – make sure you’ve got something warm for those early morning drives on an open safari vehicle. As the bush dies back wildlife viewing becomes easier as vistas open up and animals are also drawn to the remaining permanent water. Although these months are holiday months for Europeans, they're not for South Africans, so there can be some surprising bargains.

Winter in Cape Town and the southern coast of South Africa is the time the weather is at its most varied with clear days quickly becoming cold and wet. It’s a time for all but the most determined or hardy to steer clear of this area of the country.

September and October
Temperatures are climbing in the north and game viewing is very good. The land is starting to look parched, animals are driven to water and the dust in the air means sunsets can be spectacular. These are super months to combine a safari in the north with a stay in Cape Town.

Cape Town and South Africa’s southern coast are warming up and these are good months to visit, with the spring flowers in the Western Cape a particular highlight.


November and December

The first rains can fall in the north of South Africa in November and December, but the short sharp showers that do fall can take some of the heat out of the air and leave a wonderful ‘post rain’ scent. Wildlife viewing is still very good and the first flush of new grass adds to the beauty of the scenery. A Christmas safari in the warmth is an excellent way to avoid the cold damp weather of the northern hemisphere.

Quite rightly these months are high season for holidays to Cape Town, South Africa’s Winelands and the southern coast. Days are hot and sunny and the evenings are warm enough to sit out and enjoy a fabulous meal al fresco.
