Well, we went on the Ultimate Africa trip in August. It was their winter, and the days were pleasant....in the 70's, but very cold at night.....lower 30's. That was Botswana, Namibia, and Zimbabwe. Then for the post-trip to Cape Town in South Africa, the weather was quite good also. About the same temps as for the other 3 countries. It was not the rainy season, so we didn't have to contend with that; however, it was snowing in Cape Town about 3 days before we got there!!!....but it had stopped and melted before we got there!!
