Expect intense heat in the daytime with occasional thunderstorms in the afternoon. Vegetation is dense and lush because of summer rains, and the bush teems with newborn animals. A very good time for bird watching.
At the end of the summer rains the water holes are full. Temperatures begin to drop at night and the vegetation starts to change colour.
Daytime temperatures are pleasant and nights are cold. Visibility in the bush is very good, making winter an excellent time for game viewing.
The dull bush changes to lively green vegetation at the start of the rainy season. Temperatures are pleasant.

The South African Rand (ZAR) is the local currency. There are 100c to every rand. Foreign exchange may be arranged at the airports, or in major centres / cities. It is not recommended that travellers carry large sums of cash. Rather keep a reasonable amount on hand, and primarily use credit cards. Travellers cheques are also welcome.
There are many road-side vendors along the major routes in the country selling local hand-crafted products. These vendors trade in cash only.
It is highly recommended that you do not stop in informal settlements along your journey.
All major credit cards are accepted as a valid form of payment at Camp Jabulani.
