Hunting in South Africa runs all year round with the main hunting season from middle April till middle September.
The Limpopo province gets summer rainfall, so there are basically two ways to determine when the best time for your Safari will be.
Middle April – end June, the bush (brush) is thick, with a lot of foliage, which makes it difficult to see. The animals have not been shot at that much, and are relatively calm.
July – September, the foliage is down, which makes visibility much better. It is very dry during this time of the year, forcing the animals to visit the waterholes more often, and travel greater distances for grazing.
The Limpopo province has very hot summers and mild winters.
Hunting from March – April, and September – October, you can expect mid day temperatures around the 30 degrees Celsius (85 degrees Fahrenheit). The early morning and late afternoons can be chilly.
Hunting May – August, you can expect mid day temperatures around the 21 degrees Celsius (70 degrees Fahrenheit). The early morning and late afternoons are cold. The night temperature can go down to 0 – 5 degrees Celsius (32 – 42 degrees Fahrenheit)
