We normally take a winter sun holiday in January and I was wondering if this is a good time to visit this location?
Perfect time. Still super hot so good for the beach. Lots of rain up north but refreshing tropical rain that comes and goes. Also a good time because many of the South African hoards have gone home. Would definitely be a good time to explore the southern beaches...or even the north if you're adequately patient.
I'm thinking of going in November this year. Good idea or not?
November is also fine for travelling. It's before the huge South African crowds, and it's starting to approach summer.
