we are in the midst of summer in December, so most places are hot, if in Cape Town, probably windy and dry, if in Johannesburg, hot and possibly rainy, you are looking at temps around 18 nighttime and 25 - 30 C during the day depending on where you are. But in Kruger Park, because it is a lower elevation it can get up to 40C

The weather in Cape Town, during December, is usually quite hot. If you are coming to Cape Town, make sure to bring light clothing and something warm for the unpredictable days.
