Our cruise ends in Mauritus on 3rd January 2015, we plan to stay on there for a few days before going on a 2 week tour of Kwa Zulu. ( Drakensberg, Battlefields, Umfolozi, St Lucia, North Durban for beach) I now realise that school is not back until around the 14th Jan. in SA , so our holidays would overlap for a week.
Am I correct in thinking that the coast will be very crowded as the school holidays are still on, even at the higher budget level places. ?
Our plan B is to fly home to the UK and come back to SA mid Feb. However, the weather info. states that in Kwa Zulu most rain falls April- Oct. and also Jan. - Feb. This seems like a lot of rain. Can I expect short storms (1-2 hours) in Feb. or days of rain and drizzle ? I appreciate that the mountainous regions are prone to rain at any time.
