I'm getting very mixed information about what to expect in SA in December! My friend (who lives in Capetown and whom I'll be visiting)and some "experts" on the various travel boards are warning me it will likely be VERY hot, especially on our road trip to Addo.
Accomodations with air conditioning are generally more expensive along the routes of our travel (and in Addo) but I've been thinking it should still be a priority because of the warning about how hot it will likely be.
But other posts, and a few historical weather sites I'm seeing, say that in December, Capetown averages in the high 70s F (25C) and maybe a few degrees hotter in the mountains. I've been imagining days in the 90s (33C) and nights not a lot cooler.
I know, of course that weather is variable and there can always be a heat wave or a cold spell but can locals chime in here and tell me if you recommend making air-con a priority for our accomodations in Oudtshoorn, Addo an Knysna in the second week of December? Thanks!
