South Africa is a country located in the southernmost part of the African continent. It is a beautiful country with a diverse landscape, ranging from the majestic Table Mountain to the lush green gardens of Kirstenbosch. The climate in South Africa is also varied, with the coastal regions being temperate and the inland regions being hot and dry.

December is one of the hotter months in South Africa, with the average temperature ranging from 24-26 degrees Celsius. However, it is not uncommon for the temperature to exceed 30 degrees Celsius, especially in the inland regions. The hot weather is ideal for spending time on the beach or taking part in outdoor activities.

Despite the high temperatures, there is always a cool breeze blowing off the ocean which makes the heat bearable. December is also an excellent month for wildlife watching, as the animals are active and the vegetation is lush.

If you are planning to visit South Africa in December, be sure to pack plenty of sunscreen and hats to protect yourself from the strong sun.
