Winter is a great time to visit the Drakensberg, starting around April/May and up to September. 

The nights are getting cooler and the fireplaces are burning with their warming flames and the smell of wood. 

As summer disappears and becomes a memory, and as the local Autumn somehow came and went, the Winter starts its 4-5 month ebb and flow, now is the time to visit and to experience the dry weather, ideal for walking.
