Best time to visit Barberton:

Summer (November to February): Summers in Mpumalanga are hot and humid, with occasional afternoon thunderstorms. This period is ideal for wildlife viewing in Kruger National Park and other reserves, as the vegetation is lush. It's also a good time for exploring the Blyde River Canyon and enjoying outdoor activities.

Autumn (March to May): Autumn brings milder temperatures, making it a pleasant time to visit. It's suitable for outdoor activities, hiking, and exploring the cultural attractions. The temperatures are comfortable, and wildlife sightings are still good.

Winter (June to August): Winters in Mpumalanga are dry and mild during the day but can get cold at night, especially in the highlands. It's an excellent time for game viewing as the vegetation thins out, making it easier to spot wildlife. The clear skies are perfect for stargazing.

Spring (September to October): Spring brings warmer temperatures, and the landscapes start to bloom. It's a great time for nature walks, birdwatching, and outdoor exploration. Wildlife activities continue to be good in the game reserves.
