Ts’ehlanyane National Park can be visited throughout the year, but the weather is at its best from October to March (the southern hemisphere summer). These months are warm and wet. Rain might sometimes interfere with hiking, but the dry winter months (April to September) are very cold. The park is most attractive from mid to late summer (December to April) when everything is green.
