Weather | Climate

Sediba experiences year round warm weather, with very hot conditions in the height of summer (December – February). During the winter months it can be chilly at night and in the early morning. In March it will be just after rainy season, and therefore slightly humid, with cool mornings and evenings on a game drive. The average high temperature for March is 32 degrees celsius; the average low is 19 degrees celsius. Their is a low possibility of afternoon thunderstorms.

Visa

You do not need a Visa to South Africa in advance – you will receive one upon arrival at Johannesburg International Airport.

Immunizations

Most guests attend without immunizations, however you can find a list of recommended immunizations by the CDC.  Sediba is in a moderate/low risk malaria area. The chances of contracting malaria are very unlikely, but it is advised to bring plenty of mosquito repellent. The lodge will also provide room sprays, body repellent, and mosquito nets.

Safety

On game reserves it is 100% safe with 24/7 armed security. In large cities, everyday crime is an issue, so we recommend taking common-sense precautions when transiting through Johannesburg. Please note that South Africa has no recent history of terrorism.

Yoga Props

We provide you with a yoga mat. If you have a particular mat that you use and love, please feel free to bring it! We will have no props (blocks/cushions/straps) with us, so if you know you need something in particular for your practice, please feel bring it with you.
