May is great time of year to surfari around South Africa, especially if you're headed north. The land and sea temperatures get warmer as you venture further away from the Cape. The winter storms start to roll in fanning swell up the East Coast producing beautiful line ups.
We were fortunate to have 5 weeks on the road exploring our unspoilt country and coastline starting in Kruger dipping into Mozambique and then snaking along the coast from Durban all the way back to our home, Cape Town. When the surf forecast looked unfavourable, we'd head inland to explore the snow capped highlands of the Drakensberg, the incredible wildlife of the Kruger and the craft beer breweries of the Midlands.
Below are a few images that capture the highlights of our 5 week South African Surfari:
