... the rich, diverse environment of Palm Springs ...



The climate for the area is mild to warm and humid, tending towards sub-tropical. Most of the rainfall occurs during the spring and summer months.  Average annual temperatures range between 8°C ­ 26°C in the Great Kei area and between 13°C ­ 25°C in the Buffalo City area.  The spring months generally tend to be the windiest months with May to June being the calmest months. Berg winds tend to be common once or twice a year, otherwise prevailing winds are westerly or easterly.  Humidity is fair, being a coastal region, but nowhere as high as Durban.  Frost and hail are rare, snow has never been recorded in the area, but can be seen during the winter in the Hogsback area.  This region is both malaria and bilharzia free.

  • Bushbuck
  • Blue Duiker

  • Hare
  • Vervet Monkey
