The winter months are not usually synonymous with planning a holiday. One could be more easily persuaded as to the benefits of hibernation than packing a bag. But a South African winter brings clear blue skies, mild sunny days and sunrises and sunsets that are unsurpassed and majestic. And winter in the bushveld is one of the most spectacular destinations and should not be missed. Mjejane accommodation offers you the key to a unique wild winter adventure in the Bush.


‘Africa – You can see a sunset and believe you have witnessed the hand of God. You watch the slow lope of a lioness and forget to breathe. You marvel at the tripod of a giraffe bent to water. In Africa, there are iridescent blues on the wings of birds that you do not see anywhere else in nature. In Africa, in the midday heat, you can see blisters in the atmosphere. When you are in Africa, you feel primordial, rocked in the cradle of the world.’ [Jodi Piccoult]

We suggest you pack your bags this winter because Jodi Piccoult’s description awaits you at Mjejane accommodation.


The animals come out to play

A safari holiday is all about game viewing. During the winter season at Mjejane accommodation, you will have the best and most dramatic game viewing opportunities. In the southern hemisphere, animals don’t hibernate in winter. And as it is also the dry season, animals come out to play – congregating around the water holes.

The mild winter sun also means the animals do not disappear for afternoon siestas in the shade to escape the midday heat. This means you have unique all-day opportunities to observe wild animals in their natural habitat. You are likely to be afforded close-up views and unique animal interactions. Animal skirmishes are daily occurrences as big and small animals compete for water.

Elephants are very active during winter – pushing over trees in search of nutrient-rich roots to snack on. And, for those with a fear of snakes, you will be relieved to know that during winter they avoid guest appearances. Mosquitoes, too, are absent during these colder months.


The stars shine brighter

Winter safaris mean breath-taking and dramatic night skies. As the temperature drops, snuggle up with comfy blankets, hot water bottles and coffee or sundowners to appreciate the wonder and magic of the African night sky, coupled with the backdrop chorus of nocturnal animals. Stargazing in winter makes you a spectator to the glittering stars, planets and constellations that take centre stage. Make sure you have packed your binoculars for this Milky Way concert.

For a richer stargazing adventure, install the SkyView Free App on your smartphone. Sky View uses your phone’s screen and sensors to identify stars, planets and constellations. Be prepared to be amazed and enthralled.


The crowds are gone

The memories are special

Winter in the African Bush will fill your memory box and photo album with a unique array of stories and anecdotes. Chilly mornings, where you are as snug as a bug in a rug, are ushered in by sunrise hues otherwise not seen, while blazing log fires at night are accompanied by nightcaps, board games and conversation. This is what you get when you escape to Mjejane accommodation in winter.

If you want to go wild this winter – you really don’t have to go far. You just have to go online and book one of the luxury Mjejane accommodation properties. And if you don’t believe us, believe Will Smith when he said, ‘It’s really beautiful. It feels like God visits everywhere else but lives in Africa.’
