My green world

South Africa is a diverse country with 9 provinces, which range from mountains and beaches to deserts and bushveld. Along with the variety of people and places, South Africa’s climate also differs from one region to the next.

Some provinces have summer rainfall, with warm days and cooling showers in the late afternoon. Others have scorching hot summers and windy, wet winters.

Western Cape

The Western Cape is a winter rainfall area. Summers are hot (very hot) and dry, while winters are wet and windy.

Ōtarawairere Beach New Zealand

Otarawairere is the hidden jewel of the Whakatāne-Ōhope area. This secluded beach is accessible only on foot or by kayak, but the trip is definitely worth the effort. Pohutukawa trees on a beach of stone and crushed seashells, and the warm waters of the Pacific lap quietly against the shore, creating an unrivalled, peaceful atmosphere.
