December holidays for most South African’s begin mid-December. The 14th is when the the Builder’s Holidays begin, and traditionally that signals the start  of the holiday season for most people. 3-4 weeks of uninterrupted summer holiday, with a New Year celebration thrown in for good measure.

The larger travel sites like TripAdvisor suggest that if you’re planning a holiday in high season you should begin your planning around 12 months before you go away, and not any later than 3 months (although this is cutting it close). High season is that time of the year when the largest number of people are looking for somewhere to spend their hard earned break, soaking up the sun, relaxing, and re-invigorating themselves after a long year.
