cheers and see you when I get there
Its not bad at all, the Cape has a typically winter rainfall so its only the NE part of the country that gets rain. Mostly its sunshine with some rain sometimes in the the afternoon, perhaps 20 wet, miserable, rainy days per year at most so youre good to go! Be prepared for anything just in case, which after your South American travels should be pretty easy. It'll be mostly hot.

Everyone has a max speed, 90% of that max speed is much safer and easier, and if that 90% speed isn't fast enough at Dakar, you enter the snowball. - neduro
