Clothing & Accessories:
Daytime dress is very casual at Mosaic. Dinner is smart casual. Bring walking shoes and a wind jacket, depending on the time of year.
Health & Climate:
Mosaic and the Western Cape of South Africa are completely malaria free.
Summer weather is beautiful: dry, hot during the day, but since we are so close to the ocean our night time temperatures cool off.
Spring and Fall also have beautiful weather and with occasional rain. Spring wild flowers are spectacular and at their peak in September.
Southern Right whales mate and have their young in Walker Bay between June/July and December. The height of whale season is September - November.
Winter (July - August) can have rain but also beautiful days with no wind.
