Having been to South Africa 7-8 times myself and having planned many trips for clients, I'd argue it's always a trade-off:

- Cape Town, the Cape Peninsula and the Garden Route are probably most enjoyable (or at least most predictable in terms of good weather) during the SA summer (~Nov. - April)

- temperatures are obviously warmer during the SA summer (= NA winter)

- Game viewing is generally better during the SA winter (~May-Sept.) since there's little vegetation and little precipitation, but it can also be rather chilly at night (0C)
