Vioolsdrif is more humid than you may believe though: evaporation off the Orange River being the cause. Experienced this for myself when I used the nearby canoeing base camp on the Namibian side as an overnight rest stop one January.Thank goodness for low humidity, at least in the interior of SA. These temps would be unbearable with the crazy high humidity of East Asia for example. Hitting 98%+ easily during summer.
Definitely not East Asian (or Durban) level humidity, but there's a noticeable difference between the Orange River valley and the surrounding area.
