Berakah Climate, Birds and Game


The average annual rainfall at Berakah Eco Trails is approximately 625 mm, of which 80 % falls in summer. Warm to hot summer days averages at 32ºC and is alternated by night temperatures of 18ºC and warmer. Mid winter days are approximately 18ºC, while the nights are cold and can reach temperatures below zero. The granite mountainous areas retain much of the days' heat during winter nights, causing some frost-sensitive plant species to grow on the slopes and summits.
