The average annual rainfall at Berakah Eco Trails is approximately 625mm, of which 80% falls in summer. Warm to hot summer days an average of 30ºC is alternated by night temperatures of 15ºC and warmer. Mid winter days are approximately 18ºC, while the nights are cold and can reach freezing point. The granite koppies retain much of the day heat during winter nights, with the result that frost-sensitive plant species grow on the slopes and summits. Winds are seldom and mild.
