When To Cruise Africa

In my free time, I check out cruise sites to see what is offered for Africa.

I usually only find trips that stop for a while in South Africa and they are usually in the off-season, November through February. The best time to travel to South Africa is in April, May, September or October.

Why don’t most cruise lines offer trips in the spring or summer for Africa?  I am really confused.

The exception seems to be Silverseas.
