South Africa Overview

Why travel to South Africa? 
Described as “a world in one country” South Africa is more than just a safari destination. The wildlife of Kruger and the many private reserves throughout the country are complemented by South Africa’s fascinating history and diverse cultures, the beautiful coastline and majestic landscapes of the Cape. 

 When is the best time to view animals in South Africa?
Gameviewing is best during the dry season (May-Oct); however the summer months are good for general touring and sightseeing. 

What is the culture of South Africa? 
There are many different cultures including Zulu, Swazi, Xhosa, Indian, Cape Malay and European. As a result, there are many unique culinary dishes as well as distinct music and dance. Elegant Cape Dutch architecture is also a highlight of South Africa’s cape. 

What is the climate in South Africa? 
The inland plateau has a temperate climate (17°-30°C), whilst the coast is subtropical and more humid (22°-30°C). The seasons are the same as Australia, however most of the rain falls in summer. Winters are dry and sunny, but nights can be very cold. The Western Cape is the exception, with a “Mediterranean” climate – cool, wet winters and warm dry summers (17°-24°C). 

What can I combine South Africa with?
South Africa is easily combined with neighbouring Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Mozambique, Zambia or the nearby tropical island of Mauritius. Johannesburg is a very popular gateway to most of southern and eastern Africa.  

How to get to South Africa?
Many major airlines including South African Airways, Qantas, Etihad, Emirates, Kenya Airways, Qatar, Singapore Airways and British Airways fly into Johannesburg OR Tambo International Airport. There are also many regional and domestic carriers that service local cities such as Cape Town and the Kruger National Park area. 

US – South African Airways fly’s directly to east coast cities including New York and Washington. Delta Airlines is another option to consider flying directly to Johannesburg from Atlanta.
