    General Information

    Climate

    • Most of South Africa is generally mild and sunny throughout the year. The Summer months are from November to March, and the winter months are from May to August. South Africa is a year-round destination with varying regional climates, rain patterns and wildlife opportunities.
    • The dry winter months are a pleasant time of year for wildlife safaris, and the beaches in South Africa are at their finest from December to April. It can be rainy from November to February, but this is the peak season for birding. To spot migrating whales, the best time to visit is between July and October.

    Language & Currency

    • The official languages of South Africa are: Afrikaans, isiNdebele, isiXhosa, isiZulu, Sepedi, Sesotho, Setswana, siSwati, Tshivenda, Xitsonga, and English. Most South Africans fluently speak at least two languages in this multilingual nation.
    • The local currency is the South African rand, which divides into 100 cents. Credit cards are widely accepted. Access to cash machines is available in towns and cities, and exchanging currency can be done in most major banks and foreign exchange bureaus.

    Visa & Access

    • Many foreign nationals do not require a visa for entry to South Africa. Visa-exempt travellers are issued a visitor permit on arrival. Please check with your local South African Embassy or our travel team for further information. Passports must be valid for a minimum of six months and have at least two blank pages for entry and exit formalities.
    • South Africa has three international airports; OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg (JNB), Cape Town International Airport (CPT), and King Shaka International Airport in Durban (DUR).

    Health

    • At least 6-8 weeks before departure, please visit your local health care provider or travel clinic for any vaccination requirements and to discuss any other potential health risks, such as malaria (where applicable). All travellers should ensure they have a comprehensive travel insurance policy in place.
