Getting There – When and How

“South Africa is a year round destination where you can pursue just about any special interest! Everything from bird-watching to surfing, wine tasting to hiking, shark-cage diving to game watching, all of which are available year-round throughout the entire country.”

“The prime safari areas in South Africa around Kruger National Park are best visited from June through September when the weather is cooler and dry. However, South Africa’s wildlife parks have better infrastructure than most parks in Africa, so rains don’t necessarily mean the roads will be washed out. There are also many excellent game parks in South Africa’s Eastern Cape region which experiences less rain during the winter months than in the north of the country.”

“Airlines that service directly to South Africa from North America include South African Airways and Delta airlines which take 15 hours. Other airlines and routes include Emirates via Dubai, Virgin Atlantic via the UK, KLM via Amsterdam and Air France via Paris.”

“From Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International Airport, there are several shuttle services available into town, as well as the Gautrain, Johannesburg’s high-speed train service created in 2009. While there aren’t any mass transit trains directly routed to Cape Town, there are a variety of reliable shuttles and buses accessible from Cape Town International Airport. Taxis are also readily available at both airports.”

“American and Canadian citizens do not require a visa and may stay in South Africa up to 90 days.”
