What You Need To Know

South Africa is a large country with so much to offer avid travellers. But one of the most loved tourist attractions are the safari experiences – especially with lions involved. From budget options to the more luxurious, South African game reserves offer a bird’s eye view of some of the world’s most prolific wildlife.

Being the third most diverse country in the world makes the options to explore a wide array of natural landscapes, wildlife and climate that much more accessible. The top game reserves in the country are equipped for the most discerning of tastes and in most instances, no expense has been spared to ensure an authentic luxury safari in South Africa.

​Visas: ​Many countries do not require a visa for South Africa. As long as you are not visiting for more than 90 days then you should be good. Be sure to verify this though.

Currency: ​You will use South African Rand. Compared to the USD, Euro and Pound, you should receive a favourable exchange rate. Important to note is that if you are travelling to remote areas, ATM’s may be unavailable, so bringing extra cash with is advisable.

Getting around: South Africa’s public transport system is not ideal in some instances, unless you are travelling on a luxury passenger rail. However, Uber is popular and there are a number of metered taxi operaters throughout the country.

Language: South Africa has 11 official languages, but English is predominantly spoken in all regions. The more remote the region, the less this rule may apply.

Vaccinations: You don’t need any, unless you have been traveling through other countries in the “Yellow Fever Belt” in which case you will be required to show proof of a yellow fever shot.

Malaria is only prevelant in a very small part of South Africa, around the Kruger National Park and KwaZulu Natal. The three main areas for excellent game viewing are Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North West, KwaZulu Natal and the Eastern Cape. However, before deciding that you need to go down the malaria-free route, remember that in South Africa, mosquitos are not usually a year-round concern. There are a number of months (May to mid-September) when it is too cold at night for mosquitos to survive.

​Visit during the winter months when the bush or savannah is sparse and dry. This makes for easier animal spotting.

Comfortable, muted clothes.

A good pair of walking shoes

Sandals

Hat

Long pants

Shorts

A light jacket/jumper (for mild summer evenings)

Warm clothing for winter months – the evenings can get cold.

Generally speaking, the best time to view game is in the dry season when the bush is more sparse and lion are easier to view. This period can stretch anywhere from May-September.

A safari-style holiday: casual and adventurous.
