What to know

Climate & when to visit

South Africa can be visited comfortably any time of the year, as winters are not severe. Of course, it will still be too chilly for swimming, so you may prefer to visit during Spring or Summer:

Spring: September to October
Summer: November to March
Autumn: April to May
Winter: June to August

Don’t Leave Home Without:

  • Binoculars for wildlife-watching and a camera for taking great photographs
  • An appetite for local food
  • Reading up on malaria if you’ll be travelling into malarial areas. Gauteng is Malaria Free!

Money

South Africa’s currency is the rand (R), which is divided into 100 cents. The coins are five, 10, 20 and 50 cents, and R1, R2 and R5. The notes are R10, R20, R50, R100 and R200. There have been forgeries of the R200 note, and some businesses are reluctant to accept them.

The best currencies to bring are US dollars, euros or British pounds in a mixture of travellers cheques and cash, plus a Visa or MasterCard for withdrawing money from ATMs.

There are ATMs in all cities in South Africa, most of which give cash advances against cards belonging to the Cirrus network.

Credit cards are widely accepted in South Africa, especially MasterCard and Visa.

Crime

Crime is a problem worldwide, and apart from car accidents, it’s the major risk that you’ll face when visiting South Africa.

However, try to keep things in perspective, and remember that despite the statistics and newspaper headlines, the majority of travellers visit our country without incident.

The risks are highest in Jo’burg, followed by some township areas and other urban centres.
