Getting There Johannesburg with its O.R. Tambo International Airport is the air transport hub of Southern Africa and is linked to the rest of the world by major airlines. Other international airports are located in Cape Town and Durban, but few flights from Europe or America fly directly to either destination. There is a good network of internal flights.

Travelling around South Africa is mostly by car and a good range of car rental companies are available. The road system is amongst the best in Africa. However, travelling off the beaten track to the national parks is virtually impossible by public transport. This is mostly organised by local tour operators.

When to go The best time to visit Kruger and most wildlife parks in South Africa is from May to September. This is the dry season and animals congregate around waterholes and rivers. The climate of South Africa is generally mild throughout the country with warm, sunny days and cool nights. There's really not a bad time to visit, but winter is a good time (especially October) if you are going for a safari – grass is short, and the animals tend to gather around watering holes.

In winter, due to altitude, temperatures drop to the freezing point, and in places even lower. Snow is a possibility June-August in the mountain areas. It generally rains in the afternoon during the summer (November-February) everywhere in the country except in the Cape Province, where it rains during the winter.
