Photography: Due to nature of the safari tour, rugged terrain and extremely dusty conditions,

We would like to urge to carefully pack all sensitive photographic, electronic and filming equipment, preferably in the dust-proof bags.

 

People: South Africans are loud and friendly – genuinely friendly. They’re the ones who will strike up a conversation with the locals in any country they visit. And whenever they come across tourists on their own turf, they’re equally as warm-hearted.

 

Population can be divided into (at least) 11 ethnic groups, the biggest group of which is the Zulu, probably found everywhere in the country. South Africa has 11 officially recognized languages, most of them indigenous dialects.

 

English is widely spoken throughout and is the primary language in cities, commerce, banking, and government. Road signs and official forms are in English and you can expect all hotel staff to speak it fluently.

 

Climate: South Africa enjoys a high number of clear, sunny days. Although varied through different regions, South Africa’s climate is generally mild year-round.

 

Snowfall is limited to the highest mountain peaks and mean annual rainfall comes to a relatively dry 20 inches.

 

CAPE TOWN has a Mediterranean climate – it rains during the winter months and it is chilly. The summer months are dry and warm and can be very windy at times.

 

DURBAN’S climate is almost the same as Miami Florida, hot and humid and rainy in the summer, warm dry days and cool to chilly evenings during the winter months.

 

JOHANNESBURG‘S climate is warm during the summer with most of the rainfall during this time. Because of the heat in Johannesburg in the summer, residents and visitors alike can experience the most spectacular thunder and lightning storms! Winters in Johannesburg are moderate, with dry sunny days and chilly nights.

 

KRUGER NATIONAL PARK – climate during the summertime is hot and humid during the day and cooler in the evenings. Afternoons very often bring thundershowers which tend to refresh the air considerably. Winter weather is warm and dry during the days with chilly evenings and mornings.

Make no mistake, in the winter months the evenings and early mornings can be bitterly cold. If you are on safari during this time, you will need to take very warm clothing especially for early morning game drives.

 

Safety and Security:  Leaving your belongings unattended is not advisable. Be with your driver / guide and/or group to avoid unnecessary issues.

 

Staying safe on Wildlife Viewing Activities: Your safari guide will ensure your safety at all times – listen carefully to instructions and follow the park’s rules at all times. When on a self-drive safari, don’t drive too close to wildlife and only leave your car in designated areas where it is safe to do so.

 

Staying safe in Cities and Towns: South Africa has a high level of crime, including rape and murder. The risk of violent crime to visitors travelling to the main tourist destinations is generally low. The South African authorities prioritise protecting tourists and tourism police are deployed in several towns and cities. Being in numbers and staying with your driver / guide always helps. It may not be safe to venture out post dark alone.
