About South Africa
South Africa is located at the southern tip of the African continent.
It is a country almost 3.5 times as large as Germany and divided in 9 provinces.
South Africa recognizes 11 official languages, among them English (commonly used language in tourism and trade) and Afrikaans (originated mainly from Dutch). Due to its multiethnic society the country is often referred to as the Rainbow Nation.
South Africa is considered as an upper-middle-income economy or “take off country” and offers the tourist great infrastructure and unforgettable landscape and scenery.
Being in the southern hemisphere it shows the exact opposite seasons to Europe, meaning South Africans celebrate Christmas and New Year in their summer holidays.
The climate in a nutshell is Mediterranean in the Cape, moderate in the interiors and subtropical in KwaZulu Natal right up to the Kruger Park. Thanks to a (very) fair share of sunshine during the entire year (it is even more than on the Canary Islands!), the travel period to the Cape is year round, but in our view the best months are October to April.
South Africa offers a wealth of varied and stunningly beautiful holiday destinations like the vibrant city and surroundings of Cape Town, the lush green stretch of coastline along the Garden Route, the arid and spacious Karoo, the impressive Drakensberg Moutains and the vast Kruger Park and many other exciting game reserves.
Self-Driving is very popular in South Africa and the roads and signage is very good throughout the most of the country.
Traffic is often minimal once you are out of cities and its surroundings, and signage as well as the roads are good.
We often use the term “sunny South Africa” and indeed it is!
Plenty of sunshine throughout the year and comparatively low annual rainfall – this and the fact that we have summer during the European winter draws a lot of visitors to the country!
