Important advice before traveling to South Africa

| |

South Africa is one of the favorite tourist destinations for many around the world, because it contains a lot to offer to its visitors, whether we are talking about picturesque natural areas and national parks that organize for their visitors wonderful safari trips, charming beaches, shopping areas and other wonderful tourist places that are worth a visit But, before you start planning your next tourist trip in South Africa, there are a bunch of things to consider in order to enjoy a wonderful and safe tourist trip in South Africa.

Here are a host of important tips before traveling to South Africa:

  • Consider the fact that the country of South Africa has a large area and that there are long miles separating its cities and the different tourist destinations within it so that you plan your tourist trip in South Africa on this basis, for example a car trip between Johannesburg and Cape Town takes more than 13 hours by car .
  • Don’t book your trip tickets to Table Mountain too early, so don’t be surprised by a sudden change in weather on your trip to Table Mountain that you booked several weeks before that prevents you from making your trip as you planned.
  • Be sure to conserve water while you are in South Africa, especially in cities with severe water shortages such as Cape Town so as not to offend the local population.
  • Don’t worry about drinking pine water in South Africa because it is among the cleanest and least polluted in Africa and the world.
  • Make sure to check the weather well before going on a safari trip so that you can prepare clothes that are appropriate to the nature of the weather.
  • Consider the fact that the evening weather in South Africa tends to be cold and pack appropriate sleepwear in your travel bags on this basis.
  • Make sure to give workers in the restaurants that you visit or the hotel you reside in a tip that ranges between 10-15% of the value of the service bill provided in order to get better service and appreciation from the workers.
  • Do not give beggars on the streets of South Africa cash because they are usually used to buy drugs or alcohol. If you want help, give them food or donate to a famous charity in South Africa.
  • Avoid wearing expensive clothes and expensive jewelry in South Africa and do not carry a mobile phone or camera in your hand while roaming the streets of South Africa to avoid pickpockets and theft.
  • Remember to close your car doors well before and after you leave them so that you do not fall victim to car thefts that are widespread in South Africa.
  • Do not walk alone on secluded beaches or on hiking trails in parks or public parks for your own safety.
  • Do not accept help from strangers when you use ATMs so that you do not fall victim to one of the tourists’ theft in front of an ATM in South Africa.
  • Do not forget to visit your private doctor and obtain the necessary vaccinations, especially malaria vaccine, before traveling to South Africa. While most areas of South Africa are free of malaria, there are a number of areas that still suffer from the risk of malaria in South Africa, such as the Kruger National Park.
  • Remember to drive your car on the left side of the road in South Africa (which also applies to the United Kingdom, Japan, Australia, New Zealand) and not on the right side of the road.
  • Do not try to feed animals during safari trips or within nature reserves in South Africa because the animals there are wild and not domesticated and familiar to humans as is the case in zoos and you may try to wring and steal the food you carry violently if you approach them in an attempt to feed them.
