South Africa has ten different airports; three are international and receive flights to South Africa while the rest only serve the domestic market. The O.R Tambo International Airport in the capital of Johannesburg is the main airport not only in South Africa, but it also serves as the transport hub for Southern Africa serving 17 million people every year. The Cape Town International Airport in the tourist city of Cape Town is the second largest and holder of the Best African Airport award while the King Shaka International Airport serves the City of Durban after having taken over from the Durban International. Shuttle and car rental services are available from the airports but by far the most popular transportation method is by taxi.
Surrounded by the ocean, South Africa's climate is a mix of Mediterranean in the south west, temperate in the interior and sub-tropical in the northeast and a small patch of desert in the North West. Average temperature is about 17.5C; however summer in the northeast often exceeds 32C, while Cape Town has been known to fall below 0C. The weather varies greatly between the various regions so it's best to be prepared. May to August has the least rain, so this is probably the best time for South Africa flights and holidays.
Buses are the most popular form of transport in South Africa providing reasonable, affordable and comfortable transportation. Travelers are advised to avoid the less appealing minibuses though. With excellent roads, South Africa is ideal for driving and car rental is inexpensive. For travelers wishing to explore all that South Africa has to offer this is the best option. Be warned however that the accident rate in South Africa is quite high. South Africa's Shosholoza Meyl passenger trains offer an excellent service between the various cities but have to be booked 24-hours in advance and with the reliable and top class South African airways also serving the domestic routes, flights to South Africa is a breeze.
The land of Shaka, the gateway to Africa and home to the world's most famous personality, South Africa is a blend of many cultures, giving it the name the Rainbow Nation. Many ancient traditions still live on and with its rich history, beautiful country, top class facilities and amazing wildlife; any visit to South Africa is likely to be imprinted forever.
