DON'T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

WHAT TO EAT & DRINK IN SOUTH AFRICA

Grilled sausages, rich sandwiches and hearty stews… it seems like South African food was made for comfort and we’ll show you where to find all the best eats.

Boerewors

The name comes from a mix of Afrikaans and Dutch words - boer (farmer) and wors (sausage) - and this traditional South African sausage is made with a mix of minced lamb, beef or pork. Flavoured with spices and grilled on the barbecue, they don’t get much better than this.

Bunny Chow

If you’re keen to try some South African street food, you can’t miss out on this beloved sandwich. It’s made using a hollowed-out loaf of bread filled with a spicy curry and you can find it at street stalls all over the country. If you really fall in love with bunny chow, you can even buy it by the loaf.

WHEN IS BEST TO VISIT SOUTH AFRICA

12 months of the year, there's no bad time to visit. Whether you want to go on safari in the bushveld, explore the lush vineyards, or swim in the tropical coast, here are our favourite times to visit South Africa.

Best Time To Go on a South Africa Safari

Head to South Africa during the dry season of May to September, when temperatures are cooler and there’s better wildlife spotting as the animals congregate around the shrinking waterholes and rivers.

Best time to explore the garden route

The best time to drive the awe-inspiring road from Cape Town to Hermanus to Knysna is the summer, spring and autumn seasons from September to May for sunny beaches, whale spotting and blooming vineyards.

HOW TO TRAVEL RESPONSIBLY IN SOUTH AFRICA

Learn About South Africa’s Past

It’s important to travel with an understanding of South Africa’s history and the complexities of its past. The Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg and the District Six Museum in Cape Town are both excellent experiences to learn more about past wars and present reconciliation.

Support the National Parks and Game Reserves

Many of South Africa’s national parks and reserves suffer at the hands of illegal poaching. By visiting these natural parks and seeing animals in the wild, your entry supports vital conservation and anti-poaching initiatives.

Learn the Language

Although many people speak English in South Africa, there are eleven official languages, with Zulu being the most common. It’s worth learning a few words in Afrikaans and you’ll get extra appreciation for offering a greeting in the relevant tribal language.
