The most famous national park in the world, the Kruger National Park in the northeast of the country, is one of the most visited nature reserves on earth. South Africa has countless other sights – think of Cape Town, Table Mountain, the Cape of Good Hope, Robben Island or the world-famous Garden Route. And everywhere you look, you discover unique nature with an abundance of wild animals that are hard to find anywhere else.
Enchanted by the beauty of nature and the wild animals
South Africa not only holds these famous sights, but also impresses its visitors with warm-hearted people and an indescribable nature. We would like to bring you closer to the beauty of the landscapes and the colorful fauna on a trip to South Africa. Regardless of whether you prefer to spend the night comfortably in lodges or a little more adventurous in a roof tent, we have the right trip for every taste.
Travel information in brief
The seasons in South Africa are opposite to those in Germany. Generally there is a subtropical climate with many sunny summer days and mild winter weeks. From October to March the temperature rises to over 30 ° C. In the other months it is quite mild and the temperature is around 25 ° C during the day. At night, however, it cools down a bit more at this time. The dry season in the South African winter is suitable for a safari, as the animals are very easy to meet here at the water points.
Currency / money
The local currency is the South African Rand (ZAR), which is divided into 100 cents. In rural areas it is often only possible to pay with cash. In larger cities, you can also pay by credit card in restaurants and hotels. You can withdraw cash with your credit card at ATMs or exchange money at official exchange offices.
No special vaccinations are required when entering from Europe. A yellow fever vaccination is required when entering from areas endemic to yellow fever. The Federal Foreign Office recommends all standard vaccinations as well as vaccinations against hepatitis A and B and, if necessary, a rabies vaccination. In some regions of South Africa there is a risk of malaria. Please contact your doctor or a tropical medicine specialist well in advance of your departure.
Visa / entry
To enter South Africa, you need a passport that must be valid for at least thirty days after your return date. No visa is required for tourist trips of up to ninety days. Upon entry and presentation of a return flight ticket, you will receive a visitor’s permit for the period of the planned trip.
South Africa – of mighty lions and rugged canyons
South Africa is one of the most famous and impressive countries in Africa. It is well developed for tourism and is ideally suited for both South Africa beginners and real South Africa fans who want to explore the country off the beaten track. South Africa is also a popular destination for families, as there is so much for children to discover and with so many wild animals in Africa, you will certainly not be bored.

You can expect the usual standard in South Africa as well as anywhere else in the world.
Many of our trips to South Africa naturally also include the top tourist destinations such as the Kruger National Park, the Garden Route, the Cape of Good Hope, Robben Island or Table Mountain. At the same time, we will work out individual, extraordinary travel routes for you, for example to Lesotho, the Blyde River Canyon, the Kalahari Desert or the South African Wild Coast.
