To make our trip as cheap as possible, the ideal is to book accommodation in advance. This can be done in any of the web pages or applications intended for it. You can set filters by location or price to make the search faster and easier.

Transport, like accommodation, the sooner we leave it closed, the better. With regard to the plane, if we want to save money,  we must opt ​​for a low cost company or flights with a stopover .

It is also advisable to book trains or other means of transport that we need to take to move within the country, in the case of wanting to visit more than one city.

Before traveling to South Africa, you must be clear about what you are going to visit or what activities you are going to do. It is essential to leave everything tied in advance and avoid missing an interesting tourist plan. Do not forget that this country offers endless possibilities.

One of the most attractive plans is to visit Cape Town  and climb Table Mountain. Another interesting city is Johannesburg, where you can take a tour of Soweto. Equally recommended is the excursion to Robben Island, the island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned.

If you are looking to be in contact with nature, there is nothing like going on a safari through the Kruger National Park. Or go whale watching off the coast of Hermanus. You can also go to the beach (Camps Bay, Cape Vidal, Muizenberg or Walker Bay) or see how the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean merge at Cape Agujas.

Choose the best time to go

Southern Africa has a more temperate tropical climate than the rest of the continent. Likewise, it is characterized by having two distinct seasons: a dry one, which lasts from April to October; and another rainy one, which occurs between the months of November and March.

So what is the best time to travel to South Africa? It all depends on our plans. In this way, if we want to go on safari or visit a national park, it is best to do it from April to October. If, on the other hand, we plan to go to the beach, it is convenient to travel between November and March.

Take some money changed

The official currency of the country is the South African rand, which is equivalent to about 63 euro cents. To change it we can go to our usual bank, the airport or some exchange office already in the destination. We can also choose to buy with a credit card, but knowing in advance the commission that they will charge us.

Once there, be cautious

It is no secret that poverty and social inequality exist in South Africa. Crime is a national obsession, although tourists rarely suffer mishaps. This does not mean that a series of precautions must be taken, such as storing travel documents and valuables in a safe place.

It is also recommended to divide and store the cash in several places. Avoid unsafe or isolated areas, both during the day and at night. And it is advisable not to carry mobile phones or very ostentatious objects, such as jewelry. In short, always apply common sense.

Travel only with what is necessary

We always tend to carry more luggage than we really need. For this reason, and in order to travel as less loaded and as comfortable as possible, it is best to forget about the unforeseen events that may occur and pack only the essentials.

Following all these tips, we have no doubt that traveling to South Africa will be an unforgettable experience. There is nothing like leaving everything perfectly tied before embarking on the adventure and making the right decisions.
