South Africa is located on the southern extremity of the African continent, it is diverse in every meaning of the term, from its people to its drastically varying scenery. While the national parks are clearly the main appeal for many visitors, South Africa also has amazing beaches, lush vineyards, mountains, deserts, and much more. South Africa is also fascinating culturally: if you’re passing through Johannesburg, be sure to stop by the Apartheid Museum and the Hector Pieterson Memorial, both of which will give you some insight into the country’s often stormy history.
The country’s three largest airports are in Cape Town, Johannesburg, and Durban, from which scheduled flights to major cities in the United States and around the world are available. The best airport to travel into depends on the type of trip you’re taking. Look for flights into Cape Town from November to March, or to Durban from April to October, when the subtropical Kwazulu Natal coast is at its best. Safaris are available all year; Kruger National Park is a one-hour flight (or four-hour drive) from Johannesburg or a three-hour flight from Cape Town.
