Credit card companies and banks in the UK sometimes place travel restrictions on cards so be sure to find out if these need to be lifted before you get to South Africa.

Getting Around – South Africa drivers drive on the left and when you fill up with petrol it is usual for an attendant to help you. Car rental is the preferable choice although if necessary public transport is available, if a little limiting.

Accommodation – Hotel bookings must be made in advance as there will be hundreds of thousands of people looking for places to stay. Camping is not advisable due to the cold weather at the time of the year.
