Airports in South Africa

Most travellers fly into one of South Africa's largest cities, Johannesburg or Cape Town. Johannesburg is served by the O.R. Tambo International Airport, which is one of the most highly trafficked airports in Africa. Over 25 million passengers pass through the airport each year. Travellers who are planning a wildlife safari in Kruger National Park often fly into Johannesburg to catch onward ground or air connections. If you want to explore the coast of South Africa, Cape Town International Airport is a convenient option. Other cities that have large airports include Durban, Bloemfontein and Port Elizabeth. Each airport has modern facilities. Although South Africa has many official languages, most employees speak fluent English.

Attractions in South Africa

With its abundant natural wonders and friendly culture, South Africa is growing in popularity. The country has a remarkably diverse population, and the different ethnic groups celebrate their heritage each year with colourful festivals. Some of the most popular sites in the country are clustered on the south-western coast around Cape Town. There, you can ride a bike around the Cape of Good Hope, ride a cable car up Table Mountain for panoramic views or lower yourself into a cage in the ocean and watch sharks swim in the open water. In the north-eastern corner of the country, the Kruger National Park attracts people who are looking to spot the Big Five on safari: buffalo, elephants, leopards, lions and rhinos.
