SURVIVAL GUIDE

SURVIVAL GUIDE

South Africa has an excellent infrastructure and most first time visitors will find touring a surprisingly effortless and pleasurable experience in this African country. First rate safari lodges, hotels, guesthouses and B&Bs are plentiful and getting around is easy with exceptional air services and roads. For those on a more slender budget there are a rapidly escalating number of self catering options and backpacker hostels.

South African local time (Bravo or GMT+2), not to be confused with Zulu time, is 2 hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), also Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) or Zulu time (Z) and operates all year throughout the entire country.

Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Zambia and Namibia are in the same time zone although Namibia changes in winter to UTC+1 from 2am on the 1st Sunday of April until 2am on the 1st Sunday of September.
