How do you get to South Africa?

As a rule, the quickest, cheapest and most comfortable way to get to South Africa from Europe is by plane.


Direct flights go from Frankfurt/Main and Zurich to Cape Town and from Frankfurt/Main, Munich and Zurich to Johannesburg. Other international airports are located in Bloemfontein, Durban, Port Elizabeth, George and Pretoria (Tshwane).

The largest and most important airports in the country are:

Most accommodations offer an airport transfer, otherwise it is advisable to book a transfer as there are no bus or train connections.


The largest shipping ports are Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth and East London. Passenger ships run regularly from Cardiff in Wales via Tenerifeto Cape Town. In addition, passengers are also carried by some cargo ships, including from Hamburg.


There are train connections to South Africa from Zimbabwe, Botswana and Mozambique, among others. The main highways lead into the country from Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia. However, overland trips should only be carried out during the day due to the high crime rate.

Air connections

Domestic air connections exist between Cape Town, Durban, Pretoria, Port Elizabeth, East London, Kimberley and Bloemfontein as well as various provincial cities.


Between the (larger) cities of South Africa, air-conditioned buses run by various bus companies, with SA Roadlink in particular offering unbeatable prices. But it is always worthwhile to get other offers. This is quite easy, because all the major providers have offices at the respective bus stations and are therefore easy to contact. The largest and best-known bus companies include:

Greyhound – Tel. 0027 – (0) 83 – 915 9000

Baz Bus

An excellent alternative to travel around South Africa is the now famous Baz Bus. This is a company with headquarters in Cape Town that has set itself the task of driving backpackers (in a minibus for between 20 and 26 people) through the country as comfortably and easily as possible. The advantage of this bus service is that the Baz buses pick up travelers directly from their hostels and then drop them off directly in front of their new hostels. This saves a lot of time and stress and is very well tailored to the realities of travel in South Africa. If you want to travel back and forth between two South African cities without a Baz Bus (overland), you first have to go to the respective (bus) station to book a ticket for the desired period. That means taking a taxi or a minibus, whereby taxis are very expensive and minibus trips are often a bit confusing and time-consuming. On the day of departure, you can either let the hostel shuttle take you to the bus station or you take a taxi again – minibuses are less recommended, especially in Johannesburg. There is therefore not really an alternative, because it is not recommended to walk around South Africa (long distances) with too much luggage. The risk of becoming a victim of a crime is then much higher than normal. But both taxis and shuttles are quite expensive, depending on the location of the hostel. When you have finally reached your destination after a long bus or train ride, you still have to get to the new hostel. This means that you have to be picked up by an expensive hostel shuttle or use a taxi.

Not only is this type of travel expensive and time consuming, it is also stressful.

With the Baz Bus, all of this is unproblematic, especially since you can already book the ticket from Germany by credit card. You will then receive a confirmation as well as a ticket number, which you then give to the bus driver in South Africa before departure. You can book certain travel routes (e.g. Cape Town – Port Elizabeth), but also 1-week or 2-week passes. If you are in the country, you simply call the Baz Bus hotline (Tel.: 0027 – (0) 21 – 439 2323) or send an SMS with the travel details to 072 427 3003. This is how you reserve (48 hours in advance if possible Departure) his seats in the bus and then only needs to get on the bus punctually on the day of departure. However, you should have pre-booked a hostel in the target area by telephone in order to save yourself stress.

The Baz Bus has other advantages, however, because it is a friendly, communicative way of traveling, so that it will be easy to get into conversation with other fellow travelers and to exchange tips and stories. Furthermore, the buses are driven by tested and certified drivers, who also give explanations about the areas that you pass on the way. The extent to which the driver provides the travelers with hints, tips and information, of course, always depends on the person concerned. Another advantage is that the Baz Bus also travels to Swaziland and the border with the Kruger National Park.

There are also disadvantages with regard to the Baz bus: There is (currently) no air conditioning in the buses, which can be quite annoying, especially in summer. In addition, the trips are quite expensive compared to the rest of the country. So you should always consider whether you really need the Baz Bus, or whether it would not be cheaper (and more exciting) to travel “on your own”, because you will hardly come into contact with the South African population. Another disadvantage is that the Baz buses do not run the routes offered daily, but only on certain days. So you have to align your travel plan with the Baz Bus, which can be annoying.

Then the journey goes back the 6,000 km long distance.

Roads and rental cars

South Africa has approximately 74,000 km of paved roads. Road conditions are good in the inhabited regions. Motorways have been built between some major cities such as Johannesburg and Durban. Overland trips are only recommended during the day due to the country’s high crime rate. In addition, trips to the rural parts of the KwaZulu-Natal Province and through the so-called Transkei in the Eastern Cape Province should be made on the main roads if possible because of the high crime rate.

Information from the Federal Foreign Office

According to official statistics, there are around 100 murders and attempted murder in South Africa every day, around 130 rapes, 575 cases of (serious) bodily harm and around 655 break-ins.

General information from the Foreign Office (AA)

“South Africa has high crime rates compared to Germany, especially in the big cities and their peripheral areas. This also includes crimes involving the use of physical violence, even if the majority of violent crime takes place in areas and under certain circumstances, which usually do not affect German holiday or business travelers, it cannot be ruled out that German travelers become the target and victim of theft, break-ins, robbery and similar crimes.

Good preparation and sensible behavior that minimizes risk can reduce the likelihood of being victims becoming a criminal offense in South Africa “.

In particular, the AA advises

— The inner cities of Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban and Cape Town and other large cities should be avoided after business hours; On Sundays and public holidays you should only go into the city centers in groups. Greater caution is also advised during the day. Pay attention and be careful when visiting townships. City tours as well as township visits should take place in an organized manner and only with a local guide.

– For trips to publicly accessible natural areas and national parks (e.g. on Table Mountain in Cape Town) and to well-known sights of South Africa (e.g. Rhodes Memorial, Cape Town) one should not use lonely hiking trails and avoid inanimate areas. For individual travelers, it is generally advisable to look for a connection with the larger tour groups that are usually available on site.

– We advise against using the suburban trains in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban and partly in Cape Town. If the trains are used anyway, it is advisable to travel in 1st class and only during rush hour during the day.

– Taxis should be reserved if possible with reliable, well-known companies. As a rule, hotels and inns will help with the reservation. Backpackers should ensure safe accommodation and safe transportation. Relevant travel guides give recommendations for backpacker hostels; nevertheless, caution is advised.

– We strongly advise against hitchhiking and so-called minibus taxis. Drinks offered by strangers in bars or restaurants should not be accepted. Cases in which “knockout drops” are added are also reported in South Africa.

— Because of the risk of vehicle hijacking (so-called “car-jacking”) and so-called “smash-and-grab” attacks, the car windows should always be closed and the doors always locked from the inside. Handbags, cameras, etc. should not be visible in the car. When waiting at major intersections in the larger cities, you should be attentive and observe your surroundings. It is advisable to keep a sufficient distance from other vehicles when stopping so that you can drive away if necessary.

– In view of the poor condition of many secondary roads throughout the country, especially in the central rural parts of the Kwazulu-Natal Province and through the so-called Transkei in the Eastern Cape Province, it is recommended to use main roads as far as possible. There, as in the rest of the country, cross-country trips should no longer be undertaken after dark, as car breakdowns, poor roads with potholes, insufficiently signposted and secured construction sites and animals on the roadway after dark pose a significant safety risk.

– It is not advisable to stop at viewpoints or rest areas if there are no other tourists in sight.

– Be very careful at ATMs. In addition to simple robbery and trick theft, tampering with ATMs and misuse of card data are increasing. It is recommended not to lose sight of credit cards when making payments. It is common practice in many restaurants to use portable credit card readers. If this does not exist, the credit card should be accompanied to the payment system.

— For security reasons, it is recommended to have a mobile phone with you for the duration of your stay. German mobile phones with roaming functionality can be used nationwide. ”

ATM scams

Travelers are most “vulnerable” in South Africa when they withdraw money from an ATM. Not only can uninvited observers hear large sums being withdrawn, but also very sophisticated tricks can be used to get your card and PIN. A popular trick is to tweak the ATM beforehand: you enter your cash card, press the PIN – someone is watching you inconspicuously – and after entering the amount of money your card is not returned.

If you then move away from the machine and seek help from the bank staff at the bank, etc., your card miraculously reappears and is taken along with the amount of money by someone else who can now withdraw money from your account for as long as possible until you (or your bank) have the card blocked. It is also popular to “help” you with withdrawing money. That means that several or only one person tells you with quick commands what you have to do and which button you have to press. This is intentionally made somewhat opaque and chaotic Situation, however, someone takes your card and holds it in seconds to a kind of small scanner that contains a blank card, which enables a duplicate of your card.

Your PIN is also spied out by manipulating the ATM. You do not notice anything and are not even surprised, because you will receive your card, the desired amount of money and even your receipt back. However, you will later be amazed at the numerous (sometimes only small) withdrawals that have been made from your account on your behalf.

If you notice something like this, contact your bank immediately and have your card blocked. When you return to your home country, you go to the police and report it. With this report you then go to your bank, which is reinsured and will most likely reimburse the injured party for the money.

Tips for using the cash machine (ATM)

Only use ATMs in banks and shopping malls, and if you use other ATMs, be careful and avoid withdrawing money there at night. If (suspicious) people are in the machine area, cancel the process and go to another machine. If someone wants to “help” you, refuse – if necessary in an unfriendly manner – cancel the process and go to another ATM. If you use an ATM and want to be absolutely sure, then press immediately after entering the card the button for “Cancel”. When your card comes out again, the machine is safe.

Crime in Johannesburg

Nowhere in South Africa is crime as high as in Johannesburg. Meanwhile, more people are murdered here every year than are killed in traffic accidents, for example. Johannesburg is probably the most dangerous city in the world. After the abolition of apartheid at the beginning of the 1990s, thousands of poor, mostly black immigrants from the townships streamed into downtown Johannesburg. There was soon a significant overpopulation: the infrastructure of the city was immeasurably overwhelmed, as a result, the crime rate rose sharply and many of the whites migrated from the now dangerous center to the suburbs. The city administration is trying to rebuild the city center. Countless surveillance cameras have been installed and other measures have been taken to reduce crime. As the police statistics make clear, the crime rate has actually slowly declined in the last few years of the economic boom. It can also be assumed that further efforts will be made to make the city safer in the course of the 2010 World Cup.

Johannesburg’s bad reputation as a crime hotspot comes mainly from the central business district and townships. You can still visit the CBD as the actual center of the city, but you should definitely inquire beforehand in the hostel or hotel how the security situation in the respective areas is to be assessed and which areas are to be avoided. The districts of Hillbrow and Yeoville in the city center are definitely unsafe. But also when visiting other areas of the Central Business District you should definitely be as few as possible equipped with objects that might attract attention. It is best to avoid (expensive-looking) watches, backpacks, branded items and the like.

Anyone who is out and about in downtown Jo’burg without conspicuous valuables will certainly hardly come into contact with crime and in most cases encounter the security problem in virtual form, if one is immediately made aware of the entire region in the hotel or hostel that one shouldn’t enter. Unfortunately, it is often difficult to say to what extent a lot is scaremongering and exaggerated. Many travelers are so unsettled by the horror reports that they cannot freely experience the city, which is a shame, because Johannesburg is more than a stopover on the way to Cape Town or the Kruger National Park. Anyone who has overcome their fear of the lively and turbulent city center will find themselves in this interesting city, where modernity and colonial times shake hands, feel quite comfortable. As in other large cities, it is never particularly advisable to walk around with the tourist insignia of the oversized city map, the digital camera and the slouch hat. It is better to behave as if you know your way around and know where you are. It is therefore advisable to stop in a restaurant or café to take a look at the city map. You can also ask locals for directions, but you shouldn’t speak to anyone on the street, but rather go to the drivers of the minibuses, who do not always speak good English, but usually do their best to help you.

You can also ask locals for directions, but you shouldn’t speak to anyone on the street, but rather go to the drivers of the minibuses, who do not always speak good English, but usually try very hard to help you.

You can also ask locals for directions, but you shouldn’t speak to anyone on the street, but rather go to the drivers of the minibuses, who do not always speak good English, but usually do their best to help you.

If there should be problems with crime, it is mostly a question of pickpockets, as they also occur in other metropolises of comparable size. It is therefore advisable not to carry too much cash with you and to keep the sums you need in different pockets. Other valuables should be left in the hotel safe or stowed securely on the body and not visible to everyone. Should you find yourself in a situation in which someone wants to take your valuables away by force, do not resist and hand everything over – immediately! A few hundred rand isn’t worth risking your health or life.

Out and about in townships

It is possible as a tourist to take guided tours through the individual townships. Going it alone is not recommended, cameras and other objects that testify to western prosperity should not be openly shown. After dark, special care is required and it is advisable never to go alone. Even on Sundays, when the center becomes deserted, like after business hours, no tourist should be alone or in a group that is too small without a local guide. Using the suburban trains can also be dangerous; you should travel in rush hour and, if possible, in 1st class.

Certain rules must also be observed with taxis: in any case, they should be ordered by telephone from reliable and well-known companies. It is not advisable to hitchhike or to stop minibus taxis on the road. Because of the risk of vehicle hijacking and so-called “smash-and-grab” attacks, the windows in the car should always be closed and the doors locked from the inside. Handbags, cameras, etc. should not be visible in the car. If a visitor drives to the more rural province in a car, he should, if possible, use the main roads, after dark it is generally better not to take any more journeys. It is not advisable to stop at lookout points or rest areas if there are no other tourists to be seen. It is advisable,


Drugs such as dagga or zol, which means mirihuana, were once an important part of the Xhosa-San trade. Nowadays, however, this drug is banned, although still widely used. On the street, visitors are often offered soft drugs, but also other rather hard drugs. Getting weak and stocking up is strongly discouraged as the penalties for possessing and consuming drugs of all kinds in South Africa are severe. Although marijuana is consumed in hostels in particular, South African law does not distinguish between soft and hard drugs. Drugs like ecstasy, cocaine and heroin are also illegal, albeit widespread. In addition, South Africa holds the dubious reputation of being the world’s largest market for the Mandrax barbiturate:

!!! Steer clear of drugs of any kind!

South Africa: Travel Medicine, Vaccinations and Warnings

Infectious Diseases

In South Africa, the following infectious diseases are to be expected, which are not or less common in Germany or Central and Northern Europe:

  • Malaria: There is an increased risk of malaria infection year-round in the following areas:In the plains of Mpumalanga Province to the east, including Kruger National Park and neighboring parks, the North Province and the northeast of Kwazulu-Natal. Over 90% of the infections occur with the very dangerous malaria tropica, the rest with malaria tertiana.
  • HIV, AIDS, around 5.5 million people in the country are infected with the HI virus. A tremendous number!
  • Amoebic dysentery
  • Bacterial agitation
  • Schistosomiasis
  • Cholera – but there is only a risk of infection for travelers who come into contact with polluted water or contaminated food.
  • Dengue fever disease
  • Intestinal infections from contaminated food or water, including amoeba, lamblia, salmonella, shigella, worm infestation and all kinds of viruses and bacteria
  • Typhus – especially in the northeast of the country
  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Polio, polio
  • Plague – occurs particularly in the north of the country
  • tetanus
  • rabies
  • Typhoid – however, there is only a risk of infection for travelers who come into contact with polluted water or contaminated food.

Vaccination recommendations

  • Cholera – but only among travelers who can come into contact with polluted water or contaminated food.
  • Diphtheria – a vaccination against diphtheria should always exist, also in the home country.
  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Polio, polio – vaccination against polio should always exist, also in the home country.
  • Tetanus – a vaccination against tetanus should always exist, also in the home country.
  • Rabies – but only for high-risk travelers who can come into contact with the vector animals.
  • Typhoid – but only for travelers who can come into contact with polluted water or contaminated food.

Compulsory vaccination

For all persons older than one year and arriving from a yellow fever infection area designated by the WHO, there is a compulsory vaccination against a yellow fever disease.

Yellow fever vaccination of children

In most countries where a yellow fever vaccination is required, this also applies to children over one year of age, and in some countries even from six months. It should be noted that vaccination against yellow fever had a number of side effects, such as encephalitis. Around two-thirds of those affected were children under six months. Therefore, under no circumstances should children under this age be vaccinated. But children under one year of age should also not be vaccinated if possible. If in doubt, yellow fever infection areas must then be avoided. Any vaccination against yellow fever may only be carried out in specially authorized yellow fever vaccination centers!

Malaria prophylaxis

When traveling to the country, especially when traveling to the areas mentioned above, it is strongly advised to undergo malaria prophylaxis. If the side effects seem too worrying, you should at least have a “stand-by preparation” with you.

Representations of South Africa in Germany

The embassy building of the Republic of South Africa was designed by mma architects – based in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Berlin. The embassy was officially opened in November 2003. The building has four floors and is the first new embassy building to be built after the end of apartheid in 1994. It was important to use numerous materials from South Africa, for example the stone for the facade comes from a quarry near Johannesburg.

The building is located in the old and new embassy district on Tiergartenstrasse in Berlin’s Mitte district.
