My 20 days trip to South Africa.

This trip to South Africa in 20 days will finally allow us to visit one of the countries that we most wanted to know, in addition to putting a perfect final icing on the cake, which will go on a free safari, for several days, in the incredible Park Kruger national.

Taking into account the extension of the country and being impossible to visit it in its entirety, after much appreciation, in the end, we have decided to make a route that will take us through most of the essential places to see in South Africa, which we will travel in two stages, both with a car of rental.

Also known as the Republic of South Africa or the rainbow nation, due to the incredible diversity of cultures it houses, this southern African country borders Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe, as well as Mozambique and Swaziland and is bathed by the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

If your interest in traveling to South Africa is unique or especially for fauna, there are other factors that you must take into account so that your trip is as complete an experience as possible.

If you want to enjoy a safari, although the animals are present throughout the year, the best time to do it in winter, when there is less vegetation, so it is much easier to see them.


If what you want is to see the incredible southern whales, typical of the South African coast, you should travel to South Africa between the months of June to December, when it is not strange to see them from the coast itself.


Although many people make the trip to South Africa in an organized way, it is perfectly feasible to do this trip by yourself, including safaris through the natural parks, which you can do with your own car.


If you opt for this option, for us the most recommended, the most ideal is to rent a car in South Africa, since this will allow you to have total freedom of movement and schedules, making your trip much more pleasant and above all, the great experience of making the free safaris.

Taking all these factors into account, for the first trip to South Africa, which includes the most touristic places in the country, we would recommend traveling a minimum of 3 weeks, time that will allow you, in addition to making a wide route through the country, to spend several days in the Kruger, as the final icing on the cake.

In case you do not have this time, in two weeks it is also feasible to make a complete route through the country, dedicating fewer days to the Kruger, 3 or 4 days, and focusing on the most tourist areas.
