Getting Around South Africa
Likewise, getting between South Africa's other major cities/regions (such as Kruger National Park) is typically done by flight. Domestic flights connect most of the major points of interest to travelers, although some routes will require a connection in Johannesburg, the largest airport in the country. Private charter flights also connect to more remote areas.
Self-drive is also an option and is popular for trips such as the Garden Route or Cape Town-Namibia. Most roads are in good condition, although it is important to exercise some caution, especially in major urban areas like Cape Town and Johannesburg, due to aggressive drivers and the risk of carjackings. Note that in South Africa, you'll drive on the left side of the road.
