Welcome to South Africa:

“We invite you, with open arms, to our wonderful country”Nelson Mandela

South Africa, a beautiful democratically-led country, offers endless views, incredible activities, exciting attractions, thrilling safaris, and more for the astute business traveller. This bountiful republic is also ripe for the picking of worthwhile investment opportunities. South Africans are renowned for their entrepreneurial spirit and there are sure to be plenty of economically-sound projects that you can help to succeed with your investments.

Like their iconic former president Nelson Mandela, South Africans are a welcoming people. Visitors to the sunny country are instantly crushed to the bosom of her friendly residents, so don’t be surprised if you are invited to a “braai” (a barbeque) or a “kuier” (a visit) soon after meeting them.

If you are keen to get some sightseeing in South Africa before or after the Congress, there are plenty of great things to see and do. Simply select what strikes your wanderlust fancy from our partner Giltedge’s pre and post-Congress incredible itineraries.

Best Time to Travel

Winter (May to August)

Across South Africa’s reserves, winter signals the dry season and the best time to go on safari. Days are mild with plenty of sunshine, however, temperatures often drop in the early mornings and late afternoons – so pack a warm jacket. If you’re spending time in Cape Town, you may see some rain in between the crisp, cool winter days

Summer (October to March)

Cape Town is best in the summer months of October to March. Temperatures can get well into the 30° Celsius range (perfect beach weather!). Summer is the dry season in Cape Town, however, it is the wet season in South Africa’s reserves. Summer rains usually come down in short afternoon thunderstorms, and the landscapes turn lush and green.
