Transport in South Africa

The national airline South African Airways (SAA), along with numerous major airlines, offers frequent direct and indirect flights into South Africa from destinations all round Europe and North America. The main airports in South Africa are Cape Town International, Port Elizabeth International, Durban International and Johannesburg (Tambo International). There are frequent domestic flights run by several national airlines and good deals can be found when booking early online. The principal intercity services are run by Shosholoza Meyl with daily trains running between major cities. These trains are cheap, but very slow and most journeys go overnight. The luxury train services include Premier Classe, Blue Train, Rovos Rail Pride of Africa and the Shongololo Express. The road networks are well-maintained and paved in populous regions. Road signs are in English and Afrikaans and national highways are toll roads. Various bus and coach operators run intercity express links across the country with major cities operating a good bus network. Taxis are available throughout the country, all towns, hotels and airports. Car hire is available at most airports and in major city centres and drivers are permitted to use a license from their home country as long as it is in English.
