Being located in the southern hemisphere, the seasons in South Africa are the opposite of those in Europe. Winter in South Africa, which runs from June to September, is dry and not too cold.

It is also a good season for outdoor activities and sports.

If you can’t wait any longer and want to make this South Africa itinerary a reality, you don’t have to, as travel is possible and easy. The country has been open to tourism for a few months now and restrictions are minimal.

Moreover, as we will tell you throughout this article, the requirements for travel to South Africa now in 2022 are very easy to meet. Both vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers against the coronavirus can enter the African nation.

What will you find if you travel to South Africa now?  A climate of normality. On June 23, all pandemic-related measures were lifted. In fact, it is not even necessary to wear masks indoors.

South Africa promises you a thousand adventures, which is why IATI Backpacker is the best insurance for this trip. Not only does it cover you for a silly accident like a sprained ankle while walking around Cape Town, but you’ll also be protected while doing adventure sports like diving with the great white shark or hiking in search of animals in the Kruger Park.
