Travel Tips for Port Elizabeth
he best time to take a trip to South Africa will depend on what you want from your it. Weatherwise, during the months from October to April, are recommended. October, November and April are the ideal months for private tours or sightseeing tours as the weather is cooler, there are fewer crowds and it may also be a slightly cheaper time. January and February are hot, so if it is just a beach holiday you are looking for, it is a perfect time.
Probably the most expensive thing about South Africa is getting there because when you are there, it is relatively inexpensive. The biggest expense is likely to be accommodation, but if you are not too fussy you can get a night in a b&b, with an evening meal, that is basic but clean for $60. Activities are more expensive in peak season, as are private tours, but shop around as prices vary with different tour operators.
Sadly, there is nowhere in the world that is crime free, so when in South Africa be careful of your belongings. Only carry enough money to do you for the day and keep it somewhere safe on your person and be aware of your surroundings at all time. Never walk alone at night in unpopulated dark areas. Tipping in restaurants and bars is between 10-15 percent but never feel obliged to leave a tip if the service was a disaster.
South Africa has a lovely climate that is temperate with plenty of sunny, dry days. Winter is June, July and August when it is generally dry and cool with snow only falling in the mountainous regions. September and October are springtimes. Summer is December to February and it also is the rainfall season with The Cape getting most of the rainfall. It can get extremely hot during January but perfect for getting that golden tan you always wanted!
