Top Tips

  • While driving in South Africa is relatively safe, always ensure that you keep your windows up and doors locked when stopping at traffic lights — particularly in towns and cities.
  • Unlike many countries, South Africans drive on the left-hand side of the road.
  • Many of the highways linking large towns and cities are toll roads, where you will need either a credit card or the right amount of cash to pay.
