As in most of Africa, transportation options dwindle as you move away from the population centers and larger cities. In South Africa, this distinction is somewhat less pronounced, with shared taxi service and bus service connecting most of the smaller towns to the larger urban areas, as well as a good train system connecting the big cities to each other. One of the world’s great rail vacations, the Blue Train, actually ends up in Johannesburg. There is also the Rovos Rail in South Africa, a vintage train that makes for a lovely vacation inclusion. Many people who vacation in South Africa come for a safari, and the most common form of transport for these trips is by bush plane, which cuts down the potential for long drive times by road, and provides an added bonus, where you get to see Africa from a bird’s eye view. TravelStore can arrange travel by bush plane during your stay, as well as private car and driver where required.
