South Africa is a developed country with very good national roads and secondary roads. In South Africa and Namibia we travel on the left-hand side of the road, the same as in the United Kingdom after all South Africa is an ex British Colony. When traveling in South Africa there are plenty of petrol stations, restaurants, shops, banks and other necessary services which are all readily available. Credit cards are accepted almost everywhere, which should limit the need to carry large amounts of cash with you. You should, however, always have some cash in the local currency with you, your representative will assist you with where and how to obtain local currency! South African Rands (ZAR) are accepted in Namibia.
No matter where in the world that you might be travelling safety is always a concern, use your common sense, avoid travelling at night, do not pick up hitchhikers, do not leave valuables visible in your vehicle, do not speed, always obey the speed limit, do not drink and drive.
