I am originally from Bloemfontein, South Africa, where it is quite hot and dry. Bloemfontein is approximately five hours away from Johannesburg, or "Joburg," as we like to call it. When considering all of the underlying circumstances in South Africa, I would recommend visiting the southern part of the country not only because of its beauty, but because of the safety that is in place (at least, more so than in other places). In George, specifically, the weather is amazing and the general landscape changes from quite flat to very rugged and mountainous. There are not as many tourists in this area, so it is quiet, for the most part. A great vacation outing besides Sun City in the Noord Transvaal area, I must note, is Glentana.
