South Africa is a gem yet to be fully explored and understood. Want to discover this beautiful country? Then take these useful apps with you on your next trip.
Any travel enthusiast eager to enjoy life should definitely include South Africa on their list. Scenic views, a thriving culture, and opportunities to have fun round the clock are what attracts tourists from across the globe. Don't miss your chance to explore this part of the world. Of course, the first thing you should work on organizing is transportation. Buses are the most common way of going from one end of the country to the other but, when it comes to bigger cities, taxis or even rent-a-bikes are a good option.
While a good chunk of the population will speak some English, if you truly want to experience South Africa, you are best advised to make an effort and learn the language the locals speak on a daily basis. Afrikaans, a derivative of Dutch, is the most widely used, followed by Zulu. Obviously, you don't have to become fully fluent (although, for some, this will become a life goal), but taking a short online course could give you deeper insight into the culture. Any serious globetrotter will confirm this.
However, there is one minor downside to South Africa you may want to consider. Despite having plenty to offer in the way of food and entertainment, the country is currently affected by periodic power outages. These are not random but instead serve as a rolling blackout - a way to save energy in times of scarcity. Locally, they are referred to as rotational load shedding. Want to know when the next one is supposed to occur? An app like EskomSePush will allow you to keep an eye on the situation and plan your moves accordingly. That way, you will be able to make the most of your adventure - regardless of whether you're in Cape Town or a remote bit of the country.
