Johannesburg is situated on an elevated plateau and as such has a subtropical highland climate. This means hot summers and mild winters.

From September to March you can expect day time highs of 26°C (78.8°F). Johannesburg in the summer, bring an umbrella and waterproof shoes, but don't bother with waterproof clothing as you'll find conditions too muggy and warm for that.

The Cooler Months - April through August generally temperatures hover at a comfortable 18°C (64.4°F) during the day and chilly at night. Johannesburg in the winter, you'll need to bring a variety of clothing - something lightweight for the warmer days, but something heavier for the colder nights. Temperatures can dip below freezing overnight, so you should be prepared for this.

Your passport must be valid for at least 30 days beyond the period of intended stay. An onward or return ticket is required, as well as sufficient funds and documents needed for further travel.
