Hitching in South Africa is possible.
Hitchiking in South Africa is possible, but not as easy as in Europe due to the fact that there hijackings people tend to be a more scared of picking up strangers, but the truth is every hitchiking case is unique..
Along main Roads its not as easy, as in smaller roads. What I would suggest is waiting at shopping malls/centres and gas stations. I normally get rides from people at gas stations... Its so much easier try it
In 2010, South Africa will be the hosting country of the FIFA World Cup.
