The N1 highway connects the airport with Pretoria, to the north, and the M1, to the south, which leads to Johannesburg. Journeys to both cities are made easily by car. Both Johannesburg and Pretoria have much to offer, but it is perhaps their surrounding attractions that are of the biggest appeal to visitors. Local draws include the Rietvlei Nature Reserve, the Hartebeespoort Dam and the World Heritage site of the Cradle of Humankind.
Both Pretoria and Johannesburg have similar climates, although Pretoria's summers tend to be hotter and wetter, with temperatures sometimes soaring to 39°C (Johannesburg reaches a maximum temperature of 35°C). November, December and January are the wettest months, making the dry months of April, May, August, September and October the best months in which to visit.
