The best way to think about the necessities to pack for Johannesburg is to think of the trip as a buffet in your suitcase — a little bit of everything. While it all depends on your itinerary, the atmosphere is more New York than San Diego. To avoid any embarrassment at some of the nicer restaurants, clubs and hotels, men should bring a collared shirt and a pair of slacks, while women will feel comfortable with a nice dress and a pair of heels. During the day, comfortable shoes are a must for everyone, as is sunscreen and a wide-brimmed hat, especially in the summer when temperatures are in the 90s. Leave the expensive jewelry and excess electronics at home; the trip will be less stressful without worrying about your belongings.
