Let’s be honest, the South African passport (or Green Mamba as we affectionately refer to it), can be slightly limiting when it comes to traveling.  We currently hold the spot of the 3rd most powerful passport on the African continent, behind Seychelles and Mauritius, but with Africa in general having the least powerful passports, this is small consolation for avid travelers.  For interest sake, the countries with the most powerful passports are Germany and Sweden who have access to 158 countries visa-free.

Don’t despair!  There are actually an astonishing 90 countries that South Africans can visit without a visa.  You heard right.  No queues, no embassy nightmares, you simply buy a ticket and get on the plane.  Plus, there are a further 31 countries for which you only need a visa upon arrival.
