An entrepreneur who earned an MBA at Florida International University in Miami, Antonio Junior enjoys traveling in his leisure time, and visited South Africa during Nelson Mandela’s presidency.

Located at the bottom of the African continent, South Africa attracts many travelers with its culture and urban life as well as its wildlife and safaris. When planning a trip, travelers should be sure to pick the best season for their interests.

Those looking to embark on a safari in Kruger or one of the other parks will want to visit in the drier season, from May to October, when animals gather around water sources. However, this season tends to be muggy so be prepared for high humidity. Travelers looking for a beach holiday will want to book a trip during the hot season from November to March, though be warned that the country experiences an influx of travelers over Christmas and New Year’s. Finally, travelers interested in exploring Cape Town and the Garden Route will want to visit from March to May as the weather is mild and there are fewer tourists.

Antonio Junior is an entrepreneur and the founder of fuel reclamation services firm Florida Conservation, Inc., in Miami Springs, Florida. Outside of his professional life, Antonio Junior likes to spend his free time engaged in his favorite pastimes, one of which is traveling.

As exciting as it is to arrive at a travel destination, the process of getting there can be incredibly stressful, especially for those traveling by air. The following three tips can help travelers avoid unnecessary stress at the airport.

1. Do as many things ahead of time as you can. Does your airline offer the opportunity to check in for your flight online? Take it. Does the airline offer you the option of saving your boarding pass to your smart phone? Take advantage of that, too. The more that you can do before you arrive at the airport, the less time you will spend waiting in lines.

2. Consider signing up for TSA Precheck. Individuals who meet certain qualifications and are determined to be low-risk flyers can pay a fee that allows them to move more quickly through security checkpoints in airports around the world.

3. Evaluate your luggage ahead of time. Make sure that your bags meet your airline’s standards for weight and size, regardless of whether you’re checking your luggage or carrying it on. Additionally, all liquids and gels stored in carry on bags need to meet the 3-1-1 rule, where containers can hold up to three ounces of liquid and must be stored in one quart sized plastic bag to be screened at security.
