PCR testing is widely available across South Africa. Private laboratories, such as Ampath, Lancet, Lab24, PathCare, Epicentre and Testaro offer PCR testing with or without appointment. There is also rapid antigen tests and PCR testing at OR Tambo, Cape Town International and King Shaka International. For travellers wanting concierge PCR testing, there are several private medical providers who provide concierge testing facilities at hotels, or any accommodation, even lodges in the Kruger. The cost of PCR tests is around R850 and these take between 24 and 48 hours for results.
