    You've offered up WAY too open-ended of a query for any useful answers to come out of it.

    What do you want to do while there? How long do you intend to stay? Have you arranged anything for the visit? What is the purpose of the trip? How many people? What ages? Mobility issues, dietary restrictions or other concerns?

    To begin with, since South Africa is in the Southern hemisphere, March in South Africa is the equivalent of September in the U.S., so pack to dress accordingly. I'd also recommend being very careful in Jo'burg, and probably staying in Sandton if you can.

    The US is a pretty big place. I'm quite sure that the weather in September isn't the same across the country, just like in South Africa. ;)

    Jo'burg is at reasonably high elevation (~5000 feet) so the weather is more temperate year round. Here's what March 2014 looked like: http://www.wunderground.com/history/airport/FAOR/2014/3/11/MonthlyHistory.html#calendar.

    This trip is an adventure initiated on a whim by my best friends son who is fascinated by travel. The three of us have not laid out an agenda and are open to food, dramatic landscapes, unusual items that we may discover, local people, fellow travelers and history. This is broad but it is the way we travel.
