South Africa - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Every country is diverse, but beating South Africa at diversity is something that most cannot do. The country is home to all kinds of sights and attractions, all sorts of natural features and every imaginable experience. It makes the most of its position in the most beautiful continent through a range of iconic landscapes such as the sight of penguins in the Cape, the Table Mountain, hippos of the Limpopo River, the lions and crocodiles of the Kruger National Park, the various ecosystems of iSimangaliso Wetland Park and those exotic wildflowers of Namakwa.

South Africa witnessed a miraculous transformation from being a racial mess to becoming one of the pioneering countries that redefined mankind, brotherhood and democracy. Today, the country proudly welcomes more than 9 million visitors each year and presents a country that is no longer defined by its racial divide. Today, all that matters are those beautiful sights, those remarkable feats of engineering and that rich enviable lifestyle, and their natural fauna and flora.

Travel Highlights

  • Explore the modern city of Cape Town.
  • See the sights in Johannesburg, such as the Cradle of Humankind—an archaeological site that is filled with history and wildlife.
  • Learn of South Africa’s history at the Apartheid museum.
  • Marvel at the Boulder’s Penguin Colony.
  • Experience the gentle giants, elephants, at Addo Elephant National Park.
  • Tour the South African wine country, in the Winelands.
  • Visit Robben Island, and stand in the shoes of Nelson Mandela.

Travel Tips

  • When on a holiday in South Africa, try not to be too flashy in what you wear in order to draw less attention to yourself.
  • While most of South Africa is malaria free, if you go north, come prepared with malaria pills.
  • Bring clothes for warm weather, but also prepare for cooler evenings.
  • If driving in a car, keep the doors locked and windows up at all times. If people try to approach you, ignore them.
  • Mobile coverage is simple to get and available.
  • Be prepared to veer off the beaten path. For example, visit Seal Island, off the coast of Cape Town.
