Home to innumerable game reserves, marine reserves, and National Parks, including Kruger, the wildlife experiences and luxury safari lodge options in South Africa are arguably unparalleled. Impeccable service and cuisine, spas, game drives, and natural wonders abound creating a unique and diverse adventure in the Rainbow Nation.
Located on the southern point of the African continent lie some of the world’s most remarkable vistas and geographical wonders. From the scenery along the Panorama Route to Cape Point’s ocean views and Cape Town’s dramatic backdrop of Table Mountain, and the rolling hills along the winelands to the beaches of Durban, the natural wonders are endless. Add in some wildlife and a drive along Route 62 and your South African journey is hard to match.
One of the world’s most desirable cities for its beauty, weather and bounty of activities from extreme adventures to world class shopping, Cape Town is South Africa’s gem. With easy access to the charming towns of the winelands, whale watching in Hermanus, and the Cape of Good Hope, a stay in Cape Town is deserving of more than a few days. She’s a beautiful and multicultural city, and certainly a co-headliner with the safari drives further afield. Cape Town is a highlight.
From shark-cage diving to bungee jumping, abseiling, hot-air ballooning, and more, South Africa gets your adrenaline pumping well beyond the game drives in search of the Big 5. Try river rafting on choppy rivers, learn to surf, go zip-lining, or paraglide over the Cape Winelands, South Africa is Africa’s adventure capital.
With a rich collection of cultures and a storied history, there are numerous sites to gain further insight and perspective on the country and her past. Take community tours, see heritage sites like the Apartheid Museum and Robben Island, visit art museums, the Cradle of Mankind, and Zulu villages, relaxingly gaze at the Cape Dutch architecture in wine country, and much more.
Yes, it’s not in South Africa, but with easy accessibility, Victoria Falls deservingly made the list being just a quick flight away from Johannesburg. Seen from both Zimbabwe and Zambia, the thundering Victoria Falls, where over 500 million liters of water roar into the towering gorge, create one of the continent’s most spectacular natural wonders.
BEST TIME TO VISIT:
South Africa has a pleasant year round climate, but depending on what you want to do, the seasons may play a part in your planning. Note that the seasons are opposite of those in the Northern Hemisphere. June to September (Winter) is drier and cooler and considered the best time for wildlife viewing. Mid-September to November and April to May are considered the best times to visit considering the country as a whole. In addition to weather, school holidays are a consideration. From mid-December to January and during Easter there are a lot of domestic, European and North American visitors where availability is limited and rates jump.
