1: Cape Town is South Africa’s oldest city…

Hemmed In between the sea and the scenic Table Mountain , Cape Town is best known for it’s sandy beaches, historic architecture, breathtaking view points and charming vineyards.

Cape Town is one of the planet’s most breathtaking cities. Nature surrounds this multi cultural city which nuzzles between a rugged range of mountains and seas.

One of the top things to do is visit the Table Mountain, the flat topped peak presiding over the city!

3: Sabi Sands Game Reserve

One of South Africa’s most luxurious safari experience. It is just adjacent to Kruger National Park.

One of the perks of taking a tour here Will be the ability for game drives to get really closer to the animals because they do not have to stick to a particular route.

The animals themselves can roam freely between Kruger and Sabi Sands!

6: Robben Island

Also a world UNESCO site. Robben Island is a haunting reminder of the horrors of apartheid.

Nelson Mandela spent 18 years imprisoned in a tiny cell here along with other political dissidents and misfits.

A complete history of South Africa can not be told without mentioning apartheid.

So Robben Island gives a remarkable insight!

7: Apartheid Museum

A harrowing place to visit, the Apartheid Museum covers a hugely important but yet horrific part of South Africa’s past.

This museum will evoke a wide range of emotions, leaving you exhausted but upbeat at the end. As apartheid’s impact is still sadly seen ( and felt) wherever you go in South Africa.

You really have to spend at least half a day here. This will help you understand all the places and people you visit!

8: Drakensberg Mountain

Reaching between 2,000 and 3,482 meters in height are the massive and majestic Drakensberg Mountains.

One of the most rugged and wild parts of South Africa, it is known for its breathtaking and jaw dropping peaks, buttes and death defying drops.

Drankensberg translated “ Dragon Mountain “ in Afrikaans as an amazing scenery especially for those who like adventures like me.

It forms a border with land locked Lesotho!

Last on my list of tourist destinations in South Africa for enthusiasts is this wonderful park.

The Addo Elephant Park is a diverse wildlife conservation park situated close to Gqeberha in South Africa and is currently ranked third in size after Kruger and Kgalagadi Transfrontier Parks!
