When we think of South Africa, one word immediately comes to mind: diversity. The country is home to jaw-dropping landscapes, thrill-seeking adventure and over 300 days of sunshine a year. South Africa has a lot to offer the budding traveller, whether you want to go out on safari to spot the Big 5 or you simply want to relax on a sandy beach. From the sheer brilliance of Table Mountain’s views to the world-famous wines of South African vineyards, you’ll be in awe every day you spend in this beautiful country.
The melting pot of cultures, languages and accents makes South Africa particularly unique on the continent. Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Pretoria – there are so many fantastic cities for you to explore and each one is different in its own way. And of course, you can’t make a journey to South Africa without an important history lesson or two. With the apartheid period and Nelon Mandela’s revolution so close to the present day, it’s crucial that you take some time to appreciate the incredible timeline of this country.
