Africa

Thinking of going to South Africa to spend your vacation? Be warned, as once you have experienced the wonders of South Africa, you would always want to return!

South Africa is a country of high mountains, open plains and rugged coastlines. If you are still confused, here are some great reasons why you should visit South Africa for some “Off-Beat Experiences”:

Abundant wildlife

If you are fond of discovering new wild animals that you have never seen before, then South Africa is the place. It has a huge array of wildlife and it is one of the main things that people come here to see. Kruger National Park, in the north of the country, is surely the most famous, where you can spot the Big Five (lion, buffalo, leopard, rhino and elephant). If you have grown up watching The Lion King, going on a Safari in Africa would definitely be on your bucket list.

For the love of Adventure

South Africa is a great destination for any adrenaline junkie. From bungee jumping, to paragliding, abseiling, kite surfing, rafting, mountain biking, hiking, skydiving, deep sea fishing, surfing, scuba diving, even shark cage diving…and so much more. With the great outdoors scenery and the beautiful climate, there is never a dull moment in South Africa.

Sample the wines

One of the places to see in South Africa are the Winelands in the Western Cape. The Pinotage is South Africa’s signature grape and makes an excellent blend of wine. A visit to Cape Winelands, with its sunlit vineyards and dramatic mountain ranges is a must if you love wine, with tastings and walks through the vineyards to see how the process of making wine happens.

Photographer’s paradise

With some of the most spectacular landscapes, famous South African landmarks, amazing wildlife, beautiful people and famous landmarks, South Africa is a haven for any photographer, professional and amateur. And the country boosts a lot of very Instagrammable places. Cape Town is such a city with a lot of very Instagram-worthy places to get the best shot for any Instagram account or personal photo book.

Family friendly

South Africa has plenty of child-friendly accommodation and loads of great options for a family holiday: Cape Town is popular for a beach break or go for family safari or more. The options are endless and your kids will surely fall in love with it.
