South Africa offers a slew of lively cities, each one highlighting different aspects of a rich culture, history and landscape. Travellers have the option of selecting an extended South African tour that showcases the best of the country or shorter individual tours that focus on an individual aspect of the nation.
No matter where you decide to spend your time, city tours provide a great introduction. Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban and Pretoria all feature interesting landmarks that deserve exploration. Guided walking tours are a great way to gain local insight. Or, for something a bit different, you may want to consider a helicopter tour.
Choose your own adventure
A variety of tours can be taken that encompass sea, city and everything in between. Tour via coach around the coast and enjoy the array of locally produced wines and fine dining in Stellenbosch region. Alternatively, treat yourself by boarding the Shongololo Express.
It would be remiss to visit South Africa without taking a safari tour. The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is one of the largest reserves remaining in Africa. On the other hand, bring your binoculars to spot the ‘big five’ including the elephant, rhino, leopard, lion and buffalo on a guided safari of the Kruger National Park.
