South Africa

A place of pristine beaches, world-class cities, majestic mountain ranges and spectacular wilderness.

From the warm Indian Ocean to the chilled Atlantic waters of the Cape; from the stark, arid landscape of the Karoo to the lush bushveld of Mpumalanga Province, South Africa boasts spectacular natural beauty.

Cape Town is undoubtedly a highlight in any visit to South Africa. With her cosmopolitan population, magnificent scenery, adrenalin-pumping activities, colourful history and world-class shopping experiences, Cape Town is an experience not to be missed. Among the list of “must-see” attractions are the V&A Waterfront, a unique and unforgettable shopping and entertainment experience; the Table Mountain Cableway which offers unparalleled vistas of the Cape; the world-famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens; Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in a prison cell; the rugged cliffs of Cape Point and the numerous vineyards which make up the oldest wine making region in the southern hemisphere.

Superb food and wine offerings in Cape Town and the surrounding winelands make South Africa a must-visit for foodies and wine connoisseurs alike. These mouth-watering indulgences in breathtaking surroundings make the perfect ending to an African Safari at one (or two!) of the wonderful Big Five game reserves and national parks. The world-famous Kruger National Park, Madikwe Game Reserve, Nambiti Game Reserve, the game reserves of the Eastern Cape and Garden Route each boast their own wildlife experiences, with lodges to host visitors in absolute luxury.

The dramatic Drakensberg Mountains are the backdrop of the fascinating battlefields of KwaZulu Natal and the home of the proud Zulu people, making this the ultimate culturally rich destination in South Africa. South Africa offers the ultimate family holiday destination, as well as honeymooners, food enthusiasts and thrill-seeking adventure travellers.

Things to know before you arrive?

South Africa is an extremely popular holiday destination in Africa therefore it’s quite easy to travel around. Language shouldn’t be a problem if you can speak English and most larger cities have a likeness to Western countries – soon it will feel like your home away from home.

This country is great for tourists travelling on a budget as all accommodation types are affordable and food is as cheap as it is diverse. Public transport isn’t the most reliable way to get around so we recommend budgeting for a car rental and planning an itinerary based on road trips.

Accomodation in South Africa

The Southern Sun Elangeni & Maharani is a popular beachfront resort in Durban – an Indian inspired harbour city famous for surfers across the globe. The resort sits along Durban’s Golden Mile and overlooks the Indian Ocean. Popular among couples, this 4 star resort should not be overlooked.

If you’re looking for somewhere more budget friendly – check out the Brown Sugar Backpackers – one of the best hostels in Johannesburg – South Africa’s largest city. Johannesburg has a more authentic taste to South Africa over somewhere like Cape Town – it is absolutely bursting with life, history and culture.

Places to visit in South Africa

Share a magical marine moment in Knysna where you can snorkel with an endangered speacies of Seahorses found only in the crisp waters of the South African coastline.  If you’re brave enough to smile at a crocodile then try paddling through waters shared with wild Hippo & Crocs on a kayak safari in St. Lucia. This experience will be sure to get your adrenaline pumping.

For the adventurers we recommend you try ziplining over the Koekedouw River where you can take in panoramic views of the Ceres Valley and unique rock formations. The slides vary in lengths from 100-300 meters making it the perfect experience for both beginners or advanced fliers. Should you desire something more down-to-earth, try delving into the Cango caves – one of the biggest show cave systems in Africa – where you can explore the deep limestone chambers that contain over 20 million years of history.

Staying safe in South Africa

Keeping safe and using common sense to minimise risk will greatly improve the quality of your holiday in South Africa. When driving in city traffic, keep your doors locked and do not drive with your windows down. Don’t engage with strangers that try to confront you at red lights or in stopped traffic – you never know what their intentions may be.

The wildlife is plentiful in South Africa and it is important to be a respectful visitor to their space. Do not approach, provoke or startle these creatures! It is best to stop and admire them from afar and appreciate them just as nature intended. Don’t forget to book any safaris through a reputable source – or better yet, let us at Suncovered do the work for you!
