From its towns, cities, coastlines and cultures, South Africa is definitely a very diverse place to visit. But what makes it such a tourist hot-spot? For one, it has a range of unique and exciting activities that will make you want to book a flight as soon as possible. One of the main attractions is Table Mountain, a beautiful natural phenomenon that you definitely want to see at least once in your lifetime. Luckily you don’t just have to admire its beauty from afar, you can book a spot on a cable car up to the mountain and admire its diverse flora up close, or you could hike up with a guide. Either option is just as amazing. There’s also the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, a beautiful nature reserve with rare plant species, walking trails and mountain views. There’s Robben Island, also known as Seal Island, which you can enjoy as a day outing. There’s Augrabies Falls, a national park with a beautiful and absolutely massive waterfall, then there’s St. Lucia, a small town where you can enjoy game drives and Hippo boat cruises, it’s well known for the hippos that roam the street.
And then, of course, there’s the famous Kruger National Park, South Africa’s first national park which contains significant numbers of all the big five wildlife. There are so many more national parks and beautiful natural places to visit in South Africa.
South Africa isn’t only known for its natural monuments, it also has a very interesting and extensive history, with many places to visit that showcase that.

To commemorate that South Africa has the Apartheid Museum, which tells the story of 20th Century South Africa and the now-defunct apartheid system. There’s the District Six Museum, another place that tells a story of the apartheid (definition), there’s also The Mandela House, a restored dwelling of the South African leader.Share this tour
