Top Places To Visit & Tourist Attractions In South Africa

Cape Town

Cape Town, nicknamed ‘The Mother City’, was the landing place of the first European Colonists in what is today known as South Africa. This beautiful city is set along dramatic sea cliffs and framed by the imposing Table Mountain. At 600 million years old, Table Mountain is one of the oldest in the world; even older than the Andes and the Himalayas. Beyond the city’s breathtaking scenery, Cape Town’s history makes it a must-see when visiting South Africa. On our holidays, we’ll enjoy a tour of Cape Town and its most important highlights.

Robben Island

Located almost 7km off the coast in Table Bay, Robben Island is renowned as the location where Nelson Mandela was kept for 18 years of his 27-year imprisonment. In addition to Nelson Mandela, the island prison also housed two other former South African presidents, Kgalema Motlanthe and Jacob Zuma. Today, the island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a living museum, welcoming thousands of visitors every year. On our holidays to South Africa, we’ll enjoy a guided tour of the island and museum by one of the island’s former political prisoners.

Cape Peninsula

Originally discovered by Portuguese navigator Bartolomeu Dias in 1487 while trying to find the seaway to India, the Cape Peninsula has captivated people for centuries with its dramatic scenery. The Cape Peninsula is the home to the famous ‘Cape of Good Hope’, once thought to be the southernmost point of Africa. The peninsula also features the beautiful Cape Point Nature Reserve and Boulders Beach, home to a colony of rare African Penguins. On our holidays to South Africa, we’ll visit the Cape Peninsula to see this incredible scenery for ourselves.

Wildlife Safari

No trip to South African is complete without a wildlife safari and a game reserve is the perfect place to observe the animals of Africa in their natural habitat. Reserves are home to a variety of animals, including the “Big 5”: Lions, Leopards, Buffalos, Elephants and Rhinoceros. On our holidays to South Africa, we’ll have the opportunity to spot these impressive animals and more as we drive through the award-winning Aquila Private Game Reserve or the Kariega Game Reserve in an open safari vehicle.
