South Africa Travel Guide

South Africa the rainbow nation is a treasure chest of unforgettable memories, from lofty mountains to sun-baked deserts and dramatic coastlines washed by the Atlantic and Indian oceans. Its game viewing equals the best in Africa.

Overshadowed by dramatic Table Mountains and surrounded by the Atlantic, Cape Town is one of the world's most picturesque cities. You can sample fine wine under the grapes in the wine lands and traditional rural villages, and the resorts along the Kwazulu Natal. The rise of the Drakensburg Mountains where vultures ride on the thermals over deeply green valleys and jagged peaks. To the east is the Kruger National Park where the thorny bush harbours the Big Five animals to see (the lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino) as well as many other fascinating animals and birds.

South Africa also has a vivid history of apartheid with the jailing of Nelson Mandela who was released after 27 years of imprisonment. It is a fitting name for a country with 11 official languages and people of all colors, races and creeds, living in a vividly colored and sculpted landscape. It is no wonder then that its cities are so cosmopolitan.

Accommodation in South Africa's national parks is in rest camps that usually have a restaurant and shop, and sometimes a swimming pool. Rooms are in thatched huts South Africa offers a wide range of hotels from luxury 5-star establishments with extras such as gym, beauty spa and swimming pool, to simple small-town hotels that double up as the local bar. There are several standard hotel chains, as well as individual boutique hotels with stylish interiors. Almost every town in the country has a municipal caravan and camping site. Accommodation is available in both private rooms with en suite bathrooms or dorms with a shared shower. Self-catering facilities are provided. Some rent out mountain bikes or surfboards.

There is a high level of crime, but most occurs in townships and isolated areas away from tourist destinations.
