Reasons to Visit South Africa

South Africa might not be the most obvious choice for a family holiday, but there are plenty of factors that make it a great choice for the family.


It is widely known that the best urban beaches that the world has to offer can be found in Cape Town. Try Camps Bay which is within easy reach of the city center or head to Boulders Beach where you can see African penguins. The Indian Ocean coastline has so much to offer if you want golden sands and warm clear waters.


If you want to go on safari, you should be aware that the Kruger National Park is one of the big five destinations. There are plenty of other national parks and reserves in South Africa that you can visit too. Try Sabi Sands for a more exclusive approach to the traditional safari holiday.

Food and wine

The Cape Winelands is now one of the most famous parts of South Africa. There are plenty of great vineyards in this area. As visitors, you can tour the wineries and try one or two of the local wines. The restaurants in the area offer a variety of different cuisines, from the local traditional dishes to more international fare.

The great outdoors

The great weather and wonderful scenery in South Africa bring in those who love being outdoors. You can spend time hiking up to the top of Table Mountain, spend some time in the Drakensberg on horseback, watch for whales in Hermanus or even try your hand at paragliding over the beaches at Cape Town. Other options include walking safaris or cycling in wine country or just enjoy the scenery in the Garden Route. With plenty of countrysides just waiting to be explored, there is no reason to spend your holiday just soaking up the sun by the pool.
