Summary

In every part of the globe, there is an exceptional vibe and feeling like no other. It’s not all about the place itself but more so of who you are when you get there. Should you prefer to travel solo and reach the most remote areas of the world, then South Africa should be on your bucket list. You’ll meet friendly locals that have a genuine interest in Africa. If culture and history are what you are here for, you will have your much-needed information because residents are forthcoming on their historical background. It makes the country the world’s adventure capital. So what are the awesome things you can do in this country?

Rent a bicycle or motorcycle from the West Coast. Go and see the jaw-dropping Royal Natal National Park. Cycling aside, you can hike to the park’s soaring mountain peaks and striated cliff. Spot any game in the Kruger and pedal to its so-called Panorama Route. You may also climb the Hlumu Mountains if you’re still thirsty for adventure.

Wines produced in the valleys and mountains of Cape Town are notable for their distinct character. With over 150 wine estates just in Stelelnbosch, the choice is really staggering. The variety of restaurants and tasting rooms here include the glass boxes cantilevered over the vineyards, barns converted to fire-lit dens and the 17th century Cape Dutch estates.

Be as close as you can be with nature while riding on a horse. Experience the unmatched feeling of freedom as you amble past the rhinos and canter along with gazelles. This is the best riding safari when compared with other similar experiences.

If your adrenaline rush urges you to visit the dunes, falls and delta, you must be in South Africa. The ideal trip for you should start under the majestic waterfall. You can also transport yourself to the Okavango Delta by a houseboat, then cross through the surreal beauty of Namibia after which you can end up in cosmopolitan Cape Town. Has your adrenaline rush been satisfied yet?

Step off the catwalk, then into the void and fall 288 feet from the tallest rope swing at Durban’s soccer stadium. A definite big rush, isn’t it?
Try to leap from Bloukrans Bridge (709 foot high) along the Garden Route. You can then bounce around while dangling from your own ankles. This is absolutely the best place to cure your fear of heights through extreme measures. Are you brave enough?

Have an up-close and personal swimming session with the sharks in a water cage off Cape Town’s coast. Diving without the cage? Why not? It is possible to dive with bull and tiger sharks and still being safe under water. Pretty cool, isn’t it?

Experience the diversity of the South African people in Johannesburg. Meet people from different walks of life live in this massive city. Learn about the significant and lively history of Soweto. Admire its unique art as well as culture and gather your friends for its traditional Brai dinner in the town of St. Lucia.


Rafting down the winding river of the Northern Cape outright the middle of a desert is really awesome. End with a treat at Brai BBQ, which could be considered as one of the main highlights of your African tour. Pack your things now and be ready for a splendid trip to South Africa for your next holiday. Visit extraordinary South Africa and be amazed at its natural diversity.
