South Africa is home to cosmopolitan cities, mountains, deserts and safari plains filled with wildlife, so whatever type of South African trip you want, you can have it. Stand on the tip of Africa at Cape Point. It’s a World Heritage Site and a nature lover’s paradise as there are various types of colorful vegetation and animals, like baboons and zebras. Climb to the flat top of Table Mountain in Cape Town. The view is breathtaking, but the hike isn’t the easiest, so if hiking isn’t your thing opt for riding the cable car. Game drives with local rangers are very popular in South Africa. Some of the wildlife you can expect to spot are buffalos, elephants, leopards, lions and rhinos.
Learn the story of the racially segregated South Africa at the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg. You are given a white or non-white entrance ticket, which determines the entrance you can use, and then are told about this history through photos, artifacts and short films.
