Places to see in South Africa
- Explore the Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve, located outside Johannesburg. You’ll see herds of zebras and wildebeest journeying across the grasslands, as well as aardvarks, hyenas, and jackals. The overnight hiking trails come highly recommended so bring your backpack!
- Join a safari in Phalaborwa and see the Kruger National Park, one of Africa’s largest game preserves. Prides of lions roam this wilderness area along with giraffes, elephants, and dozens of other species. If you’re lucky, you might even see a rare black rhinoceros or a cheetah.
- Discover Port Elizabeth’s Addo Elephant National Park, visit Bird Island and see the African penguins and gannets. If you crave something more dangerous, climb in a shark cage and join the great white sharks in their natural habitat. Need more adventure? Walk along one of the world’s largest active dune fields, or watch elephants cooling themselves at Hapoor Dam.
South Africa tourism
If you’re traveling to Cape Town, avoid the winter rains and visit from October through November. Otherwise, South Africa experiences the best range of temperatures from March through May. South Africa is best seen by hired car or taxi. Although most cities offer regular bus service, ask the locals about the bus company before you board, since some are more reliable than others.
