South Africa - Sightseeing Tours and Activities

South Africa may be known for its great safari experiences but there's more to this beautiful country than you can imagine. Located on the southern end of one of the most diverse continents in the world, South Africa is blessed with various kinds of terrain that will have you clicking that camera throughout your trip. Be it enjoying nature's wonders or going on a gastronomic trip, there's something for everyone in South Africa.

Sightseeing destinations in South Africa

Culture, nature and fun are just a few of the things you can enjoy in South Africa. Apart from the safari experiences, you can also see various flora at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Or, get to know the country's history through a coupe of visits to museums such as the Apartheid Museum and the District Six Museum.

Top tour activities in South Africa

These are some of the best activities to do while in South Africa:

  • Go on a safari – Much of the country has been dedicated to the protection of wildlife, and it would be a shame to not even see the beauty of South Africa's wildlife. You can choose Kruger National Park, one of the most affordable sanctuaries that features the Big Five: buffalos, elephants, leopards, lions and rhinos. The iSimangaliso Wetland Park in KwaZulu-Natal is equally impressive with its five distinct ecosystems.
  • Visit a former prison – Much like Alcatraz, Robben Island used to hold prisoners, particularly political prisoners. This was where Nelson Mandela spent many years incarcerated. Here, you can see the lime quarry where prisoners worked as well as the graveyard dating back to the time when the island was a leper colony. The island offers a spectacular view of Cape Town's Table Mountain.
  • Visit a vineyard – With a mild Mediterranean climate, Cape Town is perfectly suitable for cultivating grapes. Most estates offer tastings for visitors and some even have great restaurants. Not only is there good food and wine, visitors will also be treated to architectural delights as some of the buildings bear the Cape Dutch style. Some of the best vineyards include Olifants River, Paarl, Robertson, Stellenbosch and Worcester.

Top tour attractions in South Africa

There are many interesting places in South Africa, and these are just a few of them:

  • Kruger National Park – The park is almost unrivaled in the number of species that call the land home. There are about 2,000 plant species, more than 500 birds and over 100 mammals, including some of the most iconic safari species.
  • Table Mountain – With a variety of environments that include granite and sandstone mountains, beaches with giant boulders and shady forests, Table Mountain is host to a couple of outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, bird and wildlife watching, snorkeling and diving.
  • iSimangaliso Wetland Park – The park's name means miracle and wonder, and that's a perfect description of this place. Covering 332,000 hectares, this park features a very colorful underwater life, beaches and a variety of wildlife.
