Sky-high mountains, lavish virgin forests, fine sand beaches and lions lounging in the afternoon sun; South Africa is sure to be the hottest holiday destination for 2019. Below are some tips and inspiration to truly make your holiday to South America an unforgettable one.
South Africa – The Hottest Travel Destination for 2019
Go on a Golfing Holiday to South Africa
South Africa is an oasis to a number of world-class golf courses. Whilst most of the tourists come for a superb safari experience, some also incorporate the excitement of seeing wild animals with golfing beneath the African skies. Whether you’re on safari at Kruger National Park, on a road trip along the Garden Route or wandering around the diverse city of Cape Town, there’s probably a nearby golf course oozing with South African atmosphere.
Visit Table Mountain National Park
The Table Mountain National Park is Cape Town’s most notable attraction. It’s an enormous flat chunk of sandstone that elevates 3,500 feet and has 350 trails to the summit, thus drawing many hikers to the nation. If you’re not into hiking, cable cars are available also. As the weather changes year-round, you could get lucky with clear skies and breathtaking views, or perhaps you may experience the blanket of clouds called “table cloth” that often mantles the mountain.
Go on a Safari in South Africa
A safari is to South Africa what the Taj Mahal is to India; it’s tantamount, emblematic and something that you must experience when holidaying in the country. South Africa is the greatest place around the world to see the Big Five; the lion, rhinoceros, leopard Cape buffalo and African elephant, therefore making it the perfect safari holiday destination. Safari adventures in South Africa can be as stress-free or rip-roaring as you like, but you’ll not control the feeling of astonishment upon encountering some of the most amazing animals in the wild.
Swimming with Great White Sharks
Get a closer look at this fascinating species as South Africa is home to several shark diving spots.
Just south of Cape Town, Gansbaai is considered as the great white shark capital of the world. Mossel Bay is also a great spot which is a bit further east. Both offer tours to tourists where you head out to the sea, become educated on some shark behavior and go on a cage in the sea whilst sharks swim around you.
Wine Tasting Escapade
After all of the excitement, you may want to enjoy a more soothing activity such as wine tasting. This country also produces some of the finest wines in the world, with a few of these prestigious wineries being found in Cape Winelands, a 45-minute drive from Cape Town. The blend of comforting sceneries and the taste of wines will complete your South African trip. You will never be bored in South Africa, as there are endless amounts to see and do.
