A multi-cultural mix of cuisines and landscapes, there is nowhere quite like the beautiful mother city of Cape Town, crowned by the magnificent Table Mountain National Park. The flat-topped Table Mountain may be the initial headline act, but it is surrounded by other breath-taking landscapes such as the iconic Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden and Green Point Urban Park, making exploring the city a pleasure. Add activities such as learning to surf; go hiking or mountain biking. Throw in a mix of adrenaline by tandem-paragliding off Lion’s Head and abseiling off the top of Table Mountain – these are just a few of the many activities on offer. From striking street art to the brightly painted facades of the Bo-Kaap and the bathing chalets of Muizenberg, adding Afro-chic decor of restaurants and bars, this is an exciting metropolis. Within an hour’s drive you can exchange urban landscapes for the charming towns, villages and the Winelands, such as Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. The infamous location of Hermanus best known for whale-watching as well as a base from which to organise shark-cave diving. Further afield, the delights of the Garden Route unfold, promising more inspiring scenery to be viewed while driving down the coast and over mountain passes.
The highlight on the list for most visitors to South Africa is the Garden Route, and with good reason. The glorious natural beauty is seductive. Just 200km spanning from Mossel Bay in the west to Storms River in the east, it offers a range of topography, vegetation, wildlife and outdoor activities is remarkable. Excellent beaches dotted along the coastline, while inland you will find picturesque lagoons and lakes, rolling hills and eventually the mountains of the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma ranges forming the divide between the Garden Route and the arid Little Karoo.
THE KRUGER NATIONAL PARK
Situated at the North-Eastern tip of South Africa, it boasts the biggest National Parks in Africa which spans over the Mpumalanga and Limpopo province. As a result of surrounding private reserves dropping their fences, the surface area now spans 19 633 km² allowing wildlife to roam freely between reserves. This has created a wildlife area which is truly unforgettable, showcasing multiple species. Established in 1898 by the President of the Transvaal, Paul Kruger, after realising that the Lowveld animals needed to be protected, therefore the area between the Sabie and Crocodile Rivers was set aside for restricted hunting in 1884. Kruger’s revolutionary plan only fully came to fruition in 1898 when the Sabie Game Reserve was established (later to be renamed the Kruger National Park).
