5 Reasons South Africa should be on your Life Itinerary

South Africa is Africa's 9th largest country according to its landmass.

The reasons to visit this vast and culturally diverse nation are seemingly endless, and that's why it makes it on so many people's bucket lists.

To encourage you a little more and to further enhance your excitement, here are five reasons you should make it to South Africa at least once in your life…


1. Cape Town. As one of South Africa's three capitals, the Mother City is one that you must explore. Not only is it one of the top holiday destinations in the entire world, but it's full of natural, exotic beauty that you can't find anywhere else. There's excellent food, plenty of beaches, and, last but not least, Table Mountain.


2. The Garden Route. For some of the most breathtaking coastline views, take the Garden Route from Mossel Bay to Storms River. Visit and view small towns, rugged shores, sandy beaches, and thick forests.

3. Go on a safari at Kruger National Park. It may not be the only place to go for a safari adventure in South Africa, but it is undoubtedly one of the greatest. On the safari, you'll get to witness and interact with the ‘Big Five’ of Africa’s most significant wild animals: lions, rhinos, elephants, buffalos, and leopards.


4. Family Safaris. If you have decided to bring the children along on your once-in-a-lifetime, memorable South Africa vacation, make sure to go on several family-friendly safaris. Many of the safari tours will offer youth programs, age-appropriate, hands-on activities, and playgrounds.


5. It’s easy to navigate and explore nearby destinations. South Africa makes it easy to get around with its well-established and maintained road network and infrastructure. You are also allowed to drive there with a foreign license as long as it includes your photograph. There are also several main international airports so that you can fly into any of the nation's major cities.

Of course, the list of reasons to visit South Africa doesn't end here. It would be too hard to name them all. Nonetheless, there are endless reasons one should make it a point to visit the country.



So, if you just added or have had South Africa on your life itinerary, let's get started planning your vacation!

I absolutely love to travel.  My husband always says I'm in planning mode, so even when I'm on a trip, I'm planning for the next one. 

 

This has led to some amazing destinations for our gastro experiences.  Some of our favorites have been Melbourne Australia, Auckland New Zealand, Milan Italy, Columbo Sri Lanka, and Lisbon Portugal.  And of course, I'm already planning for the next one.
