Things to Do in South Africa

South Africa’s beauty and wealth of activities is due to its immensely varied terrain, from the coastal pathways fringed by white sandy beaches and turquoise blue seas, to its wild inland reserves with unspoiled wilderness and dramatic mountains.

There are countless adventures and activities to try in South Africa, from a Big Five safari and wildlife watching, to fine-dining in some of the most beautiful places in the world. For a South Africa safari vacation, the likes of Kruger and the Sabi Sands are legendary in offering Big Five wildlife paired with luxury accommodation.

To really appreciate this diverse destination, we also recommend adding on a few days, either pre or post safari, to explore South Africa’s more vibrant side of magnificent culture, food and wine.

If you are looking to spend longer than a week on vacation, then taking a coastal drive along the Garden Route with a tour to encounter the marine Big Five and malaria-free reserves will add a serious thrill factor to your adventure.

If you need any help in planning a safari vacation to South Africa, take a look at the areas and experiences that we recommend below, and then contact us to start planning your safari, completely tailored to you.
