South Africa Map

Recommended places to visit in South Africa

The Rainbow Nation is home to some of the greatest diversity on the planet whether it's landscapes, animals or people with mountains, winelands and coast competing with world-class national parks and cosmopolitan cities. Here's just a handful of some of the country's top spots.

Cape Town - The Mother City

View on map
Green Point | Cape Town | South Africa

With gorgeous golden beaches, a thriving arts scene, attractive architecture and bountiful natural beauty, it's little wonder that Cape Town is southern Africa's most visited city. Fronting the Atlantic Ocean and backed by the dramatic flat-topped massif of Table Mountain, Cape Town has more than enough to entertain with easy access to the charming villages of the neighbouring wine regions.

Kruger National Park - The Big 5 and more

View on map
See Zebras at Kruger National Park on our Africa safari tours

Located in the northeastern corner of South Africa across almost 20,000 sq km of sub-tropical woodland, the world-famous Kruger National Park is one of Africa's largest game reserves, home to a staggering diversity of wildlife including the Big 5 of lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo. The numbers of these iconic animals are equally as impressive with sightings of leopard, giraffe and cheetah reasonably common.

Addo National Park - Elephant sanctuary

African Elephants | African Safaris | Africa

Located north of Port Elizabeth on the Eastern Cape, Addo National Park is the best place in South Africa to spot elephants. Set up in 1931 to protect the region's dwindling elephant population, Addo National Park is now a sanctuary to some 600 elephants as well as the remaining four animals in the Big 5 consort. It also encompasses a stretch of coast where great white sharks and southern right whales visit in season

Stellenbosch - Winelands and culture

View on map

For wine aficionados, Stellenbosch is a veritable paradise. Rolling hills and vineyards make up the city’s landscape as do historical buildings and the city’s highly-respected university, responsible for the multitude of students on bikes zipping through the streets. Throughout the city are several prominent wine estates offering tasting sessions and tours for those hoping to learn more about the wine-making process. Stellenbosch is also heavily involved with the Arts with a number of excellent museums and galleries.

Port Elizabeth - Coastal charm

View on map

Situated in the Eastern Cape, Port Elizabeth is a large, populous city with great weather and superb scenery. The city is lined with pristine beaches which lead to a number of hidden caves and lagoons. Historically and culturally the city is important and there are a number of museums and memorials showcasing this. With so much to offer, Port Elizabeth should be visited by anyone travelling along the Garden Route which follows the glorious coast.

Sun City - Family fun

View on map

The ultimate getaway for adults and families alike, Sun City is a pleasure resort with golf courses, water parks and a casino just some of what is on offer at this magical kingdom. There are also bumper boats and a kids club for the younger guests as well as several safari options for those seeking a bit of adventure. In the evening performances of all kinds take place including cabaret productions and beauty pageants.
