Located at the southern tip of fascinating Africa, the spectacularly diverse country of South Africa is defined by more than 1,500 miles of coastline. The reasons to visit are simple: beautiful scenery, remarkable wildlife, and lots and lots of sunshine. But there’s nothing simple about this place: stretches of sandy beaches, scenic coastal towns, desert, safari destinations, mountain vineyards, lush forests, and modern cities. But the terrain isn’t all that’s varied. South Africa is multi-ethnic with distinct cultures, diverse architecture, and 11 official languages. Absorb panoramic views from iconic, flat-topped Table Mountain; take in the beauty and charm of the famous Garden Route; or seek out The Big Five—buffalo, elephant, lion, leopard and rhino—at game reserves. Active travelers will find opportunities for activities just as diverse and unusual as the legendary landscapes they’re found in—diving, behind-the-scenes tour of a working ostrich farm, riding on a “Little Karoo”, a traditional donkey cart, hiking among the soaring cliffs and sandy beaches in the rugged Robberg Peninsula, cycling the Franschhoek Wine Route and sip acclaimed wines during a vineyard visit and sharing in a home-cooked dinner with a Cape town family in their home. Be sure to sample Asian- and Madagascan-influenced Cape Cuisine, and the fine award-winning wines produced in The Winelands.
