Trek up Table mountain
Why you should visit: One of, if not the most iconic landmarks in South Africa – Table Mountain – is the statuesque sentinel of Cape Town. Take the cable car ride or get those legs working with a hike up to the top. Either way, the views will leave you breathless.
Galavant on the Garden Route
Why you should visit: The magnificent Garden Route is a 300-kilometer-long coastal route that runs along South Africa’s southern coast from Mossel Bay right up to Storms River in the Eastern Cape. There are stop-overs galore along this route – George, Knysna and Wilderness to name just a few.
The Klein Karoo
Why you should visit: The Klein Karoo or Little Karoo is a 350-kilometre-long valley which starts off in Montagu in the west and ends near De Rust in the east. It’s a great expanse of open land, filled with endless plateaus and skies, enough to make one realise how big the world really is. A very notable landmark in the Klein Karoo are the Cango Caves in Oudtshoorn – a natural wonder, filled with eerie tunnels and awe-inspiring structures.
Wine and dine in the Winelands
Why you should visit: The Cape Winelands is the Western Cape’s premier wine-producing region. Consisting of many towns like Stellenbosch, Paarl, Franschhoek, and Wellington, it not only produces some of the best wine in the country but it’s also soaked in history and is ideal for the culture-buff. Fine dining establishments abound in the Winelands, including South African celebrity chef, Reuben Riffel’s restaurant in Franschhoek.
