South Africa is one of the most popular destinations in the world because it has so much to offer...
At the top of the list is their spectacular scenery, such as Drakensburg Mountains, Cape of Good Hope, and Cape Peninsula--all of which offer a wonderful backdrop for their vast and amazing wildlife. There are many private game reserves, as well as national parks, including the legendary Kruger National Park which is the size of New Jersey. In some places in South Africa you'll find animals that are nowhere else in the world, such as the rare white lion, black rhino, and African penguin.
South Africa is famous for more than safaris. They are one of the world's leading producers of wine and are known for their Cape Winelands. They also offer cultural and other special interest tours.
South Africa includes eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
South Africa is known as the "Adventure Capital of the World," offering incredible activities that can't be achieved elsewhere, such as shark cage diving (Great White Sharks!), sandboarding, whale watching, bakkie skiing, and kloofing.
Cape Town has been consistently voted one of the most popular tourist destinations by both tourists and leading travel publications, including Travel & Leisure, TripAdvisor, and Conde Nast. This book shares some little-known facts, such as an underground tour of Cape Town, the best hiking trails up to Table Mountain, and the best restaurants and nightlife.
South Africa offers some of the best surfing in the world. They also have some of the best beaches in the world on their Eastern and Western Capes (blue flag beaches).
The country has also emerged as a major player in the movie-making business--so much so that Cape Town has been dubbed the "New Tinseltown."
This book includes everything you need to know to go to South Africa, which is one of the safest countries in the world and has never had a case of Ebola or any other deadly disease. In fact, most of the country is malaria free, which is not true for many places around the world. Also in this handy reference are maps, photos, packing list, rail travel options, resources, a sample itinerary, and more!
