South Africa is located at the very bottom of the African continent and is a unique tourist destination. It offers visitors diverse landscapes including a beautiful coastline that hugs both the western and eastern perimeters of the country. The cities easily compare to other favorite cities around the world — but the routine sunshine makes South African cities standout. Among these cities you will find English speaking South Africans to Afrikaans, Tswana, Zulu and Xhosa — the people areas diverse as the languages, and yet they all live in the same country. The wildlife you see is some thing you only dream of seeing, but here it is real and amazing!

I could go on and on about why I would travel to South Africa, but until you know what you can expect to see and do there, you may not see the value in my “whys.” So don’t just take my word for it; instead, check out these top five reasons other travelers visit South Africa and decide for yourself — I am sure after you read their reasons you will be ready to pack your bags!

Much of the wild life in South Africa are animals you typically only see in zoos. However, here these animals are everywhere. Go on a safari or visit a wildlife refuge and see over 300 different mammals, including lions, elephants, giraffes, hippopotamus, and more. And that doesn’t even account for all the birds you will see.
Cape Town is one of the most visited cities in Africa, and it is also one of the most culturally diverse. This cosmopolitan city is a melting pot of people, culture, and food. Visit the raved about Table Mountain that offers visitors panoramic views of the city as well as the Atlantic Ocean. If you love history, check out the offshore Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned.
