South Africa is a place where everyone should go at least once in their lives. From
gorgeous weather, affordability, amazing beaches, vast wildlife, delicious wine and food, and
breathtaking scenery everywhere you go!
Whether you’re looking to meet interesting people, go hiking, horseback riding, on safari, lazily lying at the beach, or indulging your “foodie” side, this country has it all. South Africa provides great opportunities for those who prefer an outdoor lifestyle and opens your eyes up to diverse culture everywhere you go.
Cape Town is the most popular destination in South Africa and for good reason. It’s a vibrant, multicultural city with lively bars, delicious food, great weather, lots of nature and hiking nearby. In addition to the city’s amazing beaches, the waterfront is bursting with things to do as well.
Both the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian Ocean coasts of South Africa offer world-class surfing. Jeffrey’s Bay on the south coast near Port Elizabeth is the most famous surfing destination in South Africa and offers big waves and multiple breaks. There are also a number of good surfing locations near Cape Town, including Dungeons in Hout Bay and a number of others further south on the Western Cape, such as Long Beach.
You can’t visit South Africa without learning about the horror of apartheid (a system of institutionalized racial segregation), which cast its shadow over the country from the 1940s all the way into the 1990s. Opened in 2001, the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg does an excellent job of highlighting apartheid’s history and legacy. While in Johannesburg, visit the Constitutional Court. It stands on the site of a former political prison and you can tour some of the prison ruins and learn more about the many political prisoners who were unjustly detained here.
When it comes to learning about apartheid, you’ll want to also plan a trip to Robben Island. Located just four miles off the coast of Cape Town, Robben Island was a maximum-security prison until 1996. During the apartheid era, many political prisoners were sent to Robben Island. This includes Nelson Mandela, who spent 18 years behind bars on Robben Island. The prison is now a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the most important cultural sites in the country.

We had a wonderful honeymoon in South Africa. It was a perfect combination of sightseeing in Cape Town, wine drinking in Franschhoek, relaxing in Plettenberg Bay and game viewing at Kwandwe. It was a great experience of a beautiful country and we hope to go back sometime.
Our trip was mostly booked by Arpit at Fly bagna, who was really helpful in organising with us a truly once in a lifetime holiday. He listened to what we wanted, advised and recommended, but would listen to us and accepted what we wanted. As it was our 30th anniversary, not sure how but we ended with private safari vehicles, private dinners, cakes, and room upgrades. So many thanks. Many thanks to everyone and all who were involved in making our trip so special.
