South Africa - Travel tips

Arid savannahs, dream beaches, multi-cultural cities: welcome to South Africa! If this is your first time in Africa, it's the perfect place to start. South Africa offers indeed a good picture of what this intriguing continent really is: from safaris and game drives in search of the Big Five, the giant animals of the bush, to spectacular green nature, down to the ocean, where with a bit of luck you can even view a couple of whales. Probably your tailormade tour will start in Cape Town, a magical city where two cultures meet, the European one and that of the natives. You will remain speechless in front of the beaches, you will get lost in the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the V&A Waterfront, while Cape Malay, the multiethnic quarter of the Mother City will surprise you with its colorful houses and its tasty cuisine.

If you love wild nature, reach the top of the Table Mountain, the giant which dominates Cape Town, and enjoy mind-blowing views. The other cities of South Africa are not less interesting: Johannesburg, where the memory of Nelson Mandela and the dramatic legacy of the apartheid is still vivid, Pretoria, the administrative capital of the country, lively Durban with breath-taking beaches, Hermanus, the town for whale watching, Knysna, traversed by the spectacular Garden Route, the panoramic road that no one can miss while on holiday in South Africa. Or else Outdshoorn, the city of ostriches, Stellenbosch, famous for its vineyards, where you can take wine tours in wineries that are just as glamorous as the more popular European ones.

If you are in South Africa, you surely don't want to give up on safaris and game drives, in search of the world-famous Big Five. Visit Kruger National Park, declared International Biosphere Reserve by Unesco. Escorted by experienced rangers, you will meet the giants of the savannah, from the lion to the elephant, and it will be unforgettable. In Addo National Park you will meet the African elephants, sorrounded by an arid and semi-desert landscape, where these massive creatures roam free. Tsitsikamma National Park will leave you breathless with its unbelievable scenery. Stop here to view antelopes, dolphins and even whales.

Our local travel experts will be more than glad to guide you around this charming country, which is able to renovate itself while at the same time remaining faithful to its wild nature. Leave with viviTravels to South Africa: it will be a tour that you will never forget.
