South Africa is a picturesque country, full of natural wonder as well as man made beauty. The Mzansi’s beauty extends from its towns to its countryside making it truly a rainbow nation.
Here are the top places to visit if you are looking for breathtaking beauty in South Africa:
Kruger National Park
This is South Africa’s premier national park and home to all the Big Five. It is also scenic for a host of flora species and beautiful birds.
Visiting the Kruger falls into two distinct seasons. In April to November (dry winter), trees have little foliage and animals are easy to spot at drinking spots. Between November and February, the weather is rainy and warm. A lot of flowers bloom and different bird species can be observed migrating.
The mountain with a flat top is adjacent to Cape town and offers a great view of the port city and its surroundings. Visitors can get to the top using hiking routes or riding the rotating cable automobiles. The Robben Island is far off but boats heading to the location can be observed from ‘the table.’
The mountain is part of a national park that goes by the same name that offers beaches, walking trails and a beautiful penguin colony.
Johannesburg struggle memorials
A significant part of South Africa’s history consists of a great struggle for equality among the nation’s diverse people. No place tells the story of the struggle better than Johannesburg.
Here stand the great Apartheid Museum and the Constitution Hill, two icons that tell an amazing story.
Besides being the root of the country’s black history and continuing livelihood, Soweto also offers sites for bicycle tours and bungee jumping. It is a township within the City of Johannesburg with a special contribution to the city’s richness.
The administrative capital of the Mzansi offers an insight into the leaders and political framework that drives this country. A visit to the Union Buildings, the national Zoological gardens, and the Voortrekker Monument tells real the story of what kind of nation South Africa ix.
