With world-class vineyards, incredible national parks, and a gateway into the best animal safari and viewing experiences in the world, the major draw of visiting South Africa is the sheer variety of activities and opportunities available here.
Of course, no trip to South Africa would be complete without touring the country's capital city of Cape Town. Cape Town is surrounded by tons of breathtaking scenery -- both in the form of places to relax, and places to hike and enjoy an adventure. Be sure not to miss the Cape of Good Hope, Boulders Beach, and Table Mountain also.
Nearby Stellenbosch is famous for the many wineries and vineyards that are scattered throughout this region. Don't miss the Stellenbosch vineyards, the Peter Falke Wines, the Thelema Mountain Vineyards, and the Welmoed Winery.
Johannesburg and Nelson Mandela's former home are certainly worth a visit, as is Kruger National Park -- one of South Africa's most famous and beloved tourist attractions and the best way to get up-close-and-personal with endangered and majestic animals.
South Africa is a year-round travel destination with pleasant temperatures for practically twelve months of the year.
