A vast, varied and unbelievably beautiful country is South Africa. Take into account the combined scale of France and Spain and about twice that of Texas. The vast semi-desert, the Karoo over the middle and is one of the largest safaris destinations in Africa, Kruger National Park, stretches from picturesque towns of the West Cape to the raw northerly subtropical coast of KwaZulu Natal. Also, it is one of the great cultural meeting points on the African continent, which is now manifest in the major cities and is overshadowed by decades of forced racial segregation.

South Africa’s Top 10 Locations
The economic hub of Africa and the traditional point of entry into Southern Africa is Johannesburg or Jo’burg. It is also the second-largest city on the continent with more than 3 million inhabitants. It’s where wealth and fortunes are traditionally made and found. It was a cruel, concrete jungle that was stereotyped by violence, but people strongly defended it as a town of opportunity and raw energy. The infamous town of Soweto has become more and more popular with tourists.
Cape Town is the most popular touristic destination in all of Africa, situated on the southwest tip of South Africa’s Western Cape Province. The metropolis is mild, Mediterranean, well-developed, and has a spectacular natural environment. In a relatively short zone between Table Mountain and Table Bay, the center of Cape Town is situated.

In the lush Boland Basin, about 80 km northeast of Cape Town, the majority of South Africa’s vineyards are situated.

Five-star restaurants, exclusive stores, and charming hotels can also be found in Cape Winelands. A visit to the wine country of South Africa is an indulgent trip.
The second biggest city in South Africa in Durban on the east coast of South Africa. Southern Africans have been made famous for the subtropical climate in Durban, its scenic beaches, and the nearby vicinity of Johannesburg.

The Drakensberg is a mountainous area that forms the border between South Africa and the mountain kingdom of Lesotho and offers some of the country’s most awe-inspiring landscapes. The name ‘Drakensberg’ comes from the Netherlands, which means ‘mountains of the dragon.’ The name ‘Drakensberg’ is called ‘Quathlamba,’ which means ‘Spear battlement.’ Zulu is a better summary of the sheer climb but it catches a little of the otherworldly feeling of the Drakensberg.
