Top 10 Things to See and Do in South Africa
Cape Point Nature Reserve
Cape Point lies at the tip of Cape Peninsula, a nature reserve inside Table Mountain National Park. Originally named Cape of Storms, it features an 1859 lighthouse. Take the Flying Dutchman funicular ride on a guided tour and you are transported 87m above sea level. This is a nature lover’s paradise with over 250 varieties of birds, buck and baboons and the view at the end of the Earth. There is a world-class restaurant and curio shop.
Table Mountain is probably the world's most recognisable natural icons, featuring its distinctive flat top which gives it its name. You can either take a 5-minute cable car ride or a day’s hike almost to the top. Riding up, you appreciate the spectacular views as the cable car has rotating floors and big windows. Enjoy the magnificent panoramic vista of fabulous flora and fauna from the self-service restaurant on your guided tour.
Nelson Mandela Spent 18 Years in Jail at the Brutal Robben Island Prison. This guided tour is an emotional pilgrimage to the former penal colony where lots of PAC as well as ANC members, including the Nelson Mandela, were imprisoned. It holds emblematic status. Your guides may be former inmates, telling you about prison life. It gives an intriguing interactive exhibit of the Nelson Mandela Gateway, where the tour ferry leaves.
Tsitsikamma National Park
For all nature lovers; a guided tour to the Big Tree in Tsitsikamma National Park is something never to be missed. Estimated as being between 600 and 800 years old, this majestic tree stands 36.6 meters high and has a trunk circumference of 9 meters. A very pleasant and gentle 10-minute walk from the green, fresh forest takes you for the tree or, for the more venturous among you; they are two more challenging trails.
Take a sightseeing tour to Johannesburg, South Africa’s biggest city. For a place that began its life as a gold-mining settlement in the 19th century, you will be amazed at all there is to see and do.

Another fascinating city to take a guided tour of is Soweto, situated just south of Johannesburg. It started as a township under the apartheid system for black people but has become so much more now.
