One of the main draws for visitors to South Africa is the wide open space of the plains. This is one of the best countries in the world to experience a safari, with fantastic parks including the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in the Kalahari and the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. For a taste of a different kind of wildlife, those brave enough should consider a boat trip in False Bay or Gansbaai – hunting for Great White Sharks!
Known as the Mother City of South Africa, Cape Town is a must for anyone visiting the country. Surrounding a huge, impressive mountain, the city is lively, energetic and full of character. Cape Town is awash with art galleries, chic restaurants, fashion boutiques, trendy cafes and pumping clubs. The other face of the city can be seen in the upsetting poverty of the surrounding townships – trips can be arranged to visit these areas with reputable tour operators giving money back to the deprived areas.
Visit Durban or Experience Cape Town – With complete peace of mind
For a seaside holiday with a difference, Durban is certainly worth checking out. A huge stretch of expansive golden sand provides the perfect place to soak up the sun, while the city itself is both beautiful and intriguing; a mix of old colonial buildings and modern art deco architecture. The suburbs are crammed with funky bars and excellent restaurants; with the country’s largest population of Indian decent, the curry in Durban is superb.
Travelling to South Africa is not without its dangers. There is a high risk of crime in many of the cities, as well as numerous infectious diseases not found in Europe. To make sure you’re fully protected on holiday here, it’s wise to invest in comprehensive travel insurance. Not doing so could put your health and finances in dire straights. Fortunately, Insure & Away offer a great range of travel policies for all different types of travel, from family holiday cover to backpacking trip insurance.
