Insider tips and the best things to do South Africa

By EricAdamson

South Africa can be tasted in large tin pots that belong to Soweto mamas, or in bottles and barrels from the Western Cape wine farms.

South Africa smells great, from the wilderness of Kruger National Park to the sea breeze at Cape of Good Hope. Intakt reisen trips will allow you to discover the most important, as well as the least known, cultural and scenic highlights in the region. Intakt reisen places great emphasis on giving you as much personal access as possible to people in holiday countries to allow you to understand the daily and cultural conditions.

South Africa can be heard in the life-affirming sounds made by street musicians and the calls of the hyenas as the day ends in the game reserve.

South Africa is also visible and you can admire it. When the clouds descend Table Mountain like icing, they do so in slow motion, so that you don’t miss anything. Or when the Drakensberg grass looks so green and juicy that it almost hurts you ideas.

Cape Town
The Mother City of South Africa, and the undisputed national treasure. Cape Town, which is surrounded by Signal Hill and Devil’s Peak, is idyllically situated on the rugged Atlantic Coast.
The city is home to many immigrants from France, Germany, the Netherlands and Indonesia. There is much to see in the Western Cape region, from the Table Mountain National Park’s unique landscape to the beautiful coastline of Camps Bay, Clifton and Llandudno to the tranquil wine region. Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope are worth a visit, as well as the penguins of Simon’s Town or the colorful Muizenburg beach houses.

Jo’burg, also known by Jozi or Jozi is South Africa’s heartbeat. It is home to the city’s young, ambitious, and vibrant population. There are many hot areas in Jo’burg, from Melville to Maboneng. This is the city with the most successful urban renewal projects worldwide, including alternative shops, market-like studios, and trendy cafes. Poor and rich live together – the most expensive areas are right next to Soweto, which is reputed to be the largest township in Africa. Jozi is a global metropolis that never stops learning and always develops.

Garden Route
The Garden Route is for you if you enjoy road trips. The N2 motorway takes you to the south, from Mossel Bay in Western Cape Province to near Port Elizabeth in Eastern Cape. It is home to a national park as well as Knysna lagoons. Jeffrey’s Bay is the best place for surfers.

Stellenbosch & Franschhoek
Stellenbosch is South Africa’s unrivalled wine capital. It is home to many vineyards and a picturesque town center with a museum, as well as the Dutch Reformation Church. Franschhoek is another wine region where the French Huguenot immigrant heritage can be seen.

Kruger National Park and Game Reserves
It is not easy to miss a safari. Kruger National Park is about as large as Belgium and is known for its wild elephants, lions leopards, buffaloes, hippos, giraffes zebras, gnus, and other animals. These animals can be viewed on game drives or from luxury encampments in the early morning and late afternoon.

There are also a few private parks west of Kruger such as Klaserie Nature Reserve or Timbavati Private Nature & Game Reserve. Sabi Sand Game Reserve is another option. Umbata Nature Reserve is another.

South Africa’s surf mecca, the Golden Mile is known for its harbour and promenade. The Temple of Understanding and mosques such as the Jumah Mosque are two examples of the city’s multi-cultural atmosphere.

The executive capital is well-known for its parks and gardens filled with aloe, acacia, and fig trees.

The Drakensberg is the highest mountain range in the country, at 3,482 metres high. It is perfect for hiking, climbing, and riding.

The Midlands lie between the KwaZulu–Natal coast, and the Drakensbergs. They are home to forested hills and arable land, lush plains and charming villages, as well as taverns and taverns.

Port Elizabeth
Port Elizabeth is located on the Garden Route and boasts some of the best sunny days in the country. There are beautiful beaches in the city, especially Summerstrand and Humewood.

East London
The romantic east coast is famous for its beaches near East London, such as Eastern Beach, Orient Beach, and Nahoon Beach.
