South Africa – a country of amazing diversity of people, cultures, nature, landscapes and history- is always worth a visit. It has some of the most beautiful and unique wildlife sanctuaries as well as untouched beaches and fascinating cities like Cape Town.
South Africa has a wealth of history and culture that is untainted and unsurpassable. Whether you are visiting the majestic Table Mountain, Robben Island where Nelson Mandela spent 27 years as a prisoner or the Cradle of Human Kind in Gauteng which is the world’s most important fossil site, the Wine Routes of the Western Cape which boast of about 200 wine cellars, or the sleepy coastal and countryside towns, your experience is bound to be unforgettable.
The Garden Route is a popular destination for nature lovers with its unspoilt beaches, dramatic mountain ranges and lush forests. Visitors can enjoy the many hiking paths and take leisurely walks along the kilometres of beaches. For adrenalin-seekers there are activities like ocean safaris, Canopy Tours or bungee jumping at the famous Bloukrans Bridge.
Kruger National Park should not be missed either while you’re visiting South Africa. Located in the north-eastern part of the country it is easily accessible and offers some of the best opportunities for game viewing. Kruger National Park is home to a range of endangered animal species like the Black Rhino or Wild Dogs and is one of South Africa’s safari highlights.
South Africa also holds a wealth of different sporting events like the Two Oceans Ultra- Marathon, the Cape Argus Cycle Race or Cape Epic, the Comrades Ultra-Marathon, the ITU World Triathlon… just to name a few. The beautiful landscapes all over South Africa, great weather for most of the year, well organized sporting events as well as the friendly, supportive South Africans make this country one of the most attractive sporting destinations for beginners, intermediate athletes and professional sportsmen alike. Even more, it’s on the same time zone as Germany which makes for a comfortable start into a holiday without any jet-lag.
