South Africa Information

The Republic of South Africa, over the last few years, is shaping up to be one of the best destinations for adventure seekers all over the world. If you feel bored by just shopping, visiting museums, and eating out whenever you are on a holiday abroad, maybe it is time to see the world with fresh eyes by visiting South Africa. This country offers an unforgettable holiday that you must experience at least once in your life.

Gastronomic adventures

The culture of South Africa is very diverse, thanks to its long colonial history intertwining with the interesting local culture. Braai—or the South African version of a barbecue party—is the best way to experience the culinary offerings of the country. You can choose to have your meat barbecued over wood chips (the traditional way), which adds so much more to the flavor of the meat. The braai, like many barbecue parties in different parts of the world, is very laidback and relaxed, with close friends and families bonding over good food and good conversation. Bringing your own contribution to the spread is always a great idea, and you can choose to bring your own meat (beef, pork, lamb or chicken) or salads and other side dishes to share with everyone.

South Africas also home to bountiful vineyards (especially in the valley regions of Barrydale, Franschhoek, Paarl, and Stellenbosch), which produce some of the best wines in the continent. These delightful wines are perfect complements to braai food!

The great South African outdoors

A visit to South Africa will never be complete if you do not go on a safari. The oldest game reserve in South Africa, the Hluhluwe and Imfolozi National Park, is among the best safari destinations in the country, thanks to the large population of black and white rhinos. You could see these majestic and rare animals up close and personal—an experience you should not pass up on!
