Great South African places to visit

Constantia in the Cape Winelands

For leisurely day trips around Cape Town, why not just start with exploring the many Wine Estates in the Cape Region.

There are plenty of things to see and do in the Cape Winelands, so the decision which Wine Estate to visit is not an easy one:

Chapmans Peak Drive

If you have not driven over Chapman's Peak Drive, you have not seen the Cape! One of Cape Town's best attractions is the fabulous mountain drive leading from Hout Bay to Noordhoek. I recommend to do this trip especially when the weather is nice or it is too windy to go up Table Mountain.

Dam in the Overberg Cape Countryside

The Overberg Region is a wonderful place to visit either for a daytrip or a short holiday to get away from the city life.

The Cape Country Meander Route gives you lots of options for either a relaxed gourmet weekend or a activity filled day out.

Cederberg Mountains

If you are planning a weekend away, how about the Cederberg Mountains?

There you will not only find remote wilderness and lots of rest, but also stunning flower displays in the spring or visit the observatory and see the stars.

On Safari in South Africa

If you ever wanted to go on safari, a trip up north to the Kruger Park really is a must visit when you travel in South Africa.

But there are also some safari parks in the Cape which are well worth a visit.
