Things To Do In South Africa

There are many things to do in South Africa and this vast country is extremely diverse with several weather systems and regions that stretch from a city break in Cape Town to a Safari in the North.

The best thing to do in South Africa is of course joining one of those famous safaris, but this isnít the only way to explore the game reserves as hot air balloon rides, hiking, biking, canoeing and mountaineering are all options available.

Other popular activities include diving with the Great White Sharks or dolphins, surfing, playing golf  at one of the world class courses and for the brave, riding an ostrich. A more relaxed method of enjoying the South African wilderness includes taking a luxury train ride whilst the more adventurous can take a canoe or raft down the Orange River with most operators in the Richterveld National Park. These trips usually last for several days and offer camping under the stars.
