South Africa has it all – from exquisite beaches and modern cities to breathtaking scenery and wildlife. The list of things to do while on holiday in South Africa is endless. Here are my top picks for what to do there!
Spend a day with African Penguins at Boulders beach
Boulder’s beach, with its wind sheltered bays and safe sandy shores, is home to a breeding colony of over 2000 endangered African Penguins! The beach remains the only place in the world where one can get up-close to African penguins. I could watch them for hours, they are so cute, little fellows. You don’t need to enter the park to see penguins. From Simon Town to Boulders Beach you can find them along the cost. It’s amazing to be able to see wild animals in their natural environment. You can even swim with them just behave nice, don’t touch or feed them or interrupt their daily routine.

Hike in the Drakensberg mountains
Drakensberg is the main mountain range of Southern Africa. The Drakensberg rises to more than 3,475 m and extends roughly northeast to southwest for 1,125 km parallel to the southeastern coast of South Africa. The name Drakensberg derived from the Afrikaans name Drakensberge meaning “Dragon Mountains”. If you like nature and stunning landscapes or you just want to take the best photos ever then this is the place you want to be. It is not all about the mountains and spectacular scenery but also about traditional villages and the local people that live there.
