Have you ever wanted to visit the “Mother Land”? Well if you have, there are a number of different things you can get into when visiting South Africa. On your visit, you will be able to see why so many people around the world call it the Mother Land. South Africa is a country filled with a mixture of cultures and things for you to experience. You definitely won’t be disappointed on your travels.

If you enjoy being active while on vacation then your first stop should be to the city of Cape Town. You see Cape Town is one of the cities in South Africa and is well known for being home to one of the seven wonders of the world. We are talking about none other than Table Mountain. Table Mountain has a number of different hiking trails that thousands of tourists come to visit each year. Now if you are tired once you reach the top of the mountain, you can use the cable cart to go down. Think of it as two adventures at once.

South Africa is also known for its beautiful beaches and its marine life. If you are looking to tick off a bucket list item, Hermanus might just have you covered. In Hermanus, you are able to go shark cage diving. That’s right, you will be able to come face to face with one of the ocean’s most feared creatures. Now you won’t be swimming freely in the ocean, you will be placed in a cage with professionals right by your side.

Many people come to South Africa to see the “Big Five”. This includes lions, elephants, rhinos, buffalos, and leopards. If you are looking for a hands-on experience with these animals you can get just that with a visit to the Kruger National Park where you can go on a safari and take a tour.
