South Africa Bucket List Travel Ideas

  • Table Mountain

Why is South Africa considered a top bucket list destination?

A land of true diversity, South Africa offers an “all in one” experience for its visitors from a cosmopolitan city escape in Cape Town, to the open coastal road of the Garden Route. Immerse yourself in the Zululand culture and learn about the history of the people of South Africa. Of course, the ultimate adventure of an African safari and breathtaking views of canyons and waterfalls makes South Africa truly a “bucket list” Country.

What are the top bucket list activities on a South Africa vacation?

No trip to South Africa would be complete without embracing the amazing and truly unique experience of an open-vehicle Safari. In Cape Town, go hiking up Table Mountain or try shark diving off the Cape Coast. For a more unique experience, spend the night in a beehive hut in Zululand. Adventure junkies can go ziplining in Mpumalanga  or try bungee jumping one of the highest bungee jumps in the world ;
