South Africa

Lonely Planet Magazine (US) - - Easy Trips -

With its beaches and moun­tains, wildlife and wine – and let’s not for­get vi­brant cul­ture and cos­mopoli­tan Cape Town (rightly re­garded as one of the world’s most beau­ti­ful cities) – South Africa has long been one of the world’s most al­lur­ing coun­tries. Crawl­ing with iconic African wildlife, big and small, South Africa’s na­tional parks and re­serves are premier sa­fari des­ti­na­tions, and these ad­ven­tur­ous for­ays into in­cred­i­ble wilder­ness cost a frac­tion of those else­where. In 2018, the coun­try’s many at­trac­tions will be bol­stered by “Nel­son Man­dela Cen­te­nary 2018: Be the Legacy,” an of­fi­cial pro­gram of events – some sport­ing, some ed­u­ca­tional, oth­ers de­voted to the arts – hon­or­ing the le­gendary late South African ac­tivist and for­mer pres­i­dent. There is more to see than ever be­fore, and fa­vor­able ex­change rates, mak­ing 2018 a phe­nom­e­nal year to visit South Africa.

Cape of Good Hope, South Africa » Don’t Miss Take a self-drive sa­fari in South Africa’s 7,500-square-mile Kruger Na­tional Park: wait at ze­bra cross­ings, pause for breath at rhino crashes, and skirt care­fully through the long shad­ows of ele­phants.
