Elephants, rhino and giraffes galore, why not take your experience with the popular Buffelsdrift Game Lodge? Travel Time will be able to take you to there if you are interested.
The Cango Caves are also somewhere to be aware of for all the right reasons. Almost like an underground world, limestone has made this cave into a spectacular wonder of dripstone caverns, vast halls and towering formations. You can choose if you would like to do the standard tour or the adventure that is half an hour longer and you are able to delve further into the caves. It is up to you which one you choose, but it is defiantly worth a visit.
Unsurprisingly, Johannesburg is known as the urban forest with over 6 million trees. But do not let that fool you; Johannesburg is full of energy and life. It is almost buzzing with the amount of fun that is in the area. The nightlife is second to none, there are such a variety of places to go, you will struggle to choose! Jazz bars, live music bars, comedy clubs, and kwaito music all help to fill the streets with an uplifting, cool atmosphere.
Must do activities whilst you are visiting, is to find out about Johannesburg’s turbulent history. Take a look around the Apartheid Museum and Constitution Hill to really get to understand everything that went on. Also, take a look around one of the many malls. Rosebank mall has a splendid, traditional African market which is great if you are interested in different cultures.
South Africa’s garden route is quite simply, a beautiful stretch of coastline. It winds its way through 200km, passing forests and shorelines. Because you won’t be able to see all of the Garden Route, focus on the extraordinary resort of Knysna. It has a beautiful lagoon setting with a backdrop of lush green mountains. Swim, fish, or sail in this untouched wonder.
