Driving in South Africa is an experience you can not miss, so don't think about it and rent a car at Cape Town Airport to tour the country. You will discover the people's day to day as you go through the villages, you will know places that would otherwise be impossible to know. Let's see what you need for your trip to be an unforgettable experience:
The white shark of Gansbaai
From the port of Gansbaai, about two hours drive from Cape Town you can see the great white shark from a boat. South Africa is the paradise of the great white shark thanks to cold currents coming from Antarctica. These currents favour the waters of South Africa to be rich in food, which catches the attention of many marine fauna, among them the white sharks.
Cape Town from a helicopter
Another must visit in South Africa is Cape Town, one of Africa's best-known metropolis. Between mountains a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic city arises in which diverse architectural styles survive. One of the best options to observe and understand the beauty of the place is to look at the city from the glass of a helicopter at hundreds of metres height. Everything seems different from there, the coast and the mountains take a new dimension and you realize the privileged location of the city. Another adventure is to climb the spectacular Table Mountain by cable car, one of the best things to see in South Africa. From the top you will have the best views of the whole city. Or if you like to contemplate the immensity of the sea, you can cross the coastal road to Chapmans Peak, where you will have amazing views from the edge with cliffs that will take your breath away.
Photo safari in Sabi Sand
A trip to South Africa becomes a vital experience when you visit the Kruger National Park. Nature lovers have a date in which it is probably one of the most valuable places to observe and photograph wildlife around the world. The park faces Zimbabwe to the north and Mozambique to the west, it is home not only to lions, elephants, zebras and leopards, but also you can see impalas, hippos, cheetahs, and giraffes in one of the largest and most beautiful natural environments on the planet.
The Betty's Bay Penguins
Halfway between Cape Town and Gansbaai the beaches and cliffs become part of the usual landscape of the area. At Betty's Bay we can observe one of the largest African penguin colonies in the world, it looks like a large family of 6000 members sunbathing on the coast.
Since you have a car you can visit some of the most famous and wild beaches in South Africa that will leave you open-mouthed. You can not miss Muizenberg, with its little houses of colours; Plettenberg Bay and Camps Bay.
