3.Art & Design
Cape Town was renowned as the World Design Capital in 2014 and you can immediately see why as soon as you visit. From the brightly painted buildings in the Bo-Kaap area to the Afro-chic decor in the bar and restaurants. From the bathing chalets of Muizenberg to the striking street art.

Cape Town is a true celebration of diversity. Christians, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, and traditional African beliefs coexist peacefully in this proudly multicultural city.
South Africa is home of the famous Kruger National Park – one of the world’s greatest wildlife-watching destinations. It holds together all of Africa’s iconic safari species including elephant, lion, cheetah, rhino, buffalo, giraffe, hippo, zebra, over 137 other mammals and over 500 varieties of bird. Addo Elephant National Park is another national treasure. When Addo was proclaimed a national park in 1931, there were only 11 elephants left; today there are more than 600 in the park, and you’d be unlucky not to see some. A day or two at Addo is a highlight of any visit to this part of the Eastern Cape, not only for the elephants but for the lions, zebras, black rhinos, Cape buffaloes, spotted hyenas, and myriad birds. The park is also one of few which boasts the ‘Big Seven’, thanks to sightings of great white sharks and southern right whale (in season) of its coastal sections.

7.Blyde River Canyon
One of the world’s largest canyons and one of South Africa’s most outstanding natural sights – little wonder that it is increasingly popular with international visitors.
