South Africa is quickly becoming one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. When you look at all the amazing things this country has to offer, it’s easy to see why! This article will pick out three of the best things you should do if you travel to South Africa this year:

Go For A Cruise On A River

The amazing thing about traveling in South Africa is that it presents you with opportunities you don’t get in other countries across the globe. As an example, while in South Africa, you can go on a river cruise. This is an exceptional way to explore part of the country in a whole new manner. River cruises are exciting as you get to see a lot of animals as you cruise. Not only will you pass by the ones on land, but you’ll also see plenty of local hippos and crocodiles splashing around in the water near you. It truly is an incredible experience and something you’re not likely to enjoy anywhere else on planet earth. There are plenty of travel and tourism companies that offer these cruises for you to book. A lot of them even include free drinks for you to sip on as you view so many amazing scenes from the safety of your boat.

Become A Volunteer

A great way to get more from your travels to this country is to become a volunteer. There are loads of opportunities to volunteer in South Africa, and one of them might be perfect for you. They include things like taking part in conservation projects and looking after the local wildlife. It’s the perfect idea for anyone that really wants to get in touch with nature and make a difference to the wildlife that’s under threat in this part of the world. What’s more, volunteering can be the best way for you to travel around any country. The projects you take up can lead you all around South Africa, helping you explore some of the best cities and unearth hidden gems you wouldn’t have known existed.

Visit Cape Town

If you’re restricted for time, then you’ll want to ensure you get the most out of your South African travels. Perhaps you don’t have time to explore all over the country, and are looking for one place to go? In which case, you have to visit Cape Town. It’s one of the most popular and beautiful tourist locations in the world. There is so much for you to see and explore in this great city. The views are astonishing, and the glorious Table Mountain makes for the most gorgeous backdrop. You can also enjoy various safaris or trips to national parks in the area. Then, when you get a bit peckish, you can sample some of the best South African food at one of the many amazing restaurants that the city has to offer.

Give one (or all!) of these things are try if you plan on flying to this country in 2017. It’s definitely a beautiful place to see and somewhere that everyone should add to their travel bucket list.
