South Africa's Best Spots
Getting away - no flight required!
Slip-on your sneakers, jump in the car and let us TRVL South Africa.
After staying home for the better part of the year all of us have itchy feet and are more ready than we have ever been to explore and now is the time to really explore our own backyard. We've rounded up three of our favourite destinations that will have you packing your bags today.
Darling in the Western Cape
Adventure will find you on a trip to Darling, if you are travelling the hour or so from Cape Town or road-tripping the 15 hours from Johannesburg your final destination is well worth it. Hidden amongst fields of wildflowers and a million miles away from the stress and strains of city life this quaint town is best enjoyed at a slow speed with an explorers undertone.
The Kruger National Park but North
Even though many of us have been lucky enough to visit the park a few times in our lives looking back have we really explored all that the park is? The northern section of the park is the least-visited, most people prefer the south for its accessibility and wildlife density. The north, on the other hand, contains three-quarters of the park's diversity in just 1% of its area. Exploring the beautiful landscapes flocked with birds and scenes of herds that end up on the front cover of magazines is well worth the drive. Valleys, forests and dramatic gorges all at your feet without the crowds.
Hiking trails, rock pools and culture in abundance this is truly an oasis in the bushveld. The Vhembe region is nothing short of spectacular and home to the mystical baobab trees, exploring this region awash with its vivid blue skies and mountain ranges that stretch for miles on end truly makes you feel like opportunities for exploration are endless.
So, what are you waiting for?
