Make the Most of your Visit to South Africa with these Top Planning and Preparation Tips

It is a country that never stops doling out gifts to the traveler – world-class surf breaks, eclectic local cuisine, mountains to climb, cities to visit, tiny towns to hide away in, desert landscapes to photograph and of course, wildlife to watch. South Africa’s extraordinary variety is both its biggest draw and its biggest challenge, at least when it comes to trip planning, and much research is needed to decide where to go, what to do and how long to stay. A trip of less than two weeks is less than ideal – three would be a better bet if you can manage the time away.
