You can kick-start your trip from the legislative capital of South Africa, Cape Town. All South Africa trip packages will be incomplete without it in it. It is the host for Cape of Good Hope, where you get amazingly beautiful panoramic views of the city from the top. The walk to the top is sensational, you can do a little bird watching if you are into those sort of activities. There are more than 250 species of birds and ostriches along the way. They also have the Boulders beach; a stroll on the coast with the wild waves can be a bit relaxing. Oh yes, and of course the cherry on the top, you can find cute african penguins waddling there making you crave for a quick selfie with them. Sunrise views at Lion's Head Signal Hill and heart-warming sunset at Camps Bay with the sky painting itself in all shades of pink and orange is another stunning sight to behold on your Cape town honeymoon. A street art walking tour of Woodstock & a tour of Cape winelands are some other interesting sights to include on your Cape Town Tours.
Garden Route is just hours away from Cape Town. It provides an experience that includes going for elephant rides, greeting monkeys, visiting bird sanctuaries, observing the dolphins at the shores and thereby discovering the animal trail of Africa. Also, the place being malaria-free makes it a worry-free place to visit on your South Africa tours.
Oom Paul Kruger parkland
South Africa is known for its legendary life preserves just like the Oom Paul Kruger parkland. It includes luxury accommodations and thrilling walks with experienced guides. Most of the lodges have interactive programmes for teenagers and additionally give the prospect to encounter animals that they're going to remember for a lifetime on their South Africa trip packages.
Hermanus, the most popular city in South Africa is renowned for its shore-based whale-watching. You can find plenty of Whale-watching boat tours here on your travel packages from South Africa. Its sheltered, shallow waters attract southern right whales that migrate to the region each year to mate and breed. A 10 km long cliff-side walk with built-in telescopes and benches offer visitors plenty of opportunities to view these social animals as they raise their flukes in the sea breezes.
To have a tiny bit of history, take a boat ride to the Robben Island which was an offshore prison now turned into a museum. You will have guides who were former inmates, so a good dosage of history and prison stories right there. Being in Africa, you are in for some beautiful national parks and experiencing it up close on your South Africa itinerary.
The Kruger National Park
The Kruger National Park, South Africa’s first national park and Africa’s largest. They are known for providing so many varieties of traditional safari experiences that satiate your widlife love. Home to so many species and specializing in safari rides that give you a tour of the big 5 - Buffalos, Elephants, Lions, Leopards & Rhinos, a Kruger experience is very hard to skip on your South Africa Safari packages.
Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park
The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, one of the largest wilderness areas in the world, is the official merger of the Gemsbok National Park in Botswana and the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park in South Africa. Gnarled camel thorn trees, red sands, golden grasslands, and deep blue skies provide a bold backdrop for photographs and game viewing. The park is a vast conservation area that is home to the famous black-maned Kalahari lions, migrating herds of wildebeest, gemsbok, springbok, and eland. Other predators like lion, cheetah, and leopard can also be viewed here.

Also, get close to Africa's incredible wildlife at Lion's Park, a conservation enclosure for lions, cheetahs, hyena, wild dogs and more.
Drakensberg, a mountainous region that forms the boundary between South Africa and the mountain kingdom of Lesotho, offers some of the country’s most awe-inspiring landscapes. The word Drakensberg, derived from the Dutch language meaning Dragon Mountains is home to country's largest peaks. Tourists flock here to hike the scenic mountain trails, rock climb, abseil, parasail, fish for trout, and raft the waters of the fast-flowing rivers. Hot air balloon rides are a great way to appreciate Drakensberg's dramatic topography.
