Children can have lots of fun if you take them on a vineyard tractor trip that will teach them how to make vinegar and verjuice, among so many other treats.
If it is wine bath that you desire, you can head off to the Mont Destin in Stellenbosch. You and your companions can have the whole vineyard to yourselves. Relax in this activity fit for royalties, while you all indulge on estate wine and feast your eyes on the beauty of your surroundings.
The main attractions of Cape Town are its beautiful beaches – so attractive that a lot of people still flock to them even though the water is a bit chilly. After all, if you don’t feel like swimming, these beaches still provide a great venue for basking in the sun, play beach volleyball, or simply hanging out with your companions.
There are wide sandy stretches on the Atlantic seaboard. This is also ideal for watching sunsets while savoring the sea temperatures that the beaches here are known for.
If you love to go walking, you can head on to the Noordhoek Beach, which is also frequented by kite fliers and surf enthusiasts. Surfers also seek the Kommetjie Beach for its excellent waves.
Kruger National Park
At Kruger National Park, you can head on to its northern section to marvel at the one-of-a-kind biodiversity that you will find there. There are fever tree forests and forests of giant baobabs. It is like being transported into the lands of fairies and witches.
To get an even better feel of the park, you can stay at one of its private lodges, the Pafuri Camp, which is being maintained by the Makuleke people, who were trained by experienced rangers.
This venue is filled with scenic sights, natural wonders, birds, and forests. It is home to various animals, which include leopards, buffaloes, rhinos, lions, and elephants.
There is also evidence that Homo erectus people lived here in the past. You can find hand axes that existed since the Stone Age and dinosaur fossils that are still unexcavated.
Your trip to South Africa should not just be a sightseeing trip. It could be an educational one as well.
Take this chance to immerse in South Africa’s rural areas and get a better insight into the core of the freedom struggle. To make the most of your time and ensure that you see the right sights and places, it is best that you book into a Soweto township tour.

The tour is going to be better if you are going to stay overnight in the place. This way, you can also experience Soweto’s colorful nightlife and social scene.
The Garden Route
The Garden Route houses a great variety of attractions, such as secluded artist communities, ancient forests, modern malls, golf courses, mountain hideaways, beaches, retirement properties, craft centers, and a lot more.
You can find here the ostrich capital of the world, the Oudtshoorn.
As you take the Garden Route tour, you might as well visit other nearby towns, too, such as the Wilderness, Plettenberg Bay, Calitzdorp, Knysna, and Sedgefield.
Outside Plettenberg Bay, you can find the Bramon Wine Farm, which is a recent addition in the area.
You can easily get to the Garden Route when you are in Cape Town.

The whole area is almost whimsical with the enthralling mix of ecosystems.
