Most travellers always find themselves wondering what to do with their time once they land at their destination. If you are visiting South Africa for the first time, or if you are a frequent visitor but you are short of ideas on what to do while visiting; here are some fun activities you should consider:
Go for a safari
Nothing can replace the magic of trekking through the African terrain as you marvel at what nature provides. Most South African towns have a provision for going on safaris, so you just need to liaise with the hotel you will be staying in to see if they have a provision for organising one. If not, you can look for a travel agent to do it for you.
This may sound cliché, but one of the most fun things to do when travelling is meeting people. South Africa has diverse cultures, and you can learn a lot about the country by simply interacting with people. Go to the bar and drink their beer. You can also get someone to teach you one of the many languages they speak.
Visit the Coast
South Africa has one of the most beautiful coastlines, where you can take a walk around the beaches or go to Jeffreys bay for surfing. Some people find that simply sitting by the shores and watching water rising and falling can be extremely calming.
Go to the markets
The open air markets not only offer cheap bargains when you are shopping, but they also expose you to the unfiltered daily lifestyle of the local people. There are several malls and open air markets that you can explore for fun. However, you should ensure that you are safe wherever you are going. If you are not so familiar with the place, get a local guide to help you move around.
