South Africa is world-famous for its wide menu of pastimes, whether indoor or outdoor, active or sedentary. Go on safari, to catch a glimpse of the continent’s most iconic animals, or take to the awe-inspiring ragged coast for an adrenaline-pumping experience of swimming with sharks. You should also take a cable car ride up Table Mountain to drink in some truly astonishing views.
If spectacular views are your staple, then one elegant solution is to take a helicopter trip that flies over the city and Table Mountain and then down to Table Bay. If conservation is close to your heart, then guided tours will introduce you to the region’s baboons, or take you deep into the bush at the Aquila Game Reserve.
For culture-lovers, the Armchair Theatre puts on some impressive shows, while the Masque Theatre delivers a more traditional African experience.
