South Africa VacationsCosmopolitan Cape Town is a stop on many South Africa tours, with sightseeing at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, the Castle of Good Hope and the Houses of Parliament. At the city's Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, vacationers can wander amid interesting restaurants, pubs, and arts and crafts markets. For spectacular views of the city and Table Bay, hop the cable car for a ride to the summit of Table Mountain. Itineraries may also explore the wine-producing regions just outside Cape Town, where guests can sample vintages at historic estates.
Established in 1898, Kruger National Park is one of the world's oldest wildlife conservation areas, and it is a major highlight of South Africa trips. Prime game viewing here includes sightings of the "big five" -- lions, elephants, rhinos, buffalo and leopards.
Other stops can include Pilgrim's Rest, where gold was discovered in 1873; the capital city of Johannesburg; and the Wild Coast in the Eastern Cape, where visitors can relax on the beach and learn about Xhosa culture.
