It is thought to be one of the most gorgeous places on earth because of the way the land changes itself every season. In spring the land goes from a dry, barren wasteland to a wonderland of color with splendid wild flowers that blanket the previously dull landscape.
A lot of SA history was written on these lands with the war of the British, the Boers and the Zulu. Some of the bloodiest battles were fought on this land, such as the battle of Islandwana and Rorke's Drift, which spawned the timeless movie called Zulu in 1964.
Still, for those who like history and the wilderness, is the Drakensberg Mountains. Drakensberg translates to Dragon Mountain in Afrikaans. The Drakensberg is the Wild West of South Africa and is a gorgeous, wild place.
A South African tours style holiday cannot be complete without experiencing the Cape Winelands. For all wine lovers on vacation in SA, the Cape Winelands is a must! Some of the very best towns to check out are Stellenbosch, Franschoek, Paarl and Durbanville Hills. Wine tours and wine festivals are run at some of the finest of the Capes wine estates, depending on the time of year, and offer some of the most picturesque farmlands around. Some even have tiny ranch house restaurant's on the property, and even have the tables set up in the vineyards, amongst the grape vines. While you enjoying your tasty lunch, you can buy wine straight from the farm stall you are lunching at. It genuinely is an experience well worth the trip!
In a nutshell, choosing to go the tour group type of holidaying can be just as gratifying and enjoyable as deciding on a self drive holiday. The upside to a tour is that you do not need GPS or maps to get around as your guide will know precisely where to go and the best ways to get there. It's different, and just as enjoyable, so give it some thought.
