When it comes to travel to the continent, one destination that’s always at the top of visitors’ list is South Africa. The iconic country has a distinct place in history and is home to transformational leaders like former South African President and anti-apartheid revolutionary, Nelson Mandela.

The city of Johannesburg is best known for its cool urban vibes, but if you want to experience a more picturesque side of the country, the coastal city of Cape Town is where you need to be. From the views of Table Mountain and sobering history of Robben Island to caged shark tours and wine experiences in the countryside, Cape Town will blow you away.

If you’re looking for a little help in planning your first or next South Africa adventure, here are a few tips from our exclusive guide that will help you get started on the journey of a lifetime.
