For some of the best things to do in South Africa, begin your vacation in Cape Town, where you can relax on one of many fine beaches, which include popular Clifton, Bloubergstrand, and Llandudno. If you are feeling more adventurous, you can book a tour with a local tour operator to enjoy some shark cage diving, fishing, or bungee jumping. If you want to get out of the city for a while, head to Kruger National Park, one of Africa's largest game reserves.
