The Top 10 - Activites in South Africa


1. Hiking up Table Mountain

It’s easy to run out of superlatives when talking about Table Mountain. Its triple status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a National Park and a World 7 Wonder of Nature is amply justified.

The famous Table Mountain offers some of the best hiking on the planet. There are half- and full-day hikes and climbs, from leisurely strolls on Table Mountain’s summit to adventure ascents off the beaten track.
