Mini Guide to South Africa

Main Cities and Towns

Cape Town

Cape Town is the legislative capital of South Africa, being home to the Houses of Parliament, and also the second largest city in the country. The city is named after the nearby Cape of Good Hope (a peninsula) and has plenty to offer for all ages and tastes.

Visitors can go to Bo-Kaap, a colorful neighborhood in the mountains, explore the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, take a cable car to the Table Mountain, or for the daring ones, experience shark cage diving with the great whites.

Jeffrey’s Bay

Sometimes dubbed the world’s surfing Mecca, Jeffrey’s Bay became famous after appearing in the 1966 movie Endless Summer. Visitors can visit the surf museum or nearby St. Francis Bay town, but the main attraction is the stunning beaches. If you just want to sunbathe, head to Dolphin Beach or Kabeljous-on-Sea, but if you’re looking for the best waves, your best bet is Super Tubes, Boneyards, or Albatross.
