South Africa, between ocean and desert
South Africa is often referred to as the world in one country, this is because South Africa offers a great diversity of landscapes that will leave those who visit it speechless.
The starting point of the trip is Cape Town, a cosmopolitan city and one of the three capitals of South Africa, it is one of the main destinations in South Africa thanks to the beautiful coasts and beaches nearby, the possibility of whale watching, wonderful landscapes and a great choice food and wine.
A short distance from the center of Cape Town is the elegant Camps Bay with numerous clubs overlooking the beach, Boulders Beach, with its colony of African penguins, the Cape of Good Hope and Chapman’s Peak Drive one of the 10 most beautiful scenic drives of the world.
The West Coast is a magical place, in the period in which we will travel the coast gives life to an incredible phenomenon: the flowering of the desert.
This coastal strip of the Karoo Desert morphs into a color palette with millions of colorful flowers covering the landscape.
The Karoo is also the inland area of South Africa, a vast area that offers spectacular landscapes with incredible rock formations such as those that can be seen in the Camdeboo National Park and countries where time seems to have stopped at the time of the settlers.
South Africa is the most beautiful place on earth. Sure, I’m biased, but when you combine natural beauty … and the fact that the region is a paradise for Africa’s most beautiful wildlife … Then I think we’ve been blessed with a truly wonderful land.
The Karoo was the scene of the diamond rush, and Kimberley retains the most surprising testimony of this mad rush for wealth: the Big Hole is the largest open pit mine in the world and has now been transformed into a unique tourist destination.
Johannesburg is an incredible city full of history where you can visit the Apartheid Museum, the house where Mandela lived and the township of Soweto which played a fundamental role in the fight against apartheid.
Jozi, as the locals call it, is also full of craft microbreweries and great trendy restaurants.
