Favourite Place Off the Beaten Track

“One of my favourite places is the Shakaland Zulu Cultural Village situated within the Entembeni Hills. After fun-filled days of wildlife viewing, shark cage diving, and other thrilling adventures available only in South Africa, this lower-profile village offers one of the most unique experiences in South African culture and history.”

“Visitors are immersed into the Zulu culture, as they are given the opportunity to participate in many Zulu traditions – beer brewing, spear making, hut building, pottery and weaving. Traditional song and dance are performed by Zulu natives, who also act as the village’s tour guides.”

On Safari

“The reserves that I recommend for a top notch safari experience are the Sabi Sands Game Reserve and the Kgalagardi Transfrontier. Both safaris offer some of the most outstanding locations for spotting the Big 5 as well as other exotic animals.”

“In regards to accommodations, the Sabi Sand provides more of a luxurious lodge selection, while the Kgalagardi Transfrontier offers everything from high-end lodging alternatives to more affordable options.”

“The world-renowned Kruger National Park offers one of the simplest, yet riveting safari experiences in all of Africa. One of the best self-drive safari locations in the country, Kruger National Park provides an exhilarating tour catered to every visitor.”

Not to Be Missed

  • Potjie Pot – “South African cuisine is known for its rich stews and flavorful braai, which is always cooked in a potjie pot (a round, three-legged cast-iron cauldron) – a must-have when visiting South Africa.”
  • Hand-Crafted Beaded Jewellery – “South African jewellery offers some of the greatest examples of meticulous craftsmanship, detailed beading, and stunning designs.”
