Cities in South Africa

South Africa’s diversity and size means that each of the country’s cities offers a unique experience for visitors.

Johannesburg — This is where most Europeans and Americans first touch down in South Africa, a bustling metropolis with over 12 million residents. Home to several major sites related to the apartheid struggle that defined South Africa in the 20th century, it’s a city that respects its past as it leans into the future.  Whether you’re interested in wildlife and scenic vistas or want to get closer to history, Johannesburg is a must-visit for every tourist.

Cape Town   —We’re not exaggerating when we say that Cape Town is one of the single most beautiful places on the planet. The city is known for its active harbor and magnificent seascapes, but it’s the people that make it special.

Durban  —With a thriving, unique culture, Durban is a popular tourist destination thanks to its sub-tropical climate, pristine beaches and warm ocean.

Mpumalanga —  This region is home to some of the most renowned natural wonders in South Africa, including the oldest park in the country (Kruger National Park), the world’s third deepest gorge (Blyde River Canyon) and the world’s oldest known caverns (Sudwala Caves).
