From desert lands and coastlines, to the famous nature reserves sheltering the "Big Five" game animals, the country has natural charm in spades. The main cities provide a wealth of bars, clubs, shopping districts, and entertainment options to please the most demanding visitors, while traditional life can still be admired and respected in a collection of villages with beehive-style huts and an age-old cultural heritage. When in need of a minute to digest all that's happened during your trip to South Africa, sit down to a braai (traditional barbecue), and a bottle of wine made at one of the country's thriving vineyards.

Gift & Specialty Shops · Historic Sites · National Parks
Landlocked Swaziland remains one of the few absolute monarchies in the world--it's also one of the smallest countries in Africa. Known for its peacefulness and welcoming atmosphere, the country doesn't rush past you (even in the most built-up areas) like some of its neighbors. This laidback atmosphere suits the country, where age-old traditions are practiced in an everyday, rather than a made-for-tourists way. Aside from these singular characteristics, the country matches its better-known neighbors in terms of protected savannah landscapes rich in wildlife, the focal point for tourism in Swaziland.

Zipline · Nature & Wildlife Tours · Universities & Schools
A vacation in the Drakensberg Region puts you in a World Heritage-listed mountainous wilderness, where painted rock art remains as the legacy of the San people, or Bushmen. The region's name comes from Dutch and means "mountains of dragons," because the tips of the mountains form the scales of legendary European monsters believed to reside there. Things to do in Drakensberg include hiking various trails through the cliffs, camping in ancient caves, and outdoor activities such as rappelling, rock climbing, and ice climbing in winter--just be sure you register with the mountain rescue service.
