South Africa’s heritage sites make some of the best tour locations due to their rich history and interesting features. We are proud to have transported many people on tours to and from many locations in South Africa. However, keeping in theme with Heritage month, we’ll show you some of the best places to go.
Dating back approximately a whopping 2 023 million years, this heritage site is one of the oldest meteorite impact structures in the world. The Vredefort Dome is evidence of the world’s greatest impact structure visible on Earth. Visitors can stroll around parts of the Dome that are open to the public.
iSimangaliso Wetland Park
The iSimangaliso Wetland Park is a goldmine of activities and experience to fit every taste. You can go on game drives, guided walks, bird watching, visit beaches, whale watching and… and… need we continue? The wetland park is home to a host of hippos and crocodiles, 100 species of coral, 25 000 year old coastal dunes, 3 major lake systems… really you should visit this gorgeous site yourself, time won’t be enough to experience all of the wonders.
Richtersveld Cultural and Botanical Landscape
The harsh but gorgeous landscape of the Richtersveld Cultural and Botanical Landscape sustains the Nama people (descendants of the Khoisan people) who still embrace the 2000-year-old transhumance livelihood. This unique cultural landscape is situated in the Namaqua National Park and well worth a visit if you love unspoilt wilderness.
You don’t need to be in an Indiana Jones movie to enjoy your own adventure. Just explore the Sterkfontein caves! Children on school tours will love exploring the caves and the scientific exhibition centre in particular, which showcases cave formations and geologies, early-life forms, mammals and homo-fossils, to name a few.
You cannot celebrate South Africa’s heritage without remembering Nelson Mandela and subsequently Robben Island. Once you’ve reached the island, you will be taken on a tour of the prison by ex-prisoners giving you a unique and personal insight into a location that plays a big role in South Africa’s history.
