I recently wrote a blog post for TravelNoire on all the delicious things to eat and drink in South Africa. I planned to only share that blog post here. But, I realized I have so many other blog posts on South Africa. I have combined them into this South Africa Travel Guide for First Time Visitors. For travelers visiting South Africa for the first time, this round up of 9 blog posts will be very helpful

first time, this round up of 9 blog posts will be very helpful.

Planning a trip to South Africa: In this blog post I give you basic but detailed information to help you start planning a trip to South Africa. Important things to consider are when and where to visit. You should also consider the places you would like to visit in South Africa such as the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg or Robben Island in Cape Town. Additional topics include the weather, costs, accommodations and vaccines.

A Safari Day Trip from Johannesburg: One of the most popular things to do when visiting South Africa is to go on safari. In this post I describe our safari day trip to Pilanesberg National Park from Johannesburg. I also include tips on what to pack and wear on safari.

Reflections on my first visit to South AfricaRace & Diversity: Before visiting any city or country I think it is important to learn about its history, culture and customs. South Africa is a diverse country with Black Africans, Afrikaners-descendants of Dutch and English colonizers, Indians and multiracial people referred to as “coloured”. In America the term “coloured” is considered derogatory but this is not the case in South Africa.

The Foodie’s Guide to Eating & Drinking in South Africa: You may be wondering what to expect when eating and drinking in South Africa. In this detailed blog post on South African foods & drinks, I review traditional and popular items. I also let you in on some of my favorite, must try South African eats. Bobotie anyone? Maybe with a glass of Pinotage wine?

3 Days in Cape Town: Things to See & Do: I wrote this blog post after my first trip to Cape Town. I packed in a lot because there were so many things I wanted to see. Robben Island, Table Mountain, the V&A Waterfront & much more. Getting to some of these South African attractions takes planning and are weather dependent. This blog post gives you advice on how to plan ahead and make the best out of 3 days in Cape Town.

For Next Time:

I could easily spend a month or a year or more in South Africa. On my next trip to South Africa I hope to visit Kruger National Park and Victoria Falls. Victoria Falls is located in Southern Africa on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. It is a popular “add-on” on South Africa itineraries.

I hope you have enjoyed my South Africa Travel Guide for First Time Visitors. I am sure it will help you plan and enjoy an epic vacation to South Africa.
