We all know that local is lekker and when it comes to travel, South Africa has a lot to offer. From safaris to beaches, there’s lots to choose from and these four local destinations might just be your next adventure!
Augrabies Falls, Northern Cape
Augrabies Falls is located in the Augrabies Falls National Park, Northern Cape. The Khoi people called the Augrabies Falls ‘Aukoerebis’, the place of the Great Noise – a reference to the thundering sounds the waterfall makes. The picturesque destination has some scenic walkways where you can enjoy a lovely hike.
Tswaing Meteorite Crater, Gauteng
The Tswaing Meteorite Crater is an ancient impact crater on the outskirts of Pretoria. Tswaing means “place of salt” in Setswana. The Tswaing Crater formed some 220,000 years ago when a giant meteorite slammed into the Earth, creating a half-mile-wide crater and destroying all vegetation within a 25-mile radius.
Tsitsikamma National Park, Eastern Cape
Tsitsikamma is a Khoi word meaning “place of abundant or sparkling water”. Often referred to as a hiking and water sports paradise, Tsitsikamma National Park forms part of the magnificent Garden Route National Park and boasts coastal scenery, reefs, rivers, lush forest and delicate Fynbos.
Macassar Beach Pavilion, Western Cape
Macassar Beach Pavilion is an abandoned Water Park in Cape Town hidden amid sand dunes and overlooking the sea on the False Bay coast. The once-popular beach resort was built in 1991 and closed due to financial difficulties.
