South Africa was recently given the prestigious title of the World’s top travel destination for 2015 at the New York Times Travel Show.
Termed “A world in one country”, you literally can see everything the world has to offer: African desert wildlife, ocean wildlife (including, yikes, some of the biggest Great Whites in the world), mountains, deserts, grassland, gushing rivers, amazing wine, friendly culture. Awesome!
Check out some of the sites it has to offer and you’ll surely agree.

Folks, I haven’t even grazed the surface of what’s to be seen and done in South Africa. It’s a diverse coastal paradise where you can see the continent truly at its best, without the risk of dying of exposure as you move inland to the more desolate areas of the country.
This place is definitely on my current travel agenda. How about you?
