10. African penguin
In addition to the white lion, a penguin breed is native to South Africa and is expected to be extinct in 15 years. Due to the relatively short distance from South Africa to Antarctica, these birds have emigrated and enjoyed the adaptation to the living conditions on the beach, as we can see in this photo. These birds fish for anchovies and are known to eat squid and small crustaceans. These penguins are often the target of malicious predators from the various South African oceans. They are often eaten by orcas, sharks and large seals. You will then have to deal with predators on land such as mongooses, genets and caracals. Some scientists believe that they have had difficulty finding nutritious food sources because their main food source for anchovy has been extensively fished. Hopefully we will be able to keep these unique creatures alive.
9. The Palace of the Lost City
If you think Las Vegas resorts are good, consider the Palace of the Lost City. It is a remarkable feat of architecture and features specially crafted botanical jungles. With lavish pools, lakes, and hotel rooms, it would be an excellent place for a vacation in northwest Pretoria. Safaris are rightly on the list for most people who stay here.
8. South African Bungee Jumping
With the unique landscapes of South Africa, this is a mecca for bungee jumping fans. It is home to the world’s highest bungi jump at 710 feet. The Bloukrans Bridge is near Port Elizabeth and is probably a place you don’t want to go if you’re scared of heights. In this photo you can really see how high the bridge is and this experience will most likely not be forgotten so quickly.
There have been over 2000 shipwrecks on the South African coast in the past 500 years. The Cape of Good Hope takes its name from the dangerous waters that sailors and explorers would try to get around. People would hope that people could get past this section of the water without any problems. As we can see in this photo, it is a beautiful piece of land, but getting around is risky.
6. Rovos Rail
Considered the most luxurious trains to discover in Africa. Travelers can take a step back in time and travel like a royal safari enthusiast. They love adventurous landscapes, luxury, butlers, all the gourmet dishes prepared on the train and only the best wines grown in South Africa.
5. Meteor strike
South Africa has the oldest known crater and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Vredefort Dome is believed to be 4 billion years old and approximately 15 to 20 kilometers in diameter. Here in the photo you can see the size of this scar from the past.
4. South African
Although South Africa is a beautiful country, the recent trend to attack agricultural workers has unfortunately hit the country. Between 1994 and 2012, an astonishing 361,015 murders occurred. Farm owners seem to think this is racially motivated, although the government believes the main motive is robbery. Many farmers have armed themselves heavily to protect themselves from becoming statistics. Some have gathered on the streets hoping to spread the word.
3. Nobel Peace Prize laureates
South Africa has many progressive and influential personalities. But this unique country had two Nobel Peace Prize winners on the same street! Can you guess who they are Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu both had properties on Vilakazi Street in Soweto. Here we see a photo of Nelson Mandela’s house, which is now a museum.
South Africa hosts some of the wildest and most colorful festivals. For example, the South African Africa Burn Festival was held in Karoo in the middle of the desert, as we can see in this photo. It is similar to the Burning Man Festival in northern Nevada, but has an African twist. 7 days of this event can be too much if you can survive. You can do just about anything.
Tape Mountain is the oldest surviving mountain in the world and has a richer biodiversity than some countries! With the 2285 plant species on this mountain, it has more than the entire country of the United Kingdom.
