It doesn't always have the best reputation, but Johannesburg has fascinating, vibrant places to explore like Soweto, Alexandra, Rosebank Flea Market and its wonderful museums.
Milwane National Park is Swaziland's oldest protected area covering over 4,560 hectares. The park is situated in Swaziland’s “Valley of Heaven” - the Ezulwini Valley - and has an abundance of wildlife.
A vast expanse of bushveld and its ancient hardwood trees make Hlane Royal National Park home to the largest wild herds in Swaziland.
Created to control diminishing animal numbers due to hunting, Kruger National Park became official in 1926 and is now deservedly one of Africa's premier safari parks.
With its attractive tree-lined avenues, Maputo has a unique European feel and some great local restaurants.
Inhambane is one of the oldest settlements on the East Coast of Mozambique. The sleepy historic town is known for its colonial architecture and is a stepping stone to the beach resorts around Tofo.
