Anyone who has booked holidays to South Africa may be interested in one native’s recommendations of the best places to visit in the country.

People who are heading for holidays to South Africa may be looking for inspiration when it comes to activities to try during their break.

If this is the case, then they may be interested in one famous South African cricketer who has offered some suggestions for the best tourist destinations in his home country.

Speaking to the Times, Clive Rice – the first man to captain the nation post-apartheid – described the Stellenbosch region just north of Cape Town as “stunning”.

The town, which is known for its wine production, is a quiet place to have a break once the university year has ended, he said.

Another essential spot to visit is Hout Bay in Cape Town, according to Mr Rice.

He explained that it is a haven for wildlife lovers as there are more than 250 species of birds along the stretch of coast, with cape fur seals and great white sharks in the waters just off the cliffs.

South Africa is attracting much attention as the host of the 2010 World Cup, which will kick off in Johannesburg on June 11th.
