A leading travel magazine has picked out the best things to do in South Africa this month.
Brits catching flights to South Africa this month may be glad to learn that a major travel magazine has issued its top tips for making the most of the Rainbow Nation in May.
Wanderlust magazine recommends that visitors explore the Knysna Forests, in the Western Cape region to discover wild elephants and rare vervet monkeys as well as 600-year-old yellowwood trees.
If you’re looking for more sedentary pursuits, then the Calitzdorp Port Festival may be a better choice, with cellar tours and fortified wine tasting sessions taking place on the first weekend of the month.
Those looking to get in some fly fishing are advised to check out the secluded riverside spots and mountain streams in the Eastern Cape town of Rhodes, where rainbow and brown trout can be found.
Alternatively, take a trip back to the 1800s with a tour of Port Elizabeth’s well-preserved historic centre, including a climb to the top of Fort Frederick.
Brits looking to book flights to Port Elizabeth from London can choose from airlines such as Virgin Atlantic, Iberia and bmi.
