Overview

Active travelers trust National Geographic to deliver what they want in a guidebook: expert advice, insider tips, and the cultural feel of each destination not easily found online. These guides are pitch-perfect for today's experiential travel enthusiasts who want an authentic, enriching immersion.

From vibrant, beautiful Cape Town to the flower-bedecked Namaqualand plains, from history-filled Johannesburg to the wildlife-dotted lands of Kruger National Park, this guide covers all the best-known sights, and lesser-known ones as well. South Africa's rich cultural, historical, and contemporary highlights are featured prominently, such as treasure wrecks off its wave-thrashed shores, glorious seafood, and the "big five" animals that every safari-goer hopes to see. Experiential sidebars abound, such as how to consult a Sangoma or help build houses in Namaqualand. The book guides visitors on interesting excursions including a drive through winelands, a "history walk to freedom" in Cape Town, and a walk in the Bush.
