It’s a nation of big smiles. It’s one of many reasons why South Africa has a special place in my heart: the spectacular nature, melting pot of cultures, amazing food and wines, and yes, the big smiles! This video, produced by Caspar Diederik, shows us what it’s like to Meet South Africa, and experience its majestic landscapes, vibrant cities and the many smiles visitors encounter around this great country.
In 10 days we travelled from Johannesburg to Upington and Springbok in the west, down to the south western point of Capetown and then east to Durban. Crossing the country in a journey of clashing colours and beaming smiles.
Let us take you on a sunrise trip to the clouds in a hot-air balloon with sweeping views over the diverse Magaliesberg landscape. Discover Cape Town and the vibrant neighbourhood of Bo-Kaap. Experience the thriving contingent of local Instagrammers who guided us through the streets of Soweto and Durban to find the real beauty of the cities. Camp with us at Orange River near the Namibian border where the multi-coloured sky meets open fields and flowing rivers and live moments of natural beauty and calmness.
Meet South Africa with us and feel the energy that lights up and you’ll get why it’s one of our favourite travel destinations.
