Exploring South Africa
This April, why not take a trip to some of the most photogenic, memorable attractions that South Africa has to offer.
There are few things as majestic as Table Mountain, and there is no way you can make the trip to the Mother City without a snap of it. To help you take the perfect pic, Cape Town’s World Design Capital 2014 programme and designer Porky Hefer placed yellow frames in various locations around the city. Now you can capture that iconic shot of Table Mountain from the V&A Waterfront, Signal Hill, Eden on the Bay, Khayelitsha, Cape Town train station, District Six and the Silo District.
The entire Drakensberg escarpment is breathtaking, but if you get a chance to visit only one area, make it the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve. This canyon is one the second largest canyon in Africa. The photograph you want is of the ‘Three Rondavels’, huge rocks that look like round huts. Take the Panorama Route, which starts at the small town of Graskop, and stop at God’s Window to view the southern lowveld of the reserve.
There are a ton of striking shots you can take in the city of Joburg itself, but if you want something truly unique, head to the Cradle of Humankind. This World Heritage Site is about 90 minutes’ drive from the City of Gold and is home to around 40% of the world’s human ancestor fossils.
Kimberley may not be high on the bucket list, but the Big Hole definitely makes it worth the trip. This underground mine was just a hill 150 years ago, but when diamonds were discovered in Kimberley, prospectors all headed there and created one of the largest hand-dug excavations in the world. The hole is 463 metres wide and 240 metres deep.
