If you are thinking about going to South Africa and aren’t entirely sure what you would like to do when
you get there…We some ideas that can help you get excited about visiting this marvelous country! So, hold on to your belt and let’s get to these travel ideas to help you make the most of your trip.

Travel Idea #1: South African Safari
When you go to South Africa, you must go on an African Safari. You can’t leave there without going to
one. Experience wildlife in their natural habitat. You cannot see them living their everyday life like this anyplace else. It will be worth the trip. Make sure you have your camera handy as you will get some great shots of these animals! Glamma Travels absolutely includes a safari as a part of our South Africa experience for our group trips.

Travel Idea #2: Interact with the Locals
What better way to get to know a country and culture than to get in touch with the locals! South Africa is a diverse country with 11 different unique languages, so there is so much diversity that there is no
culture shortage there! It’s a great way to learn something new, experience how other people live their
lives and be outside of your comfort zone for a little bit.

Travel Idea #3: Bungee Jumping and Rope Swings
If you love bungee jumping or looking to overcome your fear of heights, then South Africa is the place to do it! You can jump 288 feet at a soccer stadium in Durban which is the world’s tallest jump rope swing. You definitely can’t get an adrenaline rush like this one any place else! Glamma will NOT be participating in this experience with you but we are happy to make it your dream (or nightmare) come true.

Travel Idea #4: Go Swimming with the Sharks
Of course, sharks are the most feared animal underwater animal in the sea. However, they are interesting and beautiful animals. You can swim with them in a cage or if you are feeling a bit bolder, you can swim with them without a cage. However, you will only be allowed without a cage to see tiger and bull sharks which are safer to swim around than a great whites. Definitely an unforgettable adventure. Again, this is where our alone time comes in for our group trips as my parents forbid me to swim with sharks. Lol

Travel Idea #5: Hike Table Mountain
If you love to hike, then you must visit Table Mountain. It’s Cape Town’s most famous landmark. Table
Mountain is a national park that has over 350 hiking trails to the summit for you to choose from. You can take a cable car to the top of the mountain to enjoy the view – if the weather isn’t too permitting for a hike. Glamma Travels group trips will include a cable car ride as we aren’t all wanting to hike but we know that Table Mountain is something to experience.

These are just some ideas to help you inspire your trip to South Africa.

Of course, there are plenty more ideas for this beautiful country that we didn’t get to.

The world is your oyster, especially in South Africa which has plenty of options for you to choose from!
