Reader’s corner: Make the Most of your Time in South Africa


Words: MapStudio

South Africa is renowned as a beautiful land rich in diversity and culture, and when you see its exquisite beaches, stunning countryside and rugged mountain backdrop, you understand why.


MapStudio’s new release Make the Most of your Time in South Africa is a guide to planning your personalised itinerary so that you can experience it all; from the unspoilt beaches along the Wild Coast to the beautiful visage of Table Mountain; from sightings of wild game in the Kruger National Park to the green forests of Tsitsikamma. One moment you might be cage diving with great white sharks, the next you’re riding an ostrich in the Little Karoo or sipping wine in the Cape Winelands.

The book covers 17 of the most popular tourist routes in South Africa. Each route features the must-see attractions, as well as other worthwhile places to visit and things to see. The recommended amount of time to spend at each attraction is listed with each heading. We list both the ‘least’ amount of time you may need, as well as the time you should ideally allocate to get the ‘most’ out of your visit.

An overview of all the attractions is found at the beginning of each chapter and an alphabetical list of all the attractions can be found in the Quickfinder.

Whether you are a local or an international tourist, exploring South Africa with Make the Most of your Time in South Africa is a great way to make South Africa your ‘rainbow destination’.

“I believe that South Africa is the most beautiful place on earth. Admittedly, I am biased but when you combine the natural beauty of sunny South Africa with the friendliness and cultural diversity of our people, and the fact that the region is a haven for Africa’s most splendid wildlife, then I think that we have been blessed with a truly wonderful land.”
