With modern air and a sweet patina of another era, in the same parallel with Greece, but in the Southern hemisphere, South Africa has a climate that smells Mediterranean, with similar vegetation, sun and sea and the opposite seasons. But it has an unexpected vastness, even in cities, which is built around the turn parks. The nature of course is the main protagonist in any part of the country. You will see mountains, valleys, vineyards, wild animals in the savannah, raging sea, fishing lakes, rivers for rafting and everywhere but a horizon full of bold colors.
The Cape Town is one of the most beautiful and friendly places around the world, the perfect combination of mountain and sea. The imposing Table Mountain stands proudly in front of them and opened up the sea a valley that hosts the most fresh, cool and fashionable city of South Africa.
To the left lie the vineyards and the serpentine coastal road that passes beaches with turquoise waters, fine sand and cliffs and small villages lazily. In contrast to the bright and carefree Cape Town, the black Johannesburg, J-burg for the locals, is the heartbeat of South Africa.
The capital Pretoria is just one hour away if you drive there, but the economic and cultural center of the country is Johannesburg. The city from which began the struggle against apartheid is now among the greenest in the world. Particularly the neighborhood of Soweto bustling cheerfulness, warmth, notably an unexpected cosmopolitan probably has to do with the modern, western performance of African safari tradition.
It is the best period for road trips and walks to the wineries is their summer, from late October to mid May.
