Things to do in South Africa
The Drakensburg Mountains
Drakensberg  mountains or  the dragon mountains,which stretch the entire length of KwaZulu-Natal’s western boundary, near about 600 miles is a magnificent natural destination for all the nature lovers around the world.Its one of the regions which shows the true African natural beauty, which helps to go back to the lap of mother nature.
 
A visit to South Africa would not be complete without a trip to what is widely regarded to be the most stunning scenery in the country.  The area has been a World Heritage site since 2000 and is home to a fantastic range of flora and fauna amongst the rugged peaks, pinnacles, waterfalls and rivers.  If anthropological interests are more your thing then rock art from the San people dating back 40,000 years can be found in over 600 sites.
 
     
Sun City, North West Province
Sun City is the resort in South Africa and many of those visiting Johannesburg will be off to one of its four distinct hotels which cater for a variety of tastes – and wallets. There are two golf courses, a huge water park as well as facilities for all the sports you can think of. From there visitors can go on safari in the malaria-free Pilanesberg National Park or perhaps get up really close to the wildlife with an elephant ride. 
 
Robben Island, Cape Town
Robben Island is situated seven kilometres off the coast of Cape Town and gained infamy during the apartheid regime as the prison where Nelson Mandela was held for 28 years.  Now in happier days, boats leave throughout the day to take tourists on a three and a half hour guided tour of the prison by former inmates.
     
The Winelands, Western Cape
South Africa has long been renowned for its wine, and the rich, fertile valleys east of Cape Town have become world famous for their vino, sherries and brandies.  The “capital” of the Winelands is Stellenbosch which should be on every visitor’s schedule as they tour the area.  There are 560 wineries in the Cape which is divided into four regions: The Little Karoo, Coastal, Olifants River and The Breede River Valley.
 
     
Gold Reef City, Johannesburg
Johannesburg came into existence after the Gold Reef was discovered which remains the richest gold deposit known to man. Gold Reef City is a theme park which celebrates these beginnings by offering visitors the chance to experience life in a gold mining “museum” town with opportunities to explore a mine, watch gold smelting demonstrations as well as enjoy the numerous themed rides.
 
     
Beaches
The perfect place to relax during your South African holiday. White soft sand beaches. Tidal pools. Crashing waves. Warm or cold seawater. Depending on whether you are on the west coast or the south coast, you will have a different beach experience. Water temperature can vary 10'c depending on which side you visit. This is due to the cold water current coming up the west coast from the Antarctic and the warm Mozambique current coming down the east coast. You will discover beaches that go on for miles, where only your footprints disturb the sand, or popular spots where it seems all of Cape Town are having fun. The Atlantic & Indian Oceans meet at Cape Agulhas, the Southern most tip of the Africa.
 
     
White Shark Diving

Bloukranz Bridge is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the highest bungee jump in the world at 216 meters.  (Note the size of the lorry crossing the bridge).   Even if it is not for you, it is well worth holding your breath and watching others.  On your selfdrive tour of South Africa you can stop off for as long as you want and watch these adrenalin seeking daredevils

Swimming with penguins
Swimming with penguins at Boulders Beach on the Cape Peninsula, near Cape Town, is a real thrill. A small public beach is set apart from the main penguin colony that resides here (on Foxy Beach), but that doesn't stop the penguins from sitting on your beach towel or darting around your legs while you take a refreshing dip in the Ocean. Penguins like to walk about and generally ignore fences. A boardwalk has been built around the dunes so you can get a great close up look at the entire colony eating, breeding, preening, swimming and chatting away.
 
     
Ride a Luxury Train
There are several excellent luxury train rides you can take in South Africa. The most famous is the Blue Train which has scheduled services between Cape Town and Pretoria. A one way journey takes 27 hours which you spend in 5 star splendor while enjoying spectacular scenery.
Rovos Rail operates a very luxurious railway line and offers trips within South Africa as well as up to the Victoria Falls. Vintage wood-paneled carriages are pulled by a variety of locomotives including steam. Passengers dine on 5 course dinners and enjoy a full-sized bath tub, while chugging through some of South Africa's beautiful landscapes.
 
     
Ride an Ostrich
Riding an ostrich takes a lot of skill but amateurs are welcome to try their luck in Oudtshoorn, in the Karoo. Ostrich farms abound in this semi-desert area of South Africa, there are hundreds of them. Oudtshoorn is the place to master riding this ungainly but strangely attractive, non-flying bird. If you're feeling very confident, there are regular races to be enjoyed as well but you should probably leave those to the professional ostrich jockeys.
 
     
Nightlife in South Africa
Nightlife revolves around restaurants, bars and cinemas, with good nightclubs a little scarce. There's a thriving theatre scene, and the quality of stand-up comedy is improving. Some cities have art house cinemas that screen less mainstream movies and run offbeat film festivals.
Cape Town is the place for jazz, with several live music venues and an annual international jazz festival. South Africa is firmly on the international pop and rock circuit, and the local music scene is also flourishing sufficiently for most cities to have a scattering of live music venues. Classical music and opera fans will probably only get their fix in larger cities.
