Don't miss our top five things to do in South Africa in June
Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park, Northern Cape
Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park spans the border between South Africa and Botswana, but game moves freely. Between March and June you’ll find lush vegetation, and avoid the fierce summer sun.
On the coast the weather is turning, so seek shelter in cosmopolitan Durban. Take refuge in museums, vibrant bars and the array of fantastic Indian and Pakistani restaurants.
Kimberley, Northern Cape
Retrace the steps of the thousands who flocked to find their fortune in the diamond rush. Kimberley’s Old Town dates back to the days of the diamond entrepreneurs, and showcases the spoils of the perilous trade.
From vhuswa pancakes to mukusule wild spinach, traditional VhaVenda food is both fresh and hearty. If you’re feeling adventurous, give mopane worms a try.
Sodwana Bay, KwaZulu-Natal
Thanks to the Mozambique Current, Sodwana Bay’s waters are temperate year round, and the coral bustles with a vibrant array of tropical marine life.
