Don't miss our top five things to do in South Africa in June

Cross the boundary: Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park (South Africa Tourism)

1. Cross the boundary

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.

2. Take a city break

Durban, KwaZulu-Natal

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.

3. Dig for your fortune

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.

4. Try a traditional delicacy

Polokwane, Limpopo

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.

5. Take the plunge 

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.
