Event Packages List
Bloemfontein is the capital city of the province of Free State of South Africa; and, as the judicial capital of the nation, one of South Africa's three national capitals. Known as the “City of Roses,” Bloemfontein blooms with vibrant sports and cultural scenes. Peruse markets, museums and monuments, enjoy authentic local food and sip craft beers. Between the city and the sprawling suburban neighbourhoods that mark the centre of South Africa, Bloemfontein is a feast for visitors who enjoy exploring lesser-known (but no less impressive) sites and attractions.
From the busy waterfront to the mountains, forests, beaches and vineyards, Cape Town’s bounty of things to see and do can be overwhelming, even for the most seasoned travellers. Start with a visit to the V&A Waterfront, the most visited tourist attraction in South Africa featuring world-class shopping, excellent dining and entertaining nightlife. Take a stroll along the Sea Point Promenade to the Green Point Urban Park, which showcases some spectacular public artworks. Alternatively, tackle one of Cape Town’s many hiking trails - Newlands Forest offers a leisurely wander while Lion’s Head poses more of a challenge. As far as mountains go, no trip to Cape Town would be complete without riding the cable car to the top of Table Mountain to soak up the views from one of the New 7th Wonders of the World. Depending on your timeframe, explore the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, go pub-hopping down Long Street or go wine tasting in the Winelands (or, closer to the city, the Constantia Wine Route).
South Africa’s “City of Gold” buzzes with energy day and night. From its sprawling surrounding suburbs to the heart of the central business district, Johannesburg is a cutting-edge urban destination marked by gritty street art, awe-inspiring modern architecture and several historic places of interest. Fast gaining a reputation for being a food-lover’s paradise, expect plenty of pavement eateries in the leafy neighbourhoods of Parkhurst, Greenside and Melville. Not short on nightlife and shopping either, Johannesburg is a mecca for visitors who want to tap into the fast-paced vibe of Africa’s economic powerhouse.
