City Stopovers For The Businessman And Woman

A visit to Gold Reef City on the outskirts of Johannesburg and close to sprawling Soweto with its Apartheid Museum, provides visitors with an insight into the tumultuous events of the 'gold rush' and the struggles for survival. The "City" also includes many fine museums, art galleries, exclusive shopping centres and craft markets.  

Pretoria, where it is said a more sedate lifestyle exists, you may immerse yourself in the history of the early Afrikaner pioneers who made the arduous journey from the Cape through a hazardous interior - visit the imposing Voortrekker Monument a dedication to their survival.    

While many overseas visitors fly into Johannesburg's international airport (OR Tambo), another jet-setting entry into South Africa is beautiful Cape Town with Table Mountain as its unforgettable and majestic backdrop. At the tip of the Cape and nestling between the mighty Indian and Atlantic Oceans, the "mother city" is the playground of the overseas holidaymaker, enjoying a Mediterranean climate (meaning it rains primarily in Winter, unless there's a cricket test match on). A sun-worshipper's paradise, there's no end to the invitation to enjoy its white, sandy beaches.  Inland, the craggy Hottentot-Hollands peaks mount guard over lush valleys and famous vineyards established by the early Huguenots who fled religious persecution in Europe.     

From Cape Town, along the breathtaking Garden Route, and a mere two hours from Plettenberg Bay, is the Eastern Cape's capital city of Port Elizabeth, also renowned as the watersport capital of the country - and some excellent and unique game viewing opportunities. 

And then, let us not forget the 'last outpost of the British Empire', the city named after Sir Benjamin D'Urban. A major seaport, Durban has long been the favoured destination of local South Africans intent on heading for sunwashed beaches or hoping for a rare view of the great 'sardine run'. - one of Africa's major natural migrations. Scoured by the warm Mozambique current, Durban and environs are well-known for surfing and a convenient launching point for visits to the famous Natal Drakensberg Mountain range.
