Things to do in South Africa

Discover South Africa with flights to Johannesburg and Durban.

Visit Johannesburg

  • Understand 20th-century events in South Africa at the Apartheid Museum. Explore artifacts, film and culture as well as the key people and events that played a role in apartheid.
  • Tour Constitution Hill, a vital site that is spread across a former prison and fort. Learn about the struggles of the many important activists that were imprisoned here, including Nelson and Winnie Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi.
  • Spend a day at Johannesburg Zoo, home to more than 300 different species including zebras, leopards, chimpanzees and rhinoceros. In the summer, you can watch staff feed crocodiles in the outdoor enclosure. 

Visit Durban

  • Explore the Durban Botanical Gardens, which date back to 1849. Walk through the Japanese garden, see a beehive up-close-and-personal and stop to smell the fragrant herb garden.
  • Watch a soccer game at the Moses Mabhida Stadium. On off days, ride the Big Rush Big Swing, the tallest swing in the world. Free fall for 250 feet then swing out for 720 feet. For more thrills, take the Adventure Walk and climb to the top of the 525-foot stadium and look over Durban.
  • Get up-close-and-personal with a shark by taking a cage dive in the Aliwal Shoal. See blacktip, spinner and tiger sharks safely from behind metal bars. For more experienced divers, companies also offer cageless shark dive trips.
