Top 10 places to Visit in South Africa
We rate going on a Safari trip as the number one thing to do in South Africa. In order to get in touch with the true African experience going on Safari is the thing you need to do. On a Kosher Safari tour you are able to experience the true joy of a safari tour as well as maintain the strictest kashrus standards in absolute luxury.
Getting to see the animals in the wild is a part of the experience but by far not the only thing. The first thing you will notice on a safari experience is the vastness and beauty of the landscape. Once out of the city you are immediately enveloped in the Great Africa. It is an event that must be experienced firsthand. We recommend Game Reserves that are relatively close to the cities (2-3 hours). Also when choosing a Game Reserve an important factor is malaria, so always keep that in mind.
Table Mountain is one of the most incredible sites in the world. This is a must see in Cape Town and one of the many sites you will see in your visit to Cape Town. The mountain is visited via Cable Car and has the scenic view of the sea and mountainous surrounding area.

The Lion Park
This is a must see for all visitors to South Africa, Here you will be able to get right up close and personal with lions.
