Did you know that the true purpose for the creation of the Discovery Channel was so that the world could discover South Africa in the convenience of their home? It doesn't matter if you have seen "Last One Standing: South Africa" in 3D or if you've written an award winning book on the different species of vascular plant life in South Africa. If you haven't actually been to South Africa, then you know nothing about the country.
But you can change all of that by booking cheap tickets to South Africa with TravelPapa.

Just visit TravelPapa to find here special deals on cheap tickets and book cheap flight to South Africa.
Home to the second highest waterfall in the world and the third largest canyon in existence, South Africa gives you the opportunity not only to be surrounded by unique and exotic beauty, but it gives you the chance to actually notice this beauty.
The country is the largest producer of macadamia nuts and owner of the most luxurious train in the world (Rovos Rail), this country is an absolute hot spot for kids who want to meet the animals through safaris, students looking for a way to escape the nuances of the modern day life, and parents who need to recharge.
The natives seem to have a keen sense of humor, for they place signs similar to this one on hand dryers in the public bathrooms: "Risk of electric shock – Do not activate with wet hands." So dry your hands before using the automatic hand dryers! Or spot this sign at the local shop in Johannesburg: "Why go elsewhere to be cheated when you can come here?" Good point!

Top Cities of South Africa:
South Africa is a large country and it can seem overwhelming as to how you are going to navigate its grand landscape. By visiting the R62 wine route, which is the longest wine route in the world, you are sure to be ready to start your trip. Pack lightly for in interior and northern South Africa, the days are warm and end with afternoon showers, while the southern, eastern, and western regions are subtropical and warm with chilly winters.
South Africa's inland plateau is filled with a region referred to as the Great Escarpment, for its mountainous ranges. Due to the fact that South Africa is located at the southern tip of the African continent (hence the word SOUTH in South Africa), the interior of the country is flat with lengthy mountain ranges detaching the desert land from the coastline.
The culture is difficult to pinpoint considering the country consists of European, African, Indian, and Asian influence but the majority of the country is Christian. The country has 11 official languages but one of the main languages that are spoken rather often would be Bantu.
Johannesburg is the largest city and has attractions such as the Walter Sisulu Botanical Garden, which is filled with waterfalls and live music. If the kids are curious about experiencing the real South Africa, then the best place to go is Kruger Park, where they let you interact with the animals (zebras, giraffes, and gorillas).
Those looking for a way of learning about the country's history (without cracking open a book), Robben Island is a world heritage site that used to be used as a military base.
The thrill-seeking tourists can enjoy hiking up Table Mountain, which gives you a view of all of Cape Town (cable cars provided for those against exercise on vacation).
Don't get on the plane back home until you've visited the Cradle of Humankind, which not only contains prehistoric caves and majestic, grazing animals, but traditional South African towns with intricate shops that contain traditional merchandise (for the women to buy and the men to pay for).
The countries national dish is bobotie, which is simply Cape Malay curry with ground beef, almonds, sultanas, and topped with an egg custard (just eat it already, you can go back on your diet when you get home). If you're feeling rather brave (or if your drunk) then try mashonzha (mopane worms).
