How to See More of South Africa in 2023

by | Mar 13, 2023 | Secunda

South Africa is home to an array of jaw-dropping landscapes, bustling cities, scenic mountains and pristine beaches, all of which make our country an ideal holiday destination. Yet, so many of S.A’s citizens look to where the grass is greener and seas are bluer when it comes to booking a trip for their annual leave.

But paradise is truly right on our front ´stoep. ´ Weather you’ve always dreamt Kruger National Park or simply staying overnight at a B&B in Secunda, this article will encourage you and give you a few ideas of how you can get to see more of South Africa this year.

Start Small

Instead of waiting for the school holidays when it’s peak tourist season, take advantage of the off-season and getaway to somewhere local on the weekends. Often the places we have yet to explore are right under our noses. A weekend trip is extremely doable and doesn’t require as much planning and preparation as one would think. There are also ways to keep it affordable by staying in budget-friendly accommodation, packing your own food staples and choosing to only eat out for one special meal.

Get Inspired

Part of the problem with why we aren’t seeing much of our country could be due to the fact that we are actually ignorant to the hidden beauties that our country holds. Whether you´re active on social media or keep it old school with magazines, there is tons of travel inspiration out there. Why not follow some local South African-based travel influencers on Instagram or grab the latest ´Getaway´ magazine to get you inspired for your next local adventure?

Attend Events That Take Place Around the Country

No matter in which area your interests lie, travelling with a purpose is always a good idea to motivate you to explore the country as well as do something you love. If you are a keen sports enthusiast, search for upcoming events around the country that you could sign up for or watch. South Africa hosts a number of scenic running marathons, trail runs, rugby tournaments and world-class surf competitions.  If sports aren’t your thing, why not travel to a new province for a music festival or tantalize your taste buds at any of the gastronomic events or vineyards?

As South Africans, we are truly spoilt for choice when it comes to things to see, do and experience in our very own country, we just have to get out there. The next time you are travelling through Mpumalanga and are in need of an affordable yet comfortable B&B in Secunda, the staff at Kaste Guesthouse will welcome you with open arms.
