From vibrant, beautiful Cape Town to the flower-bedecked Namaqualand plains, from history-filled Johannesburg to the wildlife-dotted lands of Kruger National Park, this guide covers all the best-known sights of South Africa, and lesser-known ones as well. South Africa's rich cultural, historical, and contemporary highlights are featured prominently, such as treasure wrecks off its wave-thrashed shores, glorious seafood, and the "big five" animals that every safari-goer hopes to see. Experiential sidebars abound, such as how to consult a sangoma (a practitioner of traditional medicine) or help build houses in Namaqualand. The book guides visitors on interesting excursions including a drive through winelands, a "history walk to freedom" in Cape Town, and a walk in the Bush.

Active travelers trust National Geographic to deliver what they want in a guidebook: expert advice, insider tips, and the cultural feel of each destination not easily found online. These guides are pitch-perfect for today's experiential travel enthusiasts who want an authentic, enriching immersion.

About the Author

Samantha Reinders has a master's in visual communication from Ohio University. Being a photographer has allowed her to chase penguins, fly on Air Force One, swim with sharks, and meet interesting people—from businessmen to homeless men, and from grannies at a bake sale to a triple murderer behind bars. Reinders' work has appeared in U.S. News & World Report, Time, the New York Times, L'Express, Der Spiegel, Park Avenue, Chicago Tribune, and London's Financial Times. In 2005 she moved back to her native South Africa—and the dust roads that feed her soul.
