If you want to get real adrenaline, dive with African sharks. From May to August the toothy predators await adventurers in Gansbaai bay, a 2.5-hour drive from Cape Town. Together with the other daredevils you will be put in a steel cage and released to drift into the ocean.

Flat Table Mountain looks exactly like a dining table for giants, covered with a white cloth out of the clouds. Most tourists rise to the top in the suspended cabin with a rotating floor, but you can also climb and walk the goat paths.

Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg significantly reproduces the atmosphere of the darkest period in the history of South Africa, a half-century of discrimination based on skin color. Feel how it is to be a second-class person already at the entrance, where tickets for whites and blacks are being randomly handed out.

Penguins live not only in the ice of Antarctica, but also, for example, on the edge of the hot Africa, on the Boulders Beach. 3,000 African Penguins quietly stroll along the shore a meter away from people. An attempt to scratch the tummy can cost a finger, so it’s best not to risk it.

Have a picnic on the lake at the Warwick winery, sip a glass of red wine at the foot of the mountains in the Vergelegen, or go down into the cellar family of Waterford.
