Urban indulgences in South Africa
South Africa's cities are an exciting mix of first and third world influences, offering a veritable kaleidoscope of sights and sounds for those on South African holidays. From happening Cape Town - one of the most beautiful cities in the world - to busy, bustling Johannesburg on the highveld, each has its own unique attractions and cultural influences.
Our nightlife benefits from both the vibrancy of Africa and the sophistication of our first world facilities. You can choose from fascinating theatre and music performances, wild and wacky clubs, glittering casinos and an enormous range of restaurants.
Shopping is also quite a popular indulgence in South Africa and visitors can get a vast array of crafts at good prices. There are a number of state-of-the-art shopping centres to be found in most major cities.
Shopping malls are actually shopping and entertainment centres, as all of them usually have several restaurants, and at least one cinema. Many also have ice-rinks, roller blading rinks, video-arcades and mini-golf, whilst others offer activities such as wall climbing and artificial-wave surfing.
When it comes to restaurants, the culinary traveler on South African holiday is able to indulge in a multitude of flavours. Local cuisine utilises the natural bounty of the land and ocean in a heady mix of European, Asian and African ingredients and styles. Whether you prefer fresh seafood at the West Coast or piping hot curry in Durban, the choices are endless.
