• World Cup travelers can see much in South Africa

    2010-04-02

    Soccer fans throughout the world are gearing up for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa this summer. Some travelers may feel confined to the games while staying in the small country, but South Africa has much to offer travelers hoping to make their soccer trips into a memorable vacation.

    Located at the southernmost tip of the Dark continent, South Africa is a lively and diverse country celebrated for its wines and wares. It is the world's largest producer of gold, and as a result, has become an exceedingly wealthy country.

    For tourists seeking to get a sense of the African wilderness, there are a number of national parks that will provide travelers with a chance to see some of the region's majestic flora and fauna. Of these parks, Kruger National Park is perhaps the most popular, thought the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park provides the unique opportunity to explore the mysteries of the Kalahari dessert.

    Historical travelers would be remiss if they didn't visit the Cradle of Humankind, an UNESCO World Heritage site whose 200 caves and 13 explored fossil sites are believed to be the birthplace of humanity. On the other hand, urban explorers will enjoy their time spent in Cape Town, a majestic world-class city and the country's legislative capital.
