Slowly but surely, international travel is starting to pick up again. And while our destinations options might be limited, South Africa is eager to welcome the world again with open arms.

Condé Nast Traveler (CN) has listed South Africa as one of 21 top holiday destinations in the world, praising the buzzing arts scene, glorious food and exceptional safari opportunities the country has to offer.

The publication describes South Africa as the ‘most diverse cultural community on the African continent. Biennales, fairs and new artist-run spaces are at the helm of the country’s enlivened art scene, with exciting local artists.’

‘In Jozi, pan-African dinner clubs such as Yeoville, run by chef Sanza Sandile, rub up alongside lively rooftop bars and secret hole-in-the-wall spots in the bohemian suburb of Melville,’ CN continues.

‘That’s not to mention the parade of fresh hotels and lodges waiting to welcome international guests in 2021, which includes Kruger Shalati – a stupendously smart cabin hotel stationed on a historical railway line – as well as AndBeyond’s new supremely good-looking solar-powered Ngala Treehouse, rising above the predator-filled bush on the edges of Kruger National Park,’ it concluded.

Other holiday destinations from around the world listed include Indonesia, Costa Rica, Scotland and Finland.
