Naturally beautiful spots in South Africa

In honour of World Environment Day we take a look at some of the most beautiful nature spots in South Africa.
 
Coffee Bay 

Hidden coves, rolling green hills and awe inspiring vistas are just some of what makes this Wild Coast gem between East London and Port Edward worth a trip! 


 

Magoebaskloof

 
The misty mountains situated on Eastern tip of the Drakensberg is a veritable oasis of fauna and flora that will take your breath away every visit.


Adventure awaits! Love this shot by @campsbaygirl via @thelawry #ShotLeft

Valley of Desolation, Camdeboo National Park

A series of vertical cliffs and dolerite columns stand like huge, isolated hobgoblins of nature 120 metres above the valley floor. These breathtaking cliffs that took 100 million years to form stand sentry over the Valley of Desolation in the Karoo, a force of beauty and nature.


The Richtersveld

On the border with Namibia is an extraordinary desert landscape of the highest diversity of succulents in the world. The rugged mountains of volcanic rock, flat, sandy plains and half-human trees the Nama people include in their legends are characteristic of a harsh world where water is scarce and only the toughest life survives.



Sodwana Bay’s Seven Mile reef

Seven Mile Reef – one of the most beautiful dive sites in the world, and comparable with Red Sea dives, is alive with tropical reef fish, Moray eels, pelagic fish, turtles, whales and crystal clear water; just 11 km offshore of the launch site.



The red sand dunes of the Kgalagadi


The rolling sand dunes bake in 40-degree heat, their high iron oxide content the reason for their colour. Lying on the southwestern tip of the Kalahari, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is one of the last undeveloped places on the planet.

The kloofs of the Magaliesberg

These incredible mountains that are older than the Himalayas, reveal kloofs with names like Tonquani, Chosspile, Trident and Mhlabatini, gouged by the water of mountain streams over years, some more than 100 metres deep.


Limpopo’s Lake Fundudzi

Held sacred by the Vhatatsindi, the People of the Pool, beautiful Lake Fundudzi’s fresh waters are not often visited, for myth holds that it is protected by a white crocodile and a great white python lives here.
