In South Africa, life happens outdoors. Drive across country, past vineyards and farmlands, stopping at padstals (farm stalls) for fresh fruits and biltong (dried meat). Climb Table Mountain, surf in the Indian Ocean in Durban, and enjoy an outdoor concert in Cape Town. On safari, you'll see animals year-round, but it's particularly easy to spot them in winter, from June through September. When you do go inside, you'll have your pick of some of the top restaurants and hotels on the continent.
