I just watched the Best of Travel: South Africa DVD, and it is worth watching for anyone planning a trip to South Africa. It only touches on a few areas and activities, but they highlight some interesting stories in each place.
Visiting Cape Town, they spend a lot of time in the nearby township of Langa, which is an interesting look at real life in South Africa including the affects of apartheid and the local clicking language. They also visit the Cape Grace Hotel located at the V&A Waterfront, which has over 440 single malt scotches in stock. Wow!
On safari in South Africa, they go to a game reserve in the eastern Cape, which is perfect for people who are looking for a luxury destination with few people and is malaria free.
The third section covers the Garden Route, Winelands, and Whale Coast. The views of the whales right from shore in Hermanus are amazing! I also enjoyed the visit to the winery that paired white wines with cured meats — very unusual.
It is easy watching, well-produced, and can be viewed in pieces if you are short on time.
