South Africa is a land of breathtaking diversity and beauty - naturally, it offers a stunning array of landscapes that are perfect for capturing unforgettable Instagram moments. Our local DMC partner Reynolds Travel Lufthansa City Center has curated them for you, ensuring that travellers can easily discover the most picturesque spots across the country.

  1. Victoria & Alfred Waterfront - A bustling harbor area in Cape Town, Victoria & Alfred Waterfront offers plenty of opportunities for Instagram-worthy shots of boats, buildings, and people.
  1. Boulders Beach - Boulder's Beach is THE place to go if you want a winning pic that will have you the envy of everyone back home. Located a short trip outside of Cape Town, this calm bay is home to a protected colony of native African penguins. When they aren't swimming freely in the sea they are waddling adorably on the beach, and the curious cuties will happily pose for your photos. Don’t be surprised to see them gracefully glide past as you cool off in the ocean! While friendly, remember they are still wild animals, so please do not feed or harass them. There is a small conservation fee to gain access to the beach, but this means it is rarely packed.
  1. Kruger National Park - South Africa's flagship wildlife reserve, Kruger National Park is a great place to capture photos of Africa's iconic animals such as lions, elephants, and giraffes. Hop aboard a game drive and snapshots of the infamous Big 5 and more as they make their humble abodes in the African bush.
  1. Bo-Kaap - Known for its colorful houses and cobblestone streets, Bo-Kaap is a vibrant neighborhood in Cape Town that provides a unique and Instagrammable backdrop. Known for a colourful display of beautifully painted houses, cobbled streets for walking, and delicious cuisine for eating, Bo-Kaap is always worth a visit. Let your creative juices flow among the pinks, greens, yellows and blues of this Cape Town heritage site before indulging your palate in traditional Cape Malay Cooking.
  1. Cape Point - Famed for paradise-worthy beaches, extensive displays of fauna and flora and beautiful hiking trails, Cape Point offers the lowly instagrammer a unique photo experience. Snap a shot of the exact place where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet and cross that off your travel to-do list. Don’t leave without taking a hike along one of the picturesque Cape Nature Reserve trails and snapping images of unique Cape Town vegetation. Not that into fitness? No problem! Pack some camping chairs and delicious eats and treat yourself to a picnic with a view!
  1. Orlando Towers - Once the cooling towers for the Orlando Power Station, these 33-storey twin towers are synonymous to Johannesburg's neighbourhood of Soweto and are a major tourist destination in South Africa. The towers are covered in brightly coloured murals, one depicting images from township culture, the other used for unique advertising campaigns. Since 2008 the towers have also been converted into a vertical adventure facility that offers bungee jumping, abseiling, zip-lining, and pendulum swinging, making for awesome photos as brave tourists chase adrenaline.
  1. Augrabies Falls National Park - The indigenous people called it "Aukoerebis", or place of Great Noise, as this powerful flow of water is unleashed from rocky surroundings characterised by the 18km abyss of the Orange River Gorge. Here, the Orange River Gorge makes magical music as the powerful yet calming water drops into a natural chasm. This is one of the most popular tourist destinations in South Africa's Northern Cape Province, the Augrabies Falls are a 145m waterfall and is a magnificent sight to behold. The Augrabies Falls waterfall and the adjoining ravine are considered one of the most spectacular sights in South Africa and is a highly instagrammable destination. 
  1. Table Mountain - Located in Cape Town, Table Mountain offers stunning views of the city and surrounding coastline, making it a highly Instagrammable spot. The Atlantic Seaboard is best experienced from atop of our beloved mountain. Known as “Hoerikwaggo” or “Mountain in the sea” to the Khoi, legend has it that this is where God dwells, and when you take in the breathtaking views from the top, it's no small wonder why it is so called. Bask in the greenery of the mountainside as you take a rotating cable car up this Cape Town titan and watch the clouds part like a curtain of white cotton candy to make way for an absolutely spine-tingling view of the Mother City.
  1. God's Window - Located in Mpumalanga, God's Window offers stunning views of the Drakensberg Mountains and the Lowveld below, making it a highly Instagrammable spot. Get out and soak up the spectacular panoramic Lowveld landscape from God's Window in the lush Blyde River Canyon. The largest vegetated canyon in the world, Blyde is third in size only to the Grand Canyon and the Fish River Canyon. Choose a clear day and you can see all the way to the Kruger National Park and Mozambique. Glance towards the east and you’ll see the Three Sisters, also known as the Three Rondawels. Just two kilometres north is Wonder View, the highest viewpoint in the region.
  1. Chapman's Peak Drive - Affectionately known as Chappies, Chapman's Peak Drive is up there with some of the world's most scenic driving routes. This coastal drive twists and turns along steep cliffs and beaches, offering great vantage points of South Africa's dramatic Atlantic coastline. While being a spectacular Insta location in its own right, Chappies is gateway to other picturesque spots like Hout Bay, the Cape of Good Hope, and the artistic country town of Noordhoek.
