A look at the few unesco world heritage sites in south africa

  1. 1. Summary South Africa boasts enough attractions and lures to tempt people from all corners of the globe to buy flight tickets and fly in here. Adding to the list are the various UNESCO World Heritage Sites that are truly spectacular and surely deserve a visit by one and all.
  2. 2. A Look at the Few UNESCO World Heritage Sites in South Africa South Africa is a delightful holiday destination that’s roaring with a flood of tourist attractions that are anything but ordinary. South African landscape is brimming with a fantastic diversity that can only be felt by paying a visit to the nation. Of course, the nation is well awarded for its natural and cultural treasures. UNESCO lists multiple World Heritage Sites in South Africa, and these are truly the inspirations, if people need any, to book air tickets on flights and landing in SA. Take a look at few of them. Mapungubwe Landscape People who decide to pay a visit to the Mapungubwe will surely be left bewildered at the offerings of the place! The Mapungubwe Kingdom dates back to the Iron Age, and is perhaps the most ideal gift for culture and ancient history freaks on their way to South Africa. Artefacts found at the Mapungubwe Hill, which are items like gold ornaments and glass beads, are considered to be from 1000 AD to 1300 AD! Mapungubwe National Park is surely a place to discover archaeological treasures and also some wildlife ones after procuring air tickets to SA.
  3. 3. Richtersveld Cultural and Botanical Landscape Veteran holiday makers who consider holidays to South Africa a true revelation have actually made a visit to the Richtersveld. Located below the border of Namibia, the Richtersveld is a rugged, desert landscape that is surprisingly home to a large variety of animal, bird and plant life that have apparently adopted to the tricky conditions. No need to add here that they are endemic to the region, specially considering the fact that Richtersveld is billed as the only arid biodiversity hotspot on the planet. The area is populated with the Nama people and the local community. Interestingly, they are the ones who are responsible for the upkeep of the Richtersveld National Park.
  4. 4. Robben Island, Cape Town Tourists who sketch out South Africa holidays more often than not put most emphasis on the Cape Town stint of it. This is not surprising considering it is such a beautiful city, with millions booking tickets to land here, every year. Robben Island is one of the city’s most alluring attractions and is also a UNESCO certified World Heritage Site in South Africa. The Robben Island was the place where the colonial masters put political prisoners, and most significantly Nelson Mandela, to carry out their prison sentences. It is almost a necessity to check out this incredible holiday attraction once people have gone through the trouble of securing flight tickets to the Mother City. Cape Floral Region Protected Areas and iSimangaliso Wetland Park are couple of other World Heritage Sites in South Africa that are well travelled to by people who to squeeze out the maximum from their investment on air tickets and overall holiday packages.
