Embedded in every South African corner is the history of many years, KwaZulu-Natal is no exception to this. The coastal province is situaed in the southeast of the country, along a shoreline beside the Indian Ocean and shares borders with three other provinces.

You can visit the site by self-drive or a metered taxi and entrance to the site is free. 
When in the area, make sure to visit the on-site exhibition to learn more about the role Nelson Mandela played in South Africa's liberation. Thanks for the image @shannon_junior15!

Located in the Eastern Cape is the amazing Hogsback. Named after the three distinct ridges of the Amathole range of mountains that resemble the back-outlines of running wild pigs, the little town of Hogsback has become an arts and crafts hub, a photographer’s preferred location, a nature lover’s breakaway and couple’s top choice of romantic hideaway. It is definetly a top pick for anyone visiting the Eastern Cape. 
It's best to drive yourself to Hogsback. Once you're in the village, most of the attractions are within walking distance of your accommodation. 
Accommodation will cost you anything from about R400 per person (self-catering) to R800 per person for bed and breakfast, though rates vary seasonally. 
Things to do in the area aside from hiking is explore craft displays and the word has it that shops in Hogsback are legendary. 
This is your chance to #MeetSouthAfrica in the most spectacular way. Great image, @jaimykester!

If you're looking for a break away from the usual fast-paced city life and enjoy panoramic views and an abundance of wildlife, look no further than Mpumalanga, a province not too far from Gauteng. 
Although it is not a coastal province, there are many water activities, from river rafting to flyfishing, available for any keen water adventurer. For adventures on dry land, you are welcome to take a hike as this province hosts many scenic places to explore. You can drive to Mpumalanga from Gauteng, however if you prefer to fly, there are daily flights from Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town to the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA) near Mbombela (Nelspruit). True to the South African summers, this province is filled with sunlight and we suggest packing a hat, some sunscreen and keeping hydrated as often as possible. Temperatures may vary. In addition, remember to pack the insect repellant and malaria medication if travelling to a malaria zone in the province. This is an amazing picture, @senz_m!

The beautiful North West is home to the Madikwe Game Reserve, which boasts amazing lodges in one of South Africa’s foremost Big Five malaria-free reserves. In creating this amazing getaway, they found that the conservation would create more income and jobs for the local community than the existing land-use at the time, which was cattle-farming. This successful reserve is now a model that has inspired South African conservation and is open and ready for local and global visitors. 
Suitable for a honeymoon, a girls weekend away or even just a break from the busy city life, we suggest a visit to this game reserve close to one of neighbouring countries, Botswana. 
It is also the perfect stop for anyone heading into Botswana. If time permits, we suggest a stay for at least two nights, or three or more if you can as there is much to see and experience. 
Furthermore, when in the area, you are spoiled for choice as you have a selection of 20 game lodges - all of them offering luxury and comfort. Most of the lodges are five-star, so expect to pay accordingly.
