Lonely Planet, the largest travel guide book publisher in the world, has named South Africa as one of the top countries to travel to in 2018 in it's annual "Best in Travel" publication. Lonely Planet describes the country, which was ranked number 10 on the list of the top 10 countries, as follows:
Beaches and mountains, wildlife and wine, and let’s not forget vibrant culture and cosmopolitan Cape TownSouth Africa has long been one of the world's most alluring countries. This year the country's many attractions will be bolstered by ‘Nelson Mandela Centenary 2018: Be the Legacy’, an official programme of events – some sporting, some educational, others devoted to the arts – aimed at honouring the legendary leader. The theme is to inspire values-based societies, with exhibitions related to transparency, service, respect, passion and integrity. So with more to see than ever, and favourable exchange rates offering great value, 2018 is a phenomenal year to visit South Africa. [src.]
