In the words of the great Destiny’s Child, we just don’t think you’re ready for this! You see, while the homeland is filled with hundreds of gasp-worthy, breathtaking sights, South Africa holds a special place in our hearts.
National Geographic doesn’t do this country’s beauty justice but this list of Instagrammable spots might help with that.
We’ve scavenged the country for some of the most feed-worthy spots so you can sprinkle your Black girl magic all over South Africa.
Let’s get into it:
Lion’s Head and Cape Point
If you love a bit of exercise and the outdoors, then hiking up Lion’s Head is the perfect adventure for you. With paragliders soaring high up in the sky and unbelievably beautiful sunset views, you’ll be delighted by the magical shots here. The two-hour hike is well worth it, trust us!
Just outside of Cape Town, Cape Point is a photographer’s dream. From rugged cliffs and commanding ocean views to an 1800s lighthouse to climb, there are great photo ops at every turn. It’s no wonder tourists flock here, so be sure to get there a bit after sunrise to take your photos in peace!
