Top 10 Attractions: South Africa

May 20, 2015

Studying abroad means exploring new places — LOTS of new places! ISEP Program Officer Lindsay joins us as a guest blogger to tell us all about what South Africa has to offer. Lindsay lived in South Africa and has great insider tips for your study abroad.

South Africa is my absolute favorite country that I’ve had the opportunity to visit! -Lindsay

I studied at the University of Cape Town, and eventually moved back to work for an amazing pottery company called Wonki Ware in George, Western Cape! I miss South Africa every single day and am so happy to have found a job in the U.S. where I can help students have the same opportunity that I was able to have!

But enough about me! Here are my TOP 10 Attractions in South Africa! I could honestly write up a “Top 10” for most cities in South Africa, so feel free to contact me if you would like more information!
