Condé Nast, a global mass media company and home to some of the world’s most iconic brands like Vogue, The New Yorker, GQ and Vanity Fair, recently released a list of 2021’s Best Holiday Destinations, and South Africa is listed!

Our gorgeous country has been included based on our exceptional wineries, luxury safaris, internationally rated hotels, contemporary museums, food markets and, of course, our breath-taking coast.

“Like many countries, South Africa’s tourism industry has been through the wringer of late. But while the world has taken a forced break, a new generation of genre-busting creatives have been busy shining a light on the most diverse cultural community on the African continent. Biennales, fairs and new artist-run spaces are at the helm of the country’s enlivened art scene, with exciting local artists – including twin sisters Noncedo and Nonzuzo Gxekwa – getting prime wall space at galleries such as the Maitland Institute and The Centre for the Less Good Idea,” Conde Nast said in its official list.

Other destinations mentioned include Malaysia, India, Oman, Spain and Morocco.

Executive Cape Town Mayor, Dan Plato, welcomed the listing as it presents positive signs for the future recovery of the tourism sector in South Africa.

He also mentioned the growing trend of working remotely and using Cape Town as a home base – highlighting Cape Town as a tech hub on the continent with an infrastructure that lends itself to this new approach in how business is done.  It’s the perfect base of operations, whilst allowing easy access to all the attractions and sites of the Mother City.
