Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus are just two of the big names who have played in the stunning golf courses of South Africa - many of which have also been designed by legends, like Ernie Els.
The southern edge of Africa is a microcosm of natural and human history. It's where wilderness, ancient relics, and modern industry collide, transforming the coast into something new every single day. It's also a hot spot for thrill-seekers in search of the world's longest surf ride and highest bungee jump. From the scenic N2 highway to the mysterious spiral shapes of the Karoo to the raging waters full of sharks and sunken ships, this is a soaring look at Africa's Wild South Coast.
