Why I love South Africa: Heritage sites Day 6


According to the Colins English dictionary a heritage site is a:

noun. a historical site, a building, or an area of the unspoilt natural environment, considered to be important to a country or area’s heritage. a world heritage site a site of international importance.

South Africa has many heritage sites. If you Google “South African Heritage Sites” the list is almost endless.

I am going to list some that I am familiar with and that I consider a must see:

  1. Union Buildings
  2. Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria
  3. Melrose House, Pretoria
  4. Church square, Pretoria
  5. Kromdraai Fossil site (Krugersdorp)
  6. Robben Island
  7. Sterkfontein Caves
  8. Table Mountain
  9. National Botanical Gardens
  10. National Zoo
  11. The Castle in Cape Town

And so the list can go on an on.

    Hi Amanda!
    I’m doing the 31 Days Challenge as well and stumbled upon your blog on the Facebook group. I have always been interested in South Africa so I’m so glad your blog popped up on my radar! In fact, I’m working on a story about South Africa for my senior journalism class so all of your info is super helpful. Thanks for sharing – looking forward to reading more of your posts!
