    Attractions on the south Coast are amazing and looks like hidden treasure. I would love to go for Leopard Rock and UMTENTWINI as they have lots of natural surroundings. Also I am lover of arts and crafts, so go for those tiny African handcrafts street shops and also Hope shop for shopping bohemian items. Great tips on all attractions.

    Wow, I’ve just dribbled over that picture of the Pizza. Also, I’m marvelling at the fact that I have never had avocado on a Pizza before. Never! The funny thing is, I love Pizza and I love Avocado. Why did I never think of this!

    I had no idea that the South Coast had so much to offer! I would love to go scuba diving and whale watching, and to check out Scottburgh Beach. I don’t know if I have the stomach for shark diving, though!

    Ohhhhhh goodness! Shark Cage Diving is something I would love to experience one day, but I am sooooo chicken to do it! I think I could handle that it is coral sharks and not great whites! And the crocodile farm looks interesting! What amazing animals they are – it would be great to see the crocodile feeding.

    The pizza looks really tempting. Is that avocado as topping? I hope one can find good vegan food here. I am more of an adventure enthusiast so water rafting and zip lining excite me. I also love hiking so that appeals to me. The picture of the landscape which you shared make me want to pack my bags and be here right away.

    Wow 50! I haven’t count but I trust you! Really fun and interesting things to do in South Coast in South Africa! I have a two years ild daughter so she would surely love to visit one of these theme parks but I would love to sit on the rock at the Leopard rock! I wonder how many likes I would get posing on the rock!

    So many fun and varying activities to do in KZN! I think the idea of the Resonant Circle is pretty cool, and I’ve never done something like that before. I’m actually terrified of crocodiles and alligators, so I’m pretty sure I’d steer clear from the farms! I’m also not a huge shopper, but I could totally see myself getting lost in the world of curio down here!

    Wow 50 is quite a hefty list of attractions! South Africa is not much on my radar as far as travel destination is concerned. But you have changed my mind with great options you’ve listed here. The nursery is so interesting and the viewing deck is so cool!

    OMG! This looks as something out of this world! I would love to do a road-trip and go through every single one of the spots you mentioned in this article. It looks incredibly funny and adventurous. Well..hmm..I might skip the ones who are every extreme 😛 I don’t do extreme 🙂 But, otherwise….that pizza looks to die for 😛 Keep it up and safe travels in 2018!
