When I speak to fellow tour operators they often chuckle at me when I suggest that Cape Town is a perfect single destination holiday! Typically when travelling over to South Africa, multi-centre and multi-activity tours are the norm.
As someone who travels to Southern Africa several times a year, technically I have 'visited' Johannesburg more times than I can remember. Despite sometimes going via Johannesburg several times in one trip, I had never stepped outside of the airport.
Walvis Bay or Swakopmund will feature on most itineraries for Namibia. The first time I went there, I found this to be a bit odd. I mean Swakopmund is a nice enough town, but it isn't somewhere I would typically add to an itinerary, especially one that is pushed for time to see other more beautiful destinations in Namibia. I soon learnt that the reason for this inclusion is logistical as opposed to being a 'must-see'.
