While travelling to other countries is a joy that everyone should experience at least once in their lives, getting a visa to travel to your country of choice can be a serious hassle – not to mention the fact that it adds exorbitant extra costs to your travel budget! While we may joke about our beloved ‘green mamba’ passport as having little clout in the travel world, there are a few travel destinations that don’t require South Africans to apply for a visa. Avoid the nasty paperwork and check out this list of countries South Africans can visit visa-free.
1. Peru – The Americas
Covering the largest part of the Amazon rainforest (second to Brazil), Peru offers some of the most mysterious and beautiful sites in the world.
2. Argentina – The Americas
From learning to tango to drinking some pretty spectacular wine, Argentina offers more than just night-life. The capital Buenos Aires is also renowned as one of the world’s most exhilarating cities.
3. Jamaica – Caribbean
The home of reggae, the Bob Marley Museum, and the perfect spot for cocktails on the beach, this Caribbean island is known for having the best snorkelling and diving spots.
4. The Bahamas – Caribbean
From sandy white beaches to crystal blue waters, the Bahamas is home to almost every breed of shark, and a scuba divers’ paradise.
5. South Korea – Asia
For those looking for a combination of tranquillity and buzz, South Korea is the place to go. Don’t miss out on trying the traditional street food or visiting some of the most beautiful Buddhist landmarks.
6. Thailand – Asia
With constant warm weather, endless days on the beach, and friendly locals, this postcard-perfect tropical island is on every list of must-visit spots.
7. Zambia – Africa
Just a stone’s throw away from home, Zambia offers visitors the opportunity to meet wildlife eye-to-eye. For the more outdoorsy type, the country offers white water rafting down the Zambezi river or bungee jumping from Victoria Falls bridge.
8. Botswana – Africa
The land of untouched beauty, fantastic game-viewing, and incredible people, Botswana is the place to go for those wanting to avoid the crowds. Very much at the centre of Botswana’s safari industry, the breathtakingly beautiful Okavango Delta is on many people’s travel bucket lists.
9. Fiji – Oceania
Fiji’s crystal-clear South Pacific seawater, and its ideal location along protected reefs (renowned for their brilliant soft coral formations and 1,000 species of fish), make snorkelling and diving a major drawcard for visiting this island nation.
Known for its pub culture, trying a Guinness beer here is compulsory. Farmer’s markets are scattered across landscapes and castles are around every corner.
