The Victoria Street Market in Durban is unique in South Africa. Barrels of Indian spices and incense infuse the air of this flea market and a visit is essential for those who want to experience Durban's relaxed Afro-Oriental atmosphere and pick up some great bargains. The market is a melting pot of vibrancy and you’ll definitely walk out with a souvenir or two. Great image from @mayajama by @saunderscb. #MeetSouthAfrica Follow @mayajama, @saunderscb & @aliceliveing on their epic South African road trip through the hashtag #BakkieStories and explore South Africa with them. #Travelgram #thisissouthafrica #travelsouthafrica #exploresouthafrica #SouthAfrica #wonderlust #Durban

With a clear 15km stretch of beach, natural forest, exciting outdoor adventures, cultural encounters on tap and a range of accommodations and restaurants, Chintsa in the Eastern Cape is recognised as 1 of South Africa’s prime coastal destinations. It’s the perfect chill-out hideaway for travellers of all ages. The region covered by the Wild Coast Jikeleza Route is among the most carefree areas on the planet, ideal for taking time off from the hustle and bustle of modern-day life. LENGTH OF STAY You can do the entire route in a day but you will miss plenty. Rather spend at least a week relaxing and exploring the area. Incredible snap by @gavmam18. #MeetSouthAfrica #SouthAfrica #thisissouthafrica #exploresouthafrica #Travelgram #wanderlust #travelsouthafrica #exploresouthafrica #Wonderlustsouthafrica #EasternCape #Chintsa
