load shedding 5th social media sharing

South Africa is a beautiful place to live, an even better place to have a holiday and the 5th best place in the world to take envy-inducing Instagram photos


Instagram is a platform that people love to use to share snippets of their lives. South Africa is one of the top travel destinations in the world. Merge the two together and you get a match made in heaven.

Big 7 Travel compiled a list of 50 destinations which were ranked according to their popularity on Instagram. South Africa is ranked as 5th on the list after Australia, Hong Kong, Canada and Indonesia.

“South Africa has dramatic scenery, fantastic hiking trails and deserted beaches that boast spectacular ocean views. What more could you ask for?

Cape Town is an Instagrammer’s dream location to visit: endless natural beauty and clifftop views, pastel pink neighbourhoods and turquoise waters.” – Big 7 Travel

Not to mention South Africa is also home to the Big 5, the Panorama Route and the Big Hole. While the website only featured images of Cape Town, South Africa has so much beauty to offer.

Through the use of Instagram, South Africa has earned yet another accolade. People have taken some remarkable images of our beautiful country. Take a look below.
