South Africa (23 January 2019) – Online global travel site, Big 7 Travel, recently published a list of the World’s Most Instagrammable Countries 2019. South Africa came in 5th place. It was voted 5th due to its dramatic scenery, fantastic hiking trails and deserted beaches that boast spectacular ocean views.

The judges of the contest were really impressed by everything that South Africa has to offer. So they decided to list the 50 places that helped SA soar to the top of the list.

These are the destinations that sparked conversation between judges and were most mentioned by our readers in their SA votes.

“The results of Big 7 Travel’s global ranking proves that South Africa is a world class destination.
