The best sunsets in South Africa according to us!

Sunsets in South Africa: Safaris


Coming in at top spot for us is a Tswalu sunset. Nothing beats the red sands and the brilliant glow of gold as the sun sets and strikes the horizon, shooting shards of pink and orange throughout the sky.


Sunsets in South Africa’s magical heartland, the Great Karoo is a top spot for a sunset, particularly if you are relaxing on your private Milky Way Star Bed at the sensational Samara. This place offers unique opportunities whether it’s a romantic getaway, a family safari, tracking cheetah on foot or of course the Milky Way star bed.  Sunsets here touch the soul.

Sunsets in South Africa: Cities & towns

You should check out sunsets in South Africa cities and towns because they are truly special in their own right.

Lions Head

Cape Town’s Lions Head has to come in the top ten for sure. It is an iconic mountain overlooking the mother city as if it was a noble protector.  Allow an hour to hike up and it really is worth the mis spectacular views in the entire city. Watch the last rays shine across the ocean and the city illuminate.

Route 62

Route 62 is a hidden gem and offers the ultimate freedom to explore. Imagine beautiful mountain passes, quaint, quirky towns and brilliant sunsets. We recently savoured a few nights at Galenia, just outside Montagu and the sunsets from there was sensational.
