As the first country in the world to include a sexual orientation protection clause in its constitution and the fifth country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage, South Africa is the LGBTQ+ capital of Africa. LGBTQ+ South Africans are allowed to change their legal gender markers, adopt children, and serve openly in the military. There are established LGBTQ+ communities and scenes in Cape Town and Johannesburg, with smaller communities in Pretoria and Durban. Join South African Tourism to learn why those facts coupled with a remarkable variety of real and authentic travel experiences from world-class safari to adrenaline pumping adventure to inspiring explorations of culture make South Africa an ideal holiday destination for LGBTQ+ travelers looking for an especially warm welcome.
