Our Guide to South Africa

South Africa

South Africa is home to mountain ranges, arid deserts, wild swamps and vast savannah. At the southernmost tip, stunning beaches, winelands and the vibrant city of Cape Town await. The country's national parks provide visitors with some of the most rewarding game viewing and luxurious accommodation in Africa. South Africa is a country of enough contrasts and diversity to satisfy a continent.

South Africa is one of the most beautiful and varied countries on the planet; there truly is something for everyone here, whether you are looking for a luxury honeymoon or an unforgettable family safari. From the rich Atlantic waters of the Cape to the warm Indian Ocean, the thick bushveld of Limpopo Province to the dramatic and arid scenery of the Karoo and Kalahari, the excitement and color of Cape Town to the sleepy coastal towns of the Garden Route. Indulge in the superb food and wine on offer in Cape Town and nearby winelands, hike through the Cedarberg mountains to ancient rock art sites, watch whales off the shore of Hermanus and watch dolphins at Plettenberg Bay. KwaZulu Natal boasts enough to fill an entire trip alone, with fascinating battlefields history, the dramatic Drakensberg Mountains and wonderful Zulu culture. Meanwhile, the world-famous national park's and wildlife areas: Kruger, Madikwe, Kalahari and Eastern Cape, amongst many others, are home to mindblowing wildlife, including the 'big five'. They boast superb game viewing opportunities alongside some of the most luxurious lodges in Africa.
