The country's national parks provide visitors with some of the most rewarding game viewing and luxurious accommodation in Africa.

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.
