South Africa is sometimes described as ‘Africa in one country’ and with its many and varied attractions it is easy to see why it’s such a popular holiday destination.

Cape Town, overlooked by Table Mountain, has historical Robben Island, Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, beautiful beaches and many more attractions. The Garden Route has spectacular scenery with stretches of attractive coastline affording whale-watching, wildlife and bird watching opportunities.

The Winelands are famous for their rugged beauty with fertile valleys and lush vineyards, where you can learn about wine production and sample the country’s most famous produce. The unspoilt Western and Northern Cape has small towns and beautiful scenery as well as the annual ‘miracle’ of Namaqualand, when the desert is carpeted with flowers for mile after mile.

The Eastern Cape boasts a wonderful array of game reserves providing the safari of a lifetime. KwaZulu-Natal is a scenic region with the Drakensberg Mountains, historic Battlefields and beaches lapped by the warm Indian Ocean. Madikwe’s game reserves and those of famous Kruger National Park, one of Africa’s largest game reserves, offer excellent game viewing with high densities of birds and wildlife including the Big Five.
