Welcome to South Africa

Home > South Africa

South Africa is often referred to as a world in one country and it certainly deserves this title. There are very few places on earth which offer such a diversity of landscapes, cultures, wildlife and activities. Whether it is safaris or cities, beaches or winelands, surfing or skiing that you are looking for, you can find it all here.

  • The most consistent big 5 game viewing you will find anywhere in Africa
  • Africa’s most luxurious lodges and hotels
  • The highest standards of food, wine and service
  • Non-malaria reserves are perfect for family safaris
  • The weak exchange rates equate to fantastic value

Safaris in South Africa

In terms of safaris, the Kruger region is an area which stands head and shoulders above the rest. We tend to prefer the private Sabi Sand and Timbavati reserves which adjoin the national park.

The big 5 game viewing here is the most consistent you will find anywhere, with leopard and rhinoceros sightings being especially phenomenal. South Africa is also the only country which offers non-malarial reserves. Coupled with the stable political situation and easy style of safari, this makes it the best family destination in Africa.

Cape Town - voted as one of the top cities in the world to visit

Cape Town is Africa’s most beautiful city and also its food and wine capital. With Table Mountain straddling it on one side and the Atlantic Ocean stretching out on the other, it creates a very special presence. With so much to see and do, most visitors will allow for at least 4 nights here.

The Winelands towns of Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and Paarl are a mere hour’s drive from here and offer more incredible food, wine and spectacular mountain scenery. Slightly further on down the coast lies the town of Hermanus, which also deserves a mention for its whale watching between June – November.

Luxury safaris & hotels

To add to its appeal, South Africa's lodges and hotels here are the most luxurious in Africa. The standard of food, hospitality and service are truly world class. In addition, the country can be enjoyed throughout the year and the weak exchange rate makes it very affordable most of the time. What’s not to love!
