South Africa

At the southernmost point of the mighty African continent, the waters of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans collide and crash against the shores of South Africa’s Western Cape. Schools of whales steer close to broad beaches of white, surf-splashed sands, while lush evergreen forests, tranquil lakes and gigantic rock formations create the startling beauty renowned as the ‘Garden Route’. Cape Town is, without doubt, a truly spectacular city – a melting pot of vibrant cultures cradled by the slopes of majestic Table Mountain. Just beyond, the shimmering vineyards of the lush Cape Winelands nestle beneath brooding purple peaks. Protected wilderness areas yield excellent sightings of ‘Big 5’ game, especially so in Kruger National Park, an area about the size of Wales that has the greatest concentration of mammals in the world.

South Africa is a “world in one country”, from cosmopolitan Cape Town to the mountain peaks of Kwazulu Natal, from the crashing surf of the Atlantic to the magic of the African bush. The sheer variety on offer is quite astounding and comes as a surprise to all who visit. This, together with an interesting and diverse cultural mix and delightful climate, means that whatever type of holiday you’re looking for you’ll find it in South Africa.
