A South African holiday offers the best of the continent, combining stylish, sophisticated cities with plenty of culture and wide expanses of wilderness, home to a stunning array of wildlife. Accommodation ranges from chic city centre boutique hotels, to remote eco bush camps, quayside resorts and the old-fashioned luxury of heritage properties.
Safari destinations include the vast Kruger National Park, home to great herds of buffalo and zebra, plus elephants, hippos, black rhino, giraffe and big cats.
Johannesburg is South Africa’s largest city, a vibrant metropolis and gateway for safaris, while the coastal Cape region features wide uncrowded beaches, attractive resorts, and Cape Town itself, one of the world’s most exciting and dramatically located cities.
The Winelands of the Western Cape are dotted with prestigious vineyards, beautiful rolling hills and valleys, traditional Cape Dutch architecture and lively gastronomic towns like Wellington and Franschoek. Then there’s the scenic Garden Route, one of the world’s great drives, passing through fashionable resorts like Knysna and Plettenberg Bay and following the breathtaking Cape coastline.
