South Africa Holidays

Affectionately known as the ‘rainbow nation’ due to its eclectic mix of different cultures, South Africa is the kind of holiday destination that truly has something for everyone.

From awesome mountains and pristine beaches to thrilling safaris and sprawling cities, South Africa is a vast country with so much to see and do that one visit is often never enough.

A firm favourite with holidaymakers the world over is the beautiful cosmopolitan city of Cape Town. Sitting in the shadows of the majestic Table Mountain; which can be seen from almost anywhere in the city, Cape Town is South Africa’s most picturesque, romantic and cultured destination. It is also home to the country’s most popular tourist attraction, the V & A Waterfront. This vibrant entertainment hotspot blends seamlessly with Cape Town’s working harbour, offering many of the city’s best restaurants, bars and retail stores.

Away from the cities and you have the choice of thrilling activities such as travelling along the stunningly beautiful Garden Route. Meandering along South Africa’ south-eastern coast, the route is incredibly popular as it features the most diverse landscape you can imagine. From sandy white beaches dotted along the coast to idyllic lagoons and picturesque lakes further inland, not to mention imposing rugged mountain ranges and thick, evergreen forests. All of this is interspersed with a number of historic, sleepy little towns and villages that offer fantastic hospitality.

For an even more thrilling adventure, South Africa is home to some of the world’s best wildlife reserves. Amongst the very best of these is the renowned Kruger National Park. As safari destinations go, it is truly one of the most exciting with an abundance of wild animals including the Big Five (the African lion, African elephant, African leopard, Cape buffalo and the rhinoceros). It also offers five star accommodation in the shape of luxury tented suites and exclusive lodges, so not only do you get to enjoy some excellent game viewing you get to do it in style.
