With cosmopolitan Cape Town, Big 5 safari in Kruger National Park, picturesque winelands scenery, adventure on the Garden Route and sun-drenched beaches, we are thoroughly enticed by South Africa's variety.

South Africa, fondly known as the 'Rainbow Nation' offers a melting pot of cultures and a rich history. For the most authentic interaction with modern African culture, don't miss out on the urban vibes of Johannesburg, or 'Jozi' for short.

What would a holiday be without food? South Africa's rainbow of cultures ensures that its food scene offers a fascinating variety of delicious dishes blending tantalizing European cuisine, the sweet-sour tastes of the Malays and the spicy curries from India alongside the indigenous cooking of the African people. We will expertly plan your gastronomic journey with personal restaurant recommendations allowing opportunities to taste South Africa's internationally renowned wines.

Did we mention the climate? South Africa averages up to 9 hours of sunshine a day, regardless of season!

Whether you are posing for photos at the top of Cape Town's Table Mountain, soaking up the sun on Durban's beaches or toasting the African sunset on safari, the country's first world facilities and excellent infrastructure make South Africa surprisingly stress-free to travel around, despite its size.

For our honeymooners wishing to experience a range of experiences, holidays to South Africa present one of the few places able to offer a safari, a city break and a beach holiday in one trip. Fabulous settings, luxury accommodation and high class service complete the package.

Forget Disneyland and take your children on a South African family safari. Our specially designed children's programmes bring the magic of a safari to life. Days will be filled with fun-filled and educational game drives and activities like collecting bugs, pods and feathers and learning how to identify game and animal tracks.

The South Africa adventure is diverse, from safari exploits deep in the wilderness to climbing the snow-capped peaks of the Drakensberg mountain range. Watch whales breach the waves from golden beaches or plunge below the water to cage-dive with sharks.

South Africa never fails to exceed our expectations. Start your planning today and contact one of our South Africa holiday specialists.
