South Africa

South Africa is the continent’s richest country. Rich in gold, diamonds, wildlife, scenery...

The Rainbow Nation offers a kaleidoscope of experiences. From vineyards to gold and diamond mines, from safaris to whale watching, from a desert to a Garden Route, from beaches to mountains.

So where do you start?

There’s exciting wildlife encounters to be had in the Kruger – the best-stocked game reserve in Africa – and self-drives to enjoy along the iconic Garden Route. There’s KwaZulu-Natal where you can hear local guides recount the dramatic battles of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift, and the extraordinary, water-carved potholes of Bourke’s Luck.

You could tour any number of world class wineries; climb Table Mountain; travel through a rolling, flowering desert; or stand on the edge of one of the world’s largest man-made holes. But maybe you’d prefer to go surfing and shark diving from fabulous beaches, or spend some time bargaining in the bustling Indian markets of Durban.

Speak to one of our South Africa specialists about a tailor-made holiday and you could even find yourself standing on the southernmost tip of the continent at Cape Agulhas, watching the mighty Atlantic and Indian oceans collide.

With 21 national parks, eight World Heritage Sites and 1,600 miles of pristine coastline to explore, we will use our experience and expertise to ensure your holiday is just right.
