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? By talking to Chloe Henderson, one of our team of South Africa enthusiasts. Ask her to plan you a tailor-made holiday to Africa’s most dazzling country and you could find yourself standing on the southernmost tip of the continent, watching two gigantic oceans collide.

You could tour any number of world class wineries; climb Table Mountain; travel through a rolling, flowering desert; watch a mine dance or stand on the edge of the world’s deepest man-made hole. (It’s at Kimberley and has yielded billions of Rand’s worth of diamond since the first glittering stone was found in 1867.)

Chloe's tailor-made itinerary could mean you go surfing and shark diving from fabulous beaches, or spend time bargaining in the bustling Indian markets of Durban. It could see you exploring the Kruger – the best-stocked game reserve in Africa. Or visiting the extraordinary, water carved potholes of Bourke’s Luck, or….

Actually, with 21 national parks, eight World Heritage Sites and 3,500 miles of pristine coastline to visit, you may want to stay an extra month!
