South Africa

This vast country covering Africa's southernmost region is undoubtedly one of the most culturally and geographically diverse places on earth.

 

Fondly known by locals as the 'Rainbow Nation', South Africa has 11 official languages and its multicultural inhabitants are influenced by a fascinating mix of African, Asian and European cultures.

 

Spend your days discovering gourmet restaurants, art, night life and the fine beaches of Cape Town; hike, bike, surf or stand up paddle the Cape Peninsula with experts, enjoy a Tuk Tuk Tour of the Soweto township of Johannesburg; browse the bustling Indian markets in Durban; or sample some of the world’s finest wines at the myriad wine estates dotted around the picturesque Cape Winelands.

 

Due to its rich and turbulent history there are plenty of historical attractions to explore including the Zululand battlefields of KwaZulu-Natal, the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg and Robben Island, just off the coast of Cape Town.

 

Above all else, South Africa’s attraction lies in the plentiful wildlife to be found in the private & national game reserves such as the world famous Kruger National Park and surrounding reserves like the Timbavati and Sabi-Sands.
