Welcome to South Africa

A Taste of South Africa

A rainbow nation born out of a dark past, South Africa offers a wealth of contrasting attractions. Whether you’re looking for wildlife and wilderness, history and culture, fine wines and great food, big-city excitement or relaxation beside glittering beaches, South Africa has something wonderful for everyone. Add to this a warm welcome, stunning landscapes and a superb climate and you have the ingredients of a perfect holiday. helps you to pick and mix.

For wildlife enthusiasts, it’s hard to beat the thrill of spotting the ‘big five’ in their natural habitat. Enjoy a day’s safari during your stay in Cape Town. Or, if you’re taking the Garden Route, visit the Addo Elephant National Park which offers close encounters of the giant kind – probably the best elephant watching in South Africa. You can learn how to track animals on a walking tour of Kruger National Park. Or, for a really magical experience, get a bird’s eye view of the flora and fauna from a hot air balloon.

Opportunities for adventure are as dazzling as the South African scenery. You can cage-dive with the world’s premier predator, the Great White Shark. You can mountain bike up and abseil down Table Mountain. You can go white water rafting on the mighty Sabie River. And for something truly different, you can try sand-boarding on the largest dunes on the South African Cape or glide through the Tsitsikamma treetop canopy 30 metres above the ground!

You can view South Africa’s recent history at the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg, a grim reminder of the racial struggle. Visitors go on a fascinating, horrifying and inspiring journey that culminates in Nelson Mandela’s historic release from prison. A more remote past is conjured up on a tour to Isandhlwana and Rorke’s Drift, sites of the two most famous battles in the Zulu War.

The Rainbow Nation is waiting to be discovered and with you can experience its most brilliant sights and its most unusual attractions.
