We adore South Africa......
We ADORE South Africa! It really has
to be one of the most spectacular countries on the planet, with dramatic
scenery at every turn - add in fabulous wildlife, great cities, a lovely climate
(rarely too hot, rarely too cold) and some of the best food & wine (we’re
easily swayed!) anywhere, and it’s easy to see why South Africa is one of our
All South Africa trips should take in CapeTownat some point - talk about an incredible city! The setting is stunning,
with Table Mountain as its backdrop, plus there’s loads to see and do. We love
the hop-on hop-off buses that will take you to all of the main sights,
including the beaches of Camps Bay and the seals of Hout Bay. Be sure to head down
to the Cape Peninsula – dramatic scenery, incredible flora & fauna, and all
just a short drive form the city. South Africa is perfect for a Fly-Drive holiday,
or we can also arrange an Escorted Tour, or just a few days in a couple of locations
with transfers included if you prefer not to drive. Driving is easy, though, and
this is where South Africa really comes in to its own.
One of the most famous drives is the classic
Garden Route, but there are many ways to take in this area - we love
including a bit of the Karoo region with its barren landscapes and quirky
towns. And don’t get us started on the Winelands – anywhere that has a hop-on
hop-off tram for wine tasting is top of our list!
South Africa is also home to
some excellent wildlife too, with Kruger National Parkleading the way
plus numerous private game reserves offering easy game viewing coupled with
impressive accommodation options - anyone for safari tents with private plunge
pools?! All in all it’s the diversity and natural beauty that makes South
Africa so special - plus it’s great value for money, and did we mention the
wine?! It’s a big country so don't try to do too much in one go, but we’re sure
that you’ll be planning your return trip to take in another area of the Country
before you’ve even got home!
