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 favourite places!

All South Africa trips should take in CapeTown at 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 Park leading 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!
