A South African holiday experience will stay with you forever – it’s that kind of place and you’ll discover so many reasons for wanting to come back again and again. South Africa is a diverse and beautiful country and has a huge amount to offer from cosmopolitan cities to picturesque vineyards, beautiful beaches and breath-taking safaris.

For a more Luxurious travel you can jump aboard on the Blue Train or Rovos Rail and enjoy the most picturesque views imaginable.

South Africa could easily take the title of Africa’s most diverse country with a staggering array of terrain from rugged mountains to pristine coastline with deserts, winelands and cosmopolitan cities in between. Unsurprisingly South Africa has a long list of attractions from the iconic table top mountain to the attractive towns along the Garden Route. The Eastern Cape, home to the popular Kruger National Park, is particularly well-suited to first time visitors and families with the winning combination of wildlife-rich reserves and breath-taking scenery. It’s said that Kruger has the greatest variety of wildlife in Africa. Lion, elephant, leopard, cheetah and giraffe are present as are a profusion of other herbivores. Established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, this national park of nearly 2 million hectares is unrivalled in the diversity of its life forms and is a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies.

The sublimely picturesque city of Cape Town is a strong highlight with a creative and multi-cultural population, golden beaches and a fascinating heritage. For adrenaline junkies there’s plenty of thrilling experiences on offer from cage shark diving to bungee-jumping.
