Bordered by the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, South Africa is a vast land often called ‘a world in one country’. Its landscapes stretch from tropical white-sand beaches to snow-capped mountains and include spectacular views and wildlife-filled national parks and reserves.
In contrast to areas of natural beauty are cosmopolitan cities boasting excellent museums and world class restaurants. As the most developed country on the continent, South Africa offers the widest choice of cultural, wildlife, leisure and sporting activities, all linked by excellent roads, internal flights and luxurious rail services.
Highlights of a South African safari holiday may include visiting the vibrant city of Cape Town, overshadowed by the imposing Table Mountain; taking in the gastronomic delights of the surrounding Winelands area; enjoying a classic wildlife safari in any of the ‘Big Five’ private reserves that fringe the Kruger National Park; hiking in the wild landscapes of the Drakensberg Mountains or exploring the beaches and marine reserves of subtropical KwaZulu-Natal.
