When Do You Want To Go?

South Africa

Few holiday destinations can offer such diverse and unique experiences as South Africa.  A truly fascinating country, not only rich in culture and history, but this incredible place will also get your heart racing, taste buds tingling and create memories to last a lifetime.

South Africa is known for its outstanding wildlife and the famous Kruger National Park is one of its top safari destinations and home to the must see ‘Big 5’. The options are endless including luxury tented camps, spa lodges, campfires under starry skies and unforgettable game drives

From the wilds of the National parks, to the bustling metropolis of Cape Town, this beautiful city nestled at the base of Table Mountain has so much to offer. Take a boat ride out to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, take a stroll around the Victoria & Albert Waterfront, head out to the Cape of Good Hope to meet the local penguins or hop on the cable car to the top of Table Mountain to watch a magical sunset.  South Africa is firmly on the world stage for gastronomy and its wine is no exception.  The scenic Winelands encompass the regions of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, just a short drive from Cape Town. 

The Garden Route is yet another of South Africa’s wonders, stretching through 300km of breath-taking scenery, picturesque towns, and exciting adventures.  Visit Swellendam, one of the oldest Dutch settlements in South Africa, make friends with the ostriches at Oudtshoorn and watch them race, spot a whale in Hermanus, take a dramatic hike around the Robberg Peninsular and if your nerves allow, jump the highest bungee in the world at Tsitsikamma National Park.
