A truly unforgettable experience, South Africa really has it all: sun, sea and the adventures of a lifetime.

Travel Information

South Africa is a diverse country which offers a wide range of holiday choices. From a South African safari to sampling fine South African wines in the vineyards of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, the country offers something for everyone.

Most people start in Cape Town where you can visit the iconic Table Mountain and Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for eighteen years of his incarceration. With beautiful beaches and stunning views, the city is a cosmopolitan haven.

Then pick up a car and head into the winelands to spend a few nights in quaint accommodation ensuring you sample the finest South African wine from the very vineyards in which they are produced.

Driving the Garden Route is also a popular South African holiday idea. With its incredible coastal vistas, it’s impossible not to be seduced by the stunning natural beauty. Enjoy South African wildlife, beaches and beautiful lakes and lagoons alongside majestic mountain landscapes that make the Garden Route a bucket-list experience.

No South African holiday would be complete without experiencing a traditional South African safari and game drive. The sheer range of South African wildlife on offer means that finding a quaint resort to enjoy a your favourite cocktail as the sun sets is not optional, it’s a must.

Homosexuality is a vexed issue in Africa, but in South Africa it’s far easier. South Africa is the unofficial gay capital of Africa. You’ll find Africa’s biggest LGBT community in Cape Town.

Explore Cape Town, the most cosmopolitan city in Africa. Stroll around the V&A Harbour, party in De Waterkant and take a trip up Table Mountain. From the top of the mountain you’ll be greeted with one of the most dramatic views on the planet.

Set out on a safari and pursue the Big 5 through one of the great parks, such as Kruger National Park. You can stay in luxury accommodation, go for morning game drives, enjoy sundowners by the pool and discover the mysteries of the African bush.

Silvermine Nature Reserve is part of Table Mountain National Park. It’s a great place to have a picnic or go for a trek. At the edge of the reserve you’ll find Peers Cave, an ancient burial site.

    Fly to either Cape Town or Johannesburg direct from a number of international airports. You'll also find flights for an onward journey to places such as Mauritius.
