South Africa

The world in one country

South Africa

One of our favourite spots in Southern Africa – the rainbow nation really does offer a world in one country. Cosmopolitan Sandton with chic boutiques through to Soweto and the Apartheid Museum – contrasts of old and new abound in Johannesburg. Luxury lodges on private game reserves through to camping and walking safaris offer everyone the chance to get up close and personal with the Big 5.

Try your luck at the casinos of Sun City or take on the Gary Player golf course as the professionals do every December. Zulu history, great diving and walking in world heritage sites as well as an abundance of top class golf courses and one of the biggest shopping and entertainment centres in the world – what is there not to like about Kwa Zulu Natal. The coastal scenery of the Garden Route leads into land based whale watching in Hermanus or head inland to the Karoo and Route 62 or the Brandy route. 

The Western Cape is world famous for its wine and what could be better than being driven through the vineyards tasting before stopping for a top class lunch? The cuisine in South Africa is varied and of a high standard and with the current exchange rate superb value. No trip is complete without a visit to Cape Town – the mountain is a must, as is Robben Island, the beaches around Camps Bay, Kirstenbosch Gardens and just soaking up the atmosphere in Greenmarket Square.
