South Africa

overview

South Africa is the best of both worlds: it is Africa with its beautiful scenery, glorious weather and relaxed attitude, which manifests itself in the people who are friendly and easy-going; it also has a modern infrastructure making it an easy country to visit with plenty to see and do and plenty of ways to get around.

With a vast network of excellent roads, South Africa is road trip country. Domestic flights are also dirt cheap if you're not into the whole mixtape, padkos, back roads, one-horse town meander and want to get straight to the action.

  • Cape Town: to the backdrop of Table Mountain, Cape Town's white beaches and café culture, world-class restaurants, working harbour, urban nature reserves and vineyards have earned this African city a season ticket to all the "World's Favourite City" polls.
  • Kruger National Park: featuring great diversity, exceptional resource management and some of the finest safari lodges in the world, the Kruger Park is the grand-daddy of many game reserves in South Africa.
  • Garden Route: packed with an assortment of attractions from family beaches, charming seaside towns, forests and fynbos and the Karoo hinterland, the Garden Route is made for relaxing holidays.
  • Garden Route Safari: at the eastern end of the Garden Route are a clutch of genuine, big five game reserves in pristine wilderness areas offering excellent lodges, first-rate guides and the cherry on top: malaria-free safaris.
  • Cape Winelands: if the game reserves are the eastern bookend of the Garden Route, the Winelands are the western bookend. And what a bookend with charming country towns, beautiful nature reserves and of course the ever-so-picturesque vineyards.

South Africa has many many more attractions and if you want to explore beyond the highlights: Malaria-free big five safaris in Madikwe and Pilanesberg; Sun City; The Namaqualand Flowers; the Drakensberg Mountains; Phinda Game Reserve and KwaZulu-Natal; the West Coast; Richtersveld Nature Reserve and many more.

South Africa

You have about 600km between Cape Town and George and 10 days to explore it all. Sure, you could drive it in a day, but where's the fun in that? And besides that’s entirely not the point. This is a road trip deluxe so cruise at will; roam free and linger longer whenever and wherever you choose.

Cape Town Tour and Kruger National Park Safari

South Africa

6 days, 5 nights. And a choice of standard, luxury or superior accommodation. Now let’s be honest. Cape Town may well be a city but it’s a very green one. And blue. It’s grown up amongst the wilds of the mountains and the might of the ocean. A backdrop of wildlife rather than industrialisation. And when it comes to the Kruger, think quality and quantity. This place has more species of large mammals than any other African game reserve.

Ultimate South Africa Safari

South Africa

This is going to be one helluva an adventure. 3 weeks of introspection. Watching. Listening. Looking. Looking so much that you actually see. Breathing in. (And out hopefully.) Humming tunes. Simon & Garfunkel. Press play. “Slow down, you move too fast. You got to make the morning last”. Indeed. That’s the sentiment.

There! Did you see it? That’s the scenery constantly changing around you. And the best bit? You’re at the wheel so the pace of discovery is entirely in your hands. Drive on.
