South Africa

With 11 languages, nine provinces and two oceans, South Africa is the epitome of diversity. From Africa’s economic powerhouse Johannesburg to the famous Kruger National Park to the warm Indian Ocean city of Durban to regular tourism award winning Cape Town, South Africa truly offers something for everyone. South Africa is blessed with an incredibly diverse natural environment and counts deserts, mountain rages, forests, savannahs, wetlands and golden beaches amongst its ecological regions. Couple the natural beauty with some of the world’s best golf courses and sporting infrastructure, wining and dining, a thriving cultural scene and you’re truly spoilt for choice.

Some of the many destinations on offer include the cosmopolitan cities of Cape Town; the scenic regions of the Winelands, Hermanus, and the Garden Route; the historical provinces of the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal; and the world-famous game parks of the Kruger National Park, Sabi Sands and Madikwe. The travel network in South Africa is on par with most first world countries, so getting around is quick and easy.

South Africa’s premier hotel, lodge & assorted luxury hospitality offerings are some of the very best in the world. They include the Table Bay Hotel, the Cape Grace, the Mount Nelson Hotel all in Cape Town along with Mala Mala Main Camp, Singita Boulders & Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge in the Kruger National Park & the Westcliff Hotel & Melrose Arch Hotel in Johannesburg.

We live here and we love South Africa. Having travelled extensively around this beautiful and diverse country, we can provide honest, first-hand South African safari & hotel advice. We are proud and confident of what we have to offer anyone who is considering a first time or repeat visit to the Rainbow Nation.
