South Africa

south Africa really is many worlds in one. Expect stunning coastlines, dramatic mountain scapes, huge areas of untamed bushveld, starkly beautiful semi-deserts, lakes, waterfalls, spectacular canyons, forests and wide plains

Apart from the big-name game parks of Kruger and the Kgalagadi (Kalahari) Transfrontier Park, South Africa is home to some of the world's most  luxurious private game reserves and lodges . Wildlife lovers come here from all corners of the globe in search of the "Big Five": lion, buffalo, leopard, rhino, and elephant, and often they find it, and so much more.

Coral reefs, dragon-backed mountain ranges, white-water rafting, and golden beaches lapped by legendary surf breaks are some of South Africa's many other attractions.

Traveling around this vast land and touring the vibrant cities, you can learn about the nation's turbulent history — in Cape Town, one of the world's most beautiful cities; in Durban, a melting pot of cultures and cuisines; at the poignant museums and galleries in Johannesburg; and in Soweto, birthplace of Nelson Mandela, who helped birth democracy here.

Safari-goers are best travelling to South Africa in the cooler winter months (May to September), when game-viewing conditions are superb. All things considered, September is the best month to travel to South Africa to experience a combination of all the country has to offer.

A Quick Glance

What Is South Africa Famous For?

Cape Town

Cape Town’s is beautiful coastal views, picturesque lakes and gorgeous farmlands and makes for a perfect road trip. It's here that you'll find South Africa's best and most famous wine growing regions and vineyards, including Stellenbosch, Constantia and Paarl.


Johannesburg offers many wonderful cultural experiences. The diversity is great to see and be a part of. One area worth mentioning and seeing is Melville – representing wider Johannesburg, in its people as well as its activities. Melville Koppies is an activity I would definitely recommend while traveling Johannesburg.

The Garden Route

The Garden Route officially begins in Mossel Bay and ends in Storms River in the east. Knysna, in the middle of the Garden Route, is a great place to stay because all of the attractions are close by, and the accommodations are excellent


The best time to visit South Africa for a wildlife safari is from May to September. During these winter months, the east of the country (where the main parks are located) experiences its Dry season. Wildlife is easier to spot during the Dry season because vegetation thins, and animals gather around waterholes and rivers. 


Cape Town’s Dry and Wet seasons are opposite to those in Kruger. Therefore, the best time for visiting Cape Town and surrounds is during the dry summer months of November to March

From the aptly names Temple of Courage swimmers drop a heart stopping 17 metres down a chute and under a bridge before splashing into a small pool at the foot of the slide. For the less adventurous visitor to the Sun City Resort why not take a ride on the 'Lazy River'.
