South Africa Touring


As one of Africa’s largest and most developed nations, South Africa is also one of the world’s most extraordinarily diverse countries. This new world country has spectacular landscapes of mountain, open grasslands and beach, a cosmopolitan population that speak eleven official languages, three designated capital cities and some of the best wine on earth. And then there’s its iconic wildlife that have come to define the African safari continent wide. Find out why this beautiful country is winning hearts with its rich cultural and biological diversity on a South Africa safari tour, where flora, fauna, deserts, beaches and mountains define its status as one of the world’s best-loved holiday destinations.


Cape Town

Visitors seeking the sun and surf should head to the very south of South Africa, with a tour of Cape Town. Occupying a privileged spot on the south-west peninsula, Cape Town is considered to have one of the world’s most picturesque city settings, notably the stunning backdrop of Table Mountain. With its distinctive plateaued pinnacle, Table Mountain presides over Cape Town as a unique spectacle, the city sprawling around at its foot for a scene unlike any other in the world. Table Mountain provides more than just an incredible backdrop; it’s also popular for those with a penchant for adventure sports, with hiking, rock-climbing and caving all available within Table Mountain National Park. For the less ambitious, the cable car provides a more sedate route to the summit, but maintains equally magnificent vistas. Robben Island, the prison that incarcerated South African icon Nelson Mandela, off the coastline is now a popular tourist draw.

Wildlife and the Big Five

As impressive as man’s endeavours have been in creating South Africa’s urban sprawl, South Africa safari holidays have flora and fauna on the list by default. There is a huge choice of game reserves and national parks where you can observe the armoured wall of an advancing buffalo herd and the close emotional ties of African elephant families. Walk in lion pride territory, spot leopards dozing in treetops on scorching afternoons and creep through the Bushveld where rhinos trot between trees and bushes. No visit to the country is complete without experiencing its epic natural glory. Indeed, South Africa is a mostly flat and sparsely populated country, populated by thousands of species of plants and animals. African safari holidays don’t come better than the impressive roster of South Africa’s iconic animals.

South African Wine

Beyond the centre, Cape Town is a popular hub for onward South African explorations, its location close to the Cape Winelands making it a popular choice for wine connoisseurs. Pour glasses of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinotage whilst overlooking the landscapes of the renowned Stellenbosch Vineyards and the Boschendal Wine Estate.

The Garden Route

Take to the beautiful ‘Garden Route’ between the Western Cape and the Eastern Cape and prepare to be awe-inspired by the scenery that awaits you. On your travels, you will reach Knysna, home of the famous Knysna Elephant, and Plettenberg Bay, where the white beaches attract large numbers of visitors during the peak season.

Kruger National Park

Authentic, ‘back to nature’ South Africa safari holidays can be experienced in the world-famous Kruger National Park, an imperative stop on any visit. Straddling borders with Zimbabwe and Mozambique, Kruger National Park covers 7,523 square miles and is reputed for being the natural habitat of the ‘Big 5’ – Lion, Leopard, African Elephant, Black Rhinoceros and Cape Buffalo -, incredible animals that have few natural enemies.

Well-organised South Africa safari holidays and safari tours provide a stunning glimpse into the habitat of these magnificent creatures, a breathtaking experience that not even the most brilliantly-shot documentary can ever replicate. Indeed, few countries can offer such an enticing blend of adventure in Cape Town, scenic beauty of the Garden Route and nature’s glory of Kruger National Park in one unforgettable package.
