South Africa

Experience and Explore

Overview

If you haven’t been to Africa before, this is the place to start. 

In our opinion, the best itinerary for a first-timer gives a taste of South Africa’s many different flavours. We’re thinking Cape Town, the Winelands, the Garden Route and safari. We warn you, though, South Africa gets under your skin; one visit and you’re hooked.

There’s so much more to it than the Garden Route. (That said, the 300km stretch from Mossel Bay to Plettenberg Bay rightly deserves its spot on so many peoples’ bucket lists.) Combine a safari with a city break. Mix wine tasting with whale watching. Blend desert trails with mountain hikes. It’s a long way from a basic beach holiday.

Tell us what you want to do and we’ll work out how to make it happen. Crashing down dunes in a Land Rover your kind of thing? No problem. Prefer to sip Champagne on Table Mountain or dine by candlelight in the bush? You’ve got it. We can even arrange family days out, complete with guides and nannies who know how to keep children entertained. 

And when it’s time to recharge your batteries, do it over a spicy Cape Malay dish or a braai beneath the stars – washed down with a bottle from the oldest wine industry outside Europe.


Foreign Office: The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) issues travel advice on destinations, which includes information on passports, visas, health, safety and security. We urge you to visit their website before deciding to travel.

You’ve heard the clichés before. It’s the Rainbow Nation. The world in one country.

What can we say? They’re all true. Look up ‘diverse’ in the dictionary, and you’ll find South Africa.

How

We recommend flying into Johannesburg or Cape Town, from here various regional flights are available making it combinable with most of the countries surrounding South Africa.  

When

South Africa is a wonderful all year round destination, it gets a cooler in Cape Town and the Garden Route during the months of June to September however this time is excellent for game viewing in the Kruger. KwaZulu-Natal’s climate is sub-tropical, the weather varies from coast to mountains, sunshine is normally all year round with heat and humidity rising from September to March. Cape Town and the Garden Route enjoy fabulous weather from October to April.
