World-class variety is what really sets South Africa apart from the rest of Africa – from large cities to Big Five wilderness, sprawling swimming beaches to magnificent mountains, action or relaxation – it’s all there. Venture out of the bustling popular destinations, and you will find hidden gems in quirky villages, historic battlefields, imposing natural features and remote wilderness areas which will have you coming back for more. This is why South Africa is perfect for those first-time-to-Africa trips as it combines so many different experiences in one holiday.
There is a tangible vibrancy and exciting energy to Johannesburg, its biggest city, while Cape Town will have you enthralled with its beauty. This is a true rainbow nation, a melting pot of different people, religions and cultures which make for life-changing experiences. Direct flights to and from many international countries make travelling there easy, and an excellent road infrastructure ensures every corner of the country is there for you to discover, guided or on your own.
