South Africa

South Africa is one of the fastest growing tourism destinations, and its not very hard to see why. Often referred to as the “rainbow nation” with its many different cultures and over 11 different official languages. It just so happens that the landscape of this vast country, follows that same pattern in diversity.

The internationally renowned Kruger National Park and one of the largest of its kind in Africa, encompasses a two-million hectare region, stretching across the Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces. Iconic and undoubtedly the epitome of safari in South Africa, the park is home to the Big Five and a vast array of animal species which can be explored from different settings, ranging from luxury award winning lodges in concession areas to tented camps tucked away in the African bush. Due to its vast size a wide range of habitats can be explored with open vehicle game drives and depending on your accommodation choice tourists can enjoy fine dining, plunge pools overlooking watering holes and traditional bush barbeques under the stars.

Cape Town is a must-see when journeying to South Africa. The city find’s itself in a picturesque setting at the foot of one of the 7 natural wonders of the world, Table Mountain which forms part of the mountain range that extends to Cape Point.

One of the most fabled regions in South Africa, the Garden Route is a veritable ‘Garden of Eden’, winding its way along the Indian Ocean between Heidelberg to the Storms River.

PRIVATE SAFARI RESERVES

The private safari reserves that border the Kruger National Park, such as Sabi Sands, Timbavati, Balule, Manyeleti and Klaserie, all form part of this larger eco system, and many of the fences between these areas have been removed to ensure free movement of animals and restoration of ancient migration routes. Sabi Sands and Timbavati reserves offer some of the finest upmarket safari lodges and excellent BIG 5 game viewing in the world.

PANORAMA ROUTE

Beyond the Kruger National Park, offering stunning mountainous scenery is The Panorama Route. Visit the grandeur of the Blyde River Canyon, God’s Window and Bourkes Luck Potholes, and exquisite waterfalls in the towns of Graskop and Sabie. The greater region offers much scenic diversity, with bush veld, deep valleys, mountainous cliffs, waterfalls, grasslands and rivers – beautiful surrounds in which holiday making goes far beyond reveling in the bounty of fauna and flora and includes many cultural, outdoor and adventure activities.

CAPE TOWN SURROUNDS

Equally famed are the surrounding regions that have gained an international reputation for its diverse attractions and splendour. The sweeping vineyards of the Franschhoek and Stellenbosch regions, the quant fishing villages along the West Coast and the dramatic Namaqualand wild flower colour displays during season are just some of the many sights completing the scenic tapestry. The region is not just a feast for the eyes with its white sandy beaches, towering mountain ranges, botanical gardens and ocean scenery – but also offers an array of excellent restaurants (many with sweeping ocean views), a vibrant night life, fabulous retail, interesting cultural experiences and various historic attractions, of which Robben Island is noteworthy. No visit to Southern Africa would be complete without spending time in the mother city – either from at the start or as the last port of call.

GARDEN ROUTE 

The journey along this famed stretch of coastline pass along truly fantastic scenery with mountain ranges, seaside villages, lakes, rivers and the lush Tsitsikama Forest. Dotted along the way are the coastal towns of Wilderness, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay with their beautiful beaches, lagoons and rivers and also hot spots for many outdoor adventuring and adrenaline sports.

The range of activities is simply endless and for all ages including surfing, mountain biking, bird watching, kayaking and the highest bungee jump in the world from Bloukrans bridge. The Eastern Cape is sometimes referred to the province of great extremes, given its multiple biodiversity. Flanking the Indian Ocean it is naturally rich in fauna and flora with an abundant marine and bird life and boasts several national parks, game reserves and private concessions with award winning luxury Big Five safari lodges in a malaria free environment. One of the recommended attractions in proximity to Port Elizabeth is certainly the Addo Elephant National Park that serves as a beacon of eco tourism in this region.
