Take a trip to the Rainbow Nation, better known as South Africa. This fascinating and diverse country offers everything from a relaxing beach holiday to exhilarating adventure tours.
South Africa is proud of its stunning coastlines on the Indian and Atlantic Oceans. With its powdery white sand and warm sparkling waters on the coast, and it’s amazing mountain ranges and game parks inland, South Africa is open for exploration.
Main airports lead visitors to Johannesburg, Durban or Cape Town first, which are fascinating cities. Cape Town is known as the ‘Mother City’ of South Africa and is vibrant and sophisticated. Table Mountain looms over the city, watching the cultures of a lively and bustling city scene. Cape Town boasts a beautiful harbour, where you can relax and watch the sunset.
The city of Durban lies on the East Coast of South Africa. It is home to Africa’s busiest port but also offers a cosmopolitan city scene. In Durban there is fantastic shopping, dining to die for, and exciting entertainment. Also you’ll find stunning beaches along the Indian Ocean, which are definitely worth a visit.
The hub of South Africa has to be the city of Johannesburg. This is South Africa’s cultural home as well as its financial and economic core. Johannesburg is fast moving and always developing.
If you’re out sightseeing there are numerous famous wine routes and wine tasting opportunities in the beautiful vineyards of the region. Failing that there is the beautiful Western Cape and the Garden Route down south, not to mention the stunning game reserves. South Africa is a great place to experience the wildlife that roams throughout the country. The big five you’ll definitely see are rhino, elephant, lion, buffalo and leopard. What you saw on a David Attenbrough documentary, becomes a reality. Be aware though that accommodation on safari is varied, from wilderness tours in the bush to fully catered luxurious 5 star lodges – the choice is yours.
