Luxury South Africa Holidays
For epic safari, glorious beaches, cosmopolitan cool, luxury hotels and road trips to relish, visit South Africa! A South African holiday exceeds expectations with Zulu battlefields, wildlife-stalked savannahs, Big Five national parks, gorgeous beaches, rolling grasslands, and exquisite wine regions. Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu named South Africa's people the ‘Rainbow Nation’, a fitting description for this diverse and culture-rich land set at the southern tip of the world’s most epic continent.
For its sheer diversity, South Africa takes some beating. Edged on three sides by 3,000 kilometres of striking coastline, with the Atlantic Ocean to its west and the Indian Ocean to its east, it has nine provinces, and not one but three capital cities: Cape Town (legislative), Pretoria (administrative) and Bloemfontein (judicial).
For a dose of city cool, head to Cape Town with the iconic Table Mountain as its backdrop. Unwind at palm-fringed paradise Camps Bay, go the whale watching capital of the world at Hermanus, take a boat trip to the notorious offshore jail Robben Island, or head to the South African National Gallery. Equally inspiring is Johannesburg, a vibrant skyscraper-filled metropolis where you can step back in history with tours of the Gold Reef City.
South Africa seals the deal for animal and nature fans keen to pack in as much as possible. Take a trip along the famous Garden Route for beaches, mountains and forests. End on safari in the Addo Elephant National Park or on a private Eastern Cape reserve. Hit the golden-sand beaches on the KwaZulu Natal coast, and see The Big Five at the mighty Kruger National Park, a true wildlife winner. Not far from the Kruger is the Panorama Region, great for scenery and a highlight being the impressive Blyde River Canyon. Other highlights include hiking challenging trails in the Eastern Cape and Drakensburg Mountains, and fulfilling safari and game-watching dreams at both Madikwe and Waterberg which are both non-malarial and therefore especially good for families.
Whether you enjoy a fine vintage or not, the Winelands are synonymous with all the great and good that the Cape has to offer. Located east of Cape Town, this lush region delights with Dutch architecture dating back to the 17th century, and lures with plenty of wine estates, off-the-beaten-track vineyards, and fascinating wine tasting tours.
