‘Once in a lifetime’ is a tired cliche, but what else can you say about a country like South Africa? A place so diverse it encompasses every possible landscape, from bustling cities such as Cape Town to stark deserts, majestic mountains, forests and, of course, stunning coastlines. South Africa is often referred to as a world in one country, and it’s not hard to see why. There’s more to this incredible country than game reserves (although, they have those too). Our holiday packages are the ideal way to make the most of your Africa adventure. The Western Cape is an excellent place to begin your holiday and is home to the Garden Route, aka the ultimate road trip. From here, Addo Elephant National Park is easily accessible. If you plan to head north, Kruger National Park is also a must visit, because no Africa tours are complete without experiencing the thrill of sitting in a Land Rover while a herd of elephants cruises past. It’s the kind of core memory that will stick with you a lifetime. Talk to our team of South Africa Travel Experts today to start planning your adventure today.

When you're packing for a trip to South Africa, don't forget the essentials like your passport, visa, phone, chargers, camera, sunscreen, some ZAR and the correct power adaptor.

South Africa has a treasure trove of places just waiting to be explored. City dwellers can mince through the streets of Cape Town and Johannesburg and experience urban life in Africa. Animal enthusiasts and adventure lovers should head out to Kruger National Park and keep their eyes peeled for the Big Five, while beach lovers can migrate to Durban and Gqeberha for scenic beauty. Finally, those led by their taste buds must visit Stellenbosch, home to outstanding wineries and galleries.

South Africa is an ideal year-round destination, however, those looking to fill their camera roll with animal pics should visit between May and October, which offer perfect wildlife-viewing weather. Bird watchers may want to visit a little later, between November and February, as the rain welcomes more opportunities to see exotic birds. Finally, those looking to catch a wave should say 'cowabunga' to a South African holiday between March and September, when the waves are at their peak.
