Often described as a world in one country, South Africa certainly is big enough to cover all bases: from snowy mountains to dusty deserts; cosmopolitan cities to charming little dorps; and from beautiful beaches to wildlife-rich game reserves. Anchored at the base of the African continent, South Africa is perhaps its most diverse country and is home to some of Africa’s most iconic characters, destinations and experiences. Starting in the south with Africa’s favourite city, the incomparable Cape Town, this country encompasses classic holiday destinations such as the coastal towns, forests and lakes of the Garden Route, the long subtropical Indian Ocean coast of KwaZulu-Natal plus dozens of wildlife-packed reserves including the world-famous Kruger National Park. And with a range of accommodation as varied as these magnificent landscapes plus a sophisticated and extensive infrastructure network, getting around South Africa is simple you can easily self-drive from your beachfront accommodation on the Garden Route to child-friendly lodges in the Eastern Cape’s Big 5 game reserves or fly from a stylish suite in a private Kruger reserve to the exclusive boutique hotels of Cape Town.
