Our South Africa highlights
Cape Town, where mountain meets beach, is constantly voted as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is a cosmopolitan melting pot of activities but at the same time manages to exude a completely laid-back atmosphere making time almost stand still.
Johannesburg, or Jozi as it is affectionately called, is the vibrant heart of the South Africa. Often bypassed, this eclectic City of Gold has plenty of worthwhile attractions that warrant a stopover of more than an overnight.
Lying on the Eastern seaboard is the city of Durban. Warm and inviting, its mild climate gives way to a host of outdoor experiences. The rich Indian heritage coupled with the Zulu culture add the spice to this exuberant metropolis.
The Kruger National Park is synonymous with wildlife and has deservingly become a destination in its own right. But what truly sets South Africa apart is the sheer number and quality of National Parks and Private Game Reserves to be found throughout the country.
The Pilanesberg National Park, Madikwe Game Reserve and the private reserves in the Eastern Cape are all malaria free, which make them popular for families wanting a safari in South Africa. From a scenic standpoint alone, the Winelands, Garden Route, Drakensberg Mountains and the Panoramic Route are all picture-postcard worthy. But, delve a little deeper and you will be delighted by the variety of fun and interesting things to see and do as you marvel at the natural beauty of this land.
