‘A world in one country’ – as if cosmopolitan cities, a warm sunny climate and 2000 miles of beautiful beaches weren’t enough, 90 percent of visitors come to South Africa for the wildlife and unspoilt landscape.

"Whether it’s the people, the spectacular wildlife, the superb food or the wonderful wines, we defy anyone not to fall in love with South Africa, more fondly known as ‘the rainbow nation’."

With some of the most upbeat, welcoming and humorous people you’ll find anywhere in the world, and a cultural melting pot that’s as wide-ranging as its vibrant cities, unrivalled natural beauty and never-ending vistas, South Africa has to be one of the world’s most fascinating destinations.

The bustle of Johannesburg contrasts sharply with the fun-loving seaside ambience of Durban and the Euro-chic vibe of Cape Town, while in between are the magnificent game reserves, quaint towns and coastal resorts. And then there’s the Garden Route, famed for its pretty towns, superb seafood and amazing whale-watching; and the Cape Winelands, home not only to some of the world’s best wines but also some of its finest restaurants.
