South Africa holidays
South Africa is one of the most popular safari and holiday destinations on the African continent. With easy access from the UK and a good travel infrastructure and facilities, South Africa offers a huge variety of accommodation and regions to suit all manner of travellers, including families, honeymooners, hikers, birdwatchers, wine tasters, horse riders and has a range of choices for self drive, adventure travel, luxury lodge and boutique hotels, stunning beaches, city culture, wine tours and of course safaris.
It is the country's extraordinary diversity that makes it so attractive, encapsulating so much of what the continent has to offer, and thereby making South Africa a perfect choice for an African safari or holiday. We can tailor make your South Africa holiday to suit your requirements, mixing and matching the best choice of hotels and activities to fit with you.
There are over 300 game reserves and national parks, making it possible to search out specific animal species or to get an overview of the natural world. You can chose to stay in luxury safari lodges or budget national parks accommodation. It is even possible to choose a reserve in a malaria-free zone.
There are cosmopolitan cities, world renowned vineyards, and stunning beaches on the Cape, and the picturesque Garden Route which follows the coast between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. Add to this a melting pot of different cultures, with tribal heritage and traditions from distinctive peoples like the Zulu, and South Africa becomes a great place for a holiday, whatever your interests.
The two small countries of Swaziland and Lesotho can also be easily included in a visit here, adding another dimension to an already varied South African safari holiday or honeymoon.
