Seeing our first elephant up close was an amazing experience! The safaris were great - so well organised. Driving through South Africa’s vast mountains and along the coastal routes was wonderful. Such a diverse landscape!

Unmissable things to do in South Africa

There is such a diverse range of things to do on a holiday in South Africa that it’s hard to know where to start. We can tailor-make your holiday to include: wildlife safaris, trekking, horse riding, beach holidays, city sightseeing, wine-tasting . . . Time for an adventure!

When to go to South Africa

You really can come to South Africa at any time. Climate-wise, the Cape & the western half of the country is generally best from about October to March, and KwaZulu Natal & the eastern half is best from March to October. However, that really doesn’t mean you can’t or shouldn’t visit these places at other times. See our more detailed explanation, but better still, call us if you’re unsure when to plan your visit to South Africa.
