The country’s sophisticated infrastructure network enables you to effortlessly combine a visit to the world-renowned Kruger National Park or the Madikwe Game Reserve on the edge of the Botswana border with a relaxing break to Cape Town and the Winelands.

Whether you wish to view game, experience the African culture, be pampered, have an adventure or play golf, South Africa offers something for everyone’s taste.

  • CAPE TOWN

    Cape Town is the quintessential melting pot – it is a city alive with creativity, colour, sounds and tastes.

    While walking through the city’s streets and meeting its people, you will fall in love with its natural beauty, creative freedom and incredible spirit. Cape Town is a city where the unexpected is always just around the corner and the beautiful province of the Western Cape lies ready to be explored across the city border.

    Cape Town’s most distinctive feature is its stunning setting – it lies on a dramatic coastline of pristine white beaches and icy waters, overlooked by the iconic flat-topped Table Mountain. This multifaceted city has a habit of making people fall in love with it. For some, it could be the view of Camps Bay and the glistening ocean as you crest Kloof Nek that’s the draw, for others the sound of the muezzin’s call to prayer wafting over Bo Kaap on a misty morning, the smell of a fresh espresso at the Neighbour goods Market in gritty Woodstock, the sensation of sand between the toes while walking with penguins on Boulder’s Beach and for some, it is simply the taste of aromatic spices as you dig into a midnight samosa from a roadside stall on Long Street.
