South Africa Luxury Holidays


Discover South Africa, a World in One Country

South Africa covers an area of well over a million square kilometres of the southern subcontinent, offering visitors a myriad of sites, cultures and experiences.  It is also the ideal hub from which to begin your African adventure to Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Swaziland and further afield to Kenya or Tanzania as well as the idyllic islands of Madagascar, Mauritius, the Seychelles and the Maldives in the Indian Ocean.

South Africa caters for the first time safari experiences as well as repeat safaris for enthusiasts with the Greater Kruger National Park, Timbavati Reserve, Manyeleti Reserve and the Sabi Sands Reserve all located in the northeast of the country and teeming with wildlife.  Should visitors prefer a malaria-free Big Five safari, South Africa is the only region in the world that can accommodate them in no fewer than three primary areas, the Eastern Cape, Madikwe and the Waterberg.

South Africa is an increasingly popular family holiday destination.  This is partly owing to the value for money it offers and partly to the diversity of activities available.  They range from safaris (both land, and to view whales and dolphins, water-based) to horse-riding, scenic hikes and 'extreme sports' such as skydiving and bungee-jumping for the adventurous!  Many hotels and safari lodges are geared accordingly and offer specialised children's programmes and facilities.

Golfers in South Africa are spoilt for choice when it comes to playing on Championship courses around the country.  Greens with spectacular views abound and fees are reasonably priced for the international visitor.  Angling is another of South Africa’s popular sports, there are some 250 species  of freshwater fish and 1500 species of seawater fish in southern Africa.

The variety of available adventure and extreme-sporting activities seem endless!  Some of the best mountain climbing in the world can be found in and around Cape Town.  River experiences range from the mostly scenic to grade five white-water rafting.  South Africa has the highest commercial bungee jump in the world, as well as plenty of scenic abseiling and bridge-swinging, paragliding, helicopter rides, hot-air balloon flights, skydiving and micro-light flights.

With a sparkling coastline, South Africa offers the perfect environment for surfers and kite-surfers, who flock to the beaches to capitalise on the ideal conditions.  Thirty six local beaches currently hold Blue Flag Awards, the international rating and recognition for their environmental, tourist friendly and safety standards.

South Africa is also home to the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site and has a history dating back to the world's earliest peoples.  The country's museums reflect this rich heritage in state-of-the-art facilities and exhibitions.  The Battlefields in KwaZulu-Natal Midlands and Eastern Cape offer a captivating insight into our early colonial history.  Community tours give you an authentic South African experience, and Heritage Sites such as the Apartheid Museum and Robben Island will provide you with a glimpse into South Africa's past and the miracle of our reconciliation.

Let the mystery of South Africa with its ancient landscapes, exotic experiences and friendly people overcome you, explore the ancient secrets of Africa in the Limpopo region and the modern amenities in the country’s capitals, glamorous Johannesburg or cosmopolitan Cape Town. See our map to understand the vast range of vacation options available to you.
