South Africa… a destination appealing to all the senses, a world in one country, filled with a rich diverse cultural history, breath-taking landscapes, views and an abundance of wildlife. The vastness and diversity of this beautiful destination requires careful itinerary planning ensuring that the highlights are not missed.
Johannesburg: South Africa’s mega city and economic powerhouse, offers the visitor a unique experience with a multitude of attractions from visiting a traditional cultural village to fine dining in some of the many high end restaurants on offer.
If it’s shopping you’re after then Sandton City has to be on your itinerary. Johannesburg or Jozi as fondly referred to by locals, is the hub of the fashion industry and boasts an abundance of exclusive boutiques and fashion houses. Lose yourself in the many exclusive shops and end off your day being pampered at a relaxing Spa.
Mpumalanga: An hour’s flight from Jozi takes you to South Africa’s World famous Kruger National Park and to some of the best private game lodges in the world. Expect to see spectacular wildlife and dramatic scenery. The Kruger National Park teems with wildlife from giraffes nibbling on Acacia leaves, a herd of buffalo crossing the road right in front of you, elusive big cats enjoying a spot of shade and fish eagles letting out their distinctive call – Here the African bush will capture your heart and soul.
Durban: South Africa’s tourist mecca and an important economic coastal city offers a melting pot of cultures and exquisite beaches. If it’s sun and sea you’re after then Ballito Bay or the seafront promenade is the place to see and be seen. Be amazed by extraordinary beach sculptures and catch a glimpse of a pod of Bottlenose Dolphins on the horizon. If you’re after a bit of spice in your life then be sure to experience Durban’s culinary delight, the Bunny Chow.
The Garden Route: For those seeking a little adventure, the Garden Route would be your ideal destination. Sip on Champagne on the deck of your very own private houseboat in Knysna or indulge in some South Africa’s largest oysters. Take a leisurely drive through Tsitsikamma National Park and enjoy the most spectacular views or (if you’re feeling a little brave) experience the views from a different angle by ziplining through the forest’s canopies.
Cape Town: The jewel in the South African crown, affectionately known to South Africans as the Mother City, offers travelers the full array of pleasures from adventure to 5 Star dining and luxurious hotels. Become a wine connoisseur and journey through the Cape Winelands or take a cable car up one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Table Mountain.
Whichever of the many facets of South Africa you explore, you will find yourself coming back for more.
