Known for its natural beauty, vibrant cities and diverse topography, South Africa is quite unlike anywhere else on the planet. South Africa escorted tours hold many opportunities as you can see the Big 5 in their natural habitat; lions, rhinos, leopards, elephant and buffalo during a game drive, you can tour the Cape Winelands in search of your preferred tipple from over 200 wine producers and you can marvel at the majesty of the iconic Table Mountain on the outskirts of Cape Town.
Whether you’re feeling the spray of the immense Victoria Falls, gaining an insight into the military history of the Boer war in the KwaZulu Natal battlefields, or taking a boat trip to witness the spectacular whale migration that takes places off the South African coast, your experience in this pocket of the globe will be a very welcome assault on the senses.
You’ll see penguins on Boulder’s Bay beach in the shadow of the towering Cape of Good Hope, go on safari in the Kruger National Park and enjoy the bustling cosmopolitan vibe of the V&A Waterfront. Durban and Johannesburg will be explored safely and thoroughly in the company of your personal tour guide and there will be all sorts of local experiences and gourmet cuisine into which you can very pleasurably throw yourself. South Africa is a picturesque and original land.

South Africa Highlights
Kruger National Park, in northeastern South Africa, is one of Africa’s largest game reserves. Its high density of wild animals includes the Big 5: lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalos. Hundreds of other mammals make their home here, as do diverse bird species such as vultures, eagles and storks. Mountains, bush plains and tropical forests are all part of the landscape.
The Garden Route is a 300-kilometre stretch of the south-western coast of South Africa which extends from Mossel Bay in the Western Cape to the Storms River in the Eastern Cape.
Cape Town is a port city on South Africa’s southwest coast, on a peninsula beneath the imposing Table Mountain. Slowly rotating cable cars climb to the mountain’s flat top, from which there are sweeping views of the city, the busy harbor and boats heading for Robben Island, the notorious prison that once held Nelson Mandela, which is now a living museum.
When is the best time to visit South Africa?
South Africa is a year-round destination due to its varying regional climates and wildlife opportunities. The Cape has beautiful hot, dry weather in its summer months between November and February, while the best time to visit for whale watching is between July and November.
