Hand-crafted Travel to South Africa

Often described as a continent in a country, South Africa is a wonderfully diverse destination. The Rainbow Nation has it all: world-class wines, food that competes on an international scale, huge nature reserves and spectacular wildlife you can enjoy on safari tours. It’s also the perfect springboard to combine with a trip to other African safari destinations.

  • Discover the fine food of cosmopolitan Cape Town and the iconic views of Table Mountain for a classic South Africa family experience.
  • Travel to the Kalahari savanna for big game with one of our safari packages, and spot the iconic lions and leopards in the Kruger during a South Africa luxury safari.
  • Take a helicopter to spot the whales of De Hoop on the Whale Coast, and explore South Africa’s beaches for wildlife and watersports.
  • Tour the Winelands for some of South Africa’s luxurious landscapes and unbeatable vintages.

Our Africa specialists, Felix and Matt have created a guide to the regions of South Africa and what types of experiences you can expect to find.

Kruger National Park

The largest game reserve in South Africa, the Kruger National Park is larger than Israel. Nearly 2 million hectares of land that stretch for 352 kilometres (20 000 square kilometres) from north to south along the Mozambique border, is given over to an almost indescribable wildlife experience. Certainly, it ranks with the best in Africa and is the flagship of the country’s national parks – rated as the ultimate safari experience.

The Winelands

When visiting the Western Cape, exploring the Winelands is an absolute must. South Africa’s wine industry is one of the largest in the world dating back to the 17th century and the wineries are incredibly picturesque welcoming visitors for tasting with open arms.

Cape Town

An unbeatable balance of exquisite natural beauty and year-round activities make Cape Town an easy city to fall in love with. Awash with variety, from sandy beaches to mountain hiking trails, national parks to vibrant shopping areas. First-class restaurants, interesting galleries and luxury boutique hotels. Cape Town will appeal to just about anyone in the mood for a holiday. It’s a perfect stop for honeymooners, families and adventure lovers.
