Explore this extraordinary and diverse land on your South Africa holiday

Many first-time visitors make a beeline for the Cape, the Garden Route and Kruger National Park, and with good reason, but this amazing land rewards a longer-than-usual stay, giving you a chance to enjoy less well-known adventures such as the scenery and battlefields of KwaZulu Natal and the fascinating blend of cultures in Gauteng.
