Gaze out over Cape Town from iconic Table Mountain, catch a glimpse of a majestic lion then take an emotional tour through historic battlefields – holidays in South Africa are one of a kind

A holiday in South Africa is the taste of a plum-tinged red from the vines of a world-class winery, or your first sight of a leopard slinking silently through the grass on a game drive at dawn.

It’s a place to experience the kind of wonders you’d never expect to find in one country: whale-watching from your hotel room in Hermanus, internationally famous wineries in the Cape Winelands, vintage train journeys and safaris where you can take a walk on the wild side with Africa’s Big Five in Kruger National Park.

We’ve been to South Africa and we know it well. We can tell you where to find the best afternoon tea in Cape Town, the most postcard-worthy picnic spots in the Winelands and where you can sleep in a treehouse on safari. Get in touch with us and we can help you plan your ultimate South Africa holiday.
