Travel to South Africa

Join rangers and voyagers in the African continent’s best safari destination, where wildlife roams among the golden-sand plains, stunning beaches and mountain ranges.

 

A slice of heaven for travellers with an overwhelming admiration for nature, South Africa is home to over 20 National Parks to explore with Kruger National Park and Addo Elephant National Park being the most popular for wildlife.

 

This country is one of Africa’s top visited countries with good reason. Not only can you embark on a wildlife safari spotting lions, leopards, and elephants - you can hang at a beach surrounded by penguins in Cape Town (Boulders Beach), go shark cage diving with Great Whites in Gansbaai for a serious adrenalin rush, and indulge in the iconic Braai (BBQ) that’s so flavourful and tasty!

 

Known as the Rainbow Nation, there are 11 official languages so you can only imagine the cultural diversity this country has to offer. It’s truly fascinating to witness so many unique cultures, religions, and traditions all intertwined together. 

 

A wildlife wonderland bursting with beauty and warmth, South Africa is nothing short of exhilarating for any traveller!

November - February (summer) is your chance to embrace the beautiful hot and dry weather and a visit to South Africa’s stunning beaches is a must.
