South Africa lies at the southernmost point of the mighty African continent and is quite simply one of the most breathtaking places in the world. For holidaymakers and tourists, the country offers some of the most diverse experiences and landscapes all within the same country borders. It may sound clichd, but there really is so much to see and do in South Africa. For those who love dramatic scenery and fantastic wildlife, a trip to the “Rainbow Nation” will be absolutely unforgettable!
However, South Africa isn’t just about going on safari (although this often once in a lifetime opportunity to see these amazing creatures up close and personal shouldn’t be missed), there are some fantastic cities to visit such as Pretoria in the north east, Johannesburg a touch further south, Durban over on the east coast and of course the majestic Cape Town in the south west. So, as well as all the adventures, there is also plenty of opportunity to unwind with some shopping or lapping up the sun on one of the many spectacular beaches.
There are many different holiday types and ways in which you can explore this great nation, including package holidays at beach resorts and city breaks. However, if you really want to see the best of the country in just one holiday or trip, then South Africa escorted tours will ensure that you don’t miss any of the highlights.
South Africa Safari Holidays – Of course many people travelling to South Africa will be looking for that authentic African experience that is the safari and South Africa really doesn’t disappoint in this regard. There are a variety of ways in which you can enjoy your safari experience. It can be the main event of your holiday in which you might stay in a safari lodge or hotel for the duration of your stay, or it could just be part of a bigger package which might also include time at the beach and in the city. Perhaps the most obvious place for your South African safari is Kruger National Park which covers more than 7000 square miles. Here you get the chance not only to see the stunning landscapes but all those animals you have only ever seen on the TV or in a zoo before.
Other escorted tours to South Africa could take you on a journey from Johannesburg all the way down to Cape Town, making stops along the way to sample some of most beautiful places on earth such as Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route (an amazing stretch of coastline) and Storms River, as well as Port Elizabeth. You might also take in sights between Knysna and Montagu before you arrive in Cape Town.
Cape Town Highlights – There are far too many amazing places in and around Cape Town to list them all but a few to add your list could be: Table Mountain – you certainly can’t miss it if you are in South Africa but you may want to enjoy a closer experience and enjoy the views from the top. Kirstenbosch Gardens, the penguins at Boulders Beach, Robben Island and perhaps for the more adventurous, shark cage diving!
