South Africa is a land of multiples. Flanked by the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, its borders encompass large varieties of climate conditions and landscapes, from the Mediterranean climate of the south and west to subtropical humidity in Kwazulu-Natal, from the semi-desert of the Karoo to the forested Garden Route and impressive Cape mountains.
The country’s heterogeneous nature further extends to its many species of wildlife and its people, containing a rich assortment of cultural and linguistic diversity. South Africa’s many different destinations allow for a wide range of tourism, catering for city holidays, golf tours, as well as desert vistas, beach holidays and world-class safaris.
South Africa is one of the most exciting travel destinations in the world. From the spectacular vista of Cape Town from Table Mountain to the golden beaches of the East Coast; from the endless savannah plains of the Kruger Park to the lush forests of the Garden Route, this is a country that, once visited, will be impossible to forget.
