South Africa Holiday Destinations
With iconic Table Mountain in Cape Town and pristine sandy white beaches, coastal holidays have so much to offer. A self drive adventure along the famous Garden Route is a photographers dream. A trip to Cape Town would not be complete without visiting the Cape Winelands, famous for their exquisite world class wineries.
Heading inland to Overberg you’ll hit the Whale Coast. The area offers whale watching that is unsurpassed the world over to see southern right whales. Inland South Africa is also the location of the Klein Karoo, home to the Cango Caves – 20 million + years of natural beauty, as well as Mpumalanga where the oldest caves are at 2,000 million years, and home to the only green canyon.
Safari means Kruger National Park. Those looking for real “Africa” will be thrilled to see the Big Five and so many other animals living in harmony and completely at home in the Lowveld. Madikwe safaris offer the best of safari living mixed with perfect conservation efforts. Also home to all manner of large cats and creatures, it’s one of South African safaris best.
Areas outside South Africa have their own special appeal. Victoria Falls, also referred to as Mosi-oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders) is the world’s largest curtain of falling water in the world. The sprays can be seen as far as 30km away, and have been known to create the most intense and beautiful rainbows. Not to be outdone by a giant waterfall, the island of Mauritius east of Madagascar offers luxurious and extravagant lodgings, as well as a hut on the beach. Forge a path and find a beach area that is all your own.
