South Africa - Map

South Africa has so much to offer travellers no matter where their interests lie – wine regions, wildlife, golf, iconic train rides, beautiful landscapes and coast, wonderful drives, sophisticated towns and cities with fantastic restaurants, great museums and so much more…

The Cape

Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, dominated by dramatic mountains, beaches and oceans.  It never fails to impress.  The Cape has something for everyone, being malaria free, it is perfect for families and with only a two hour time difference from the UK and overnight flights, you could even just go for a long weekend.

Activities are plentiful.  For the more adventurous, hike up (or take the cable car) to the top of Table Mountain, go horse-riding, deep-sea fishing, paragliding or sailing to name a few.  For those who enjoy a slower pace, why not visit the resident penguins at Boulders Beach, go whale watching, take a tour of Robben Island (where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated), stroll through Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden, sample wines at the vineyards, relax on the beautiful beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay, or just eat out with friends at one of the city’s many world class restaurant.

From Cape Town, a drive to the vineyards takes only 45 minutes and there are several beautiful wine routes that can be followed, notably around Paarl, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.READ MORE
