Whether you’re a nature lover or a foodie, South Africa has something for everyone. The country boasts world-class national parks, incredible food, diverse wildlife, beaches and more.

The city of Cape Town is a microcosm of the country’s diversity. It’s the perfect combination of modern and traditional, a fusion of European and African cultures.

Kruger National Park

The largest game reserve in Africa, Kruger is home to the ‘Big Five’ (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo) as well as hundreds of other mammals and bird species.

The dry winter season between May and September is the optimum time to visit Kruger Park. Temperatures are moderate and vegetation is sparse, which makes it easier to spot animals.

In addition to wildlife, the park is also renowned for its archaeological sites and rock art. Visitors will find countless ancient treasures that tell of man’s interaction with the Lowveld over many centuries.

Cape Town

Cape Town is a beautiful city surrounded by mountains and the ocean. It has a thrilling blend of cultures, history and nature.

One of the best ways to explore Cape Town is to hop on a tour. You can experience the city’s most famous attractions, as well as learn more about its past and culture.

Cape Town


Johannesburg, or Jozi as locals call it, is a city of striking contrasts. Here, leafy suburbs of high-walled mansions sit side by side with sprawling shanty towns.

History buffs should head to the Apartheid Museum, which traces the nation's turbulent past; Constitution Hill, where Nelson Mandela spent time in jail; and the Hector Pieterson Memorial and Museum.



Pretoria is a beautiful city that offers a variety of activities and attractions. Its historical background is impressive and it has a clean and well-kept environment.

Pretoria is a very multicultural city. Its people are mostly Afrikaans but there are many other languages and ethnic groups that live here.

Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park

Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, the oldest game reserve in South Africa is a must visit for any wildlife lover. It is home to the Big Five and offers guests a unique mix of bushveld, mist-belt forests, open savannahs and wetlands.

The park is also famous for its conservation efforts, including 'Operation Rhino' and 'Lion Project'. It is now home to the world's largest population of white rhinos.

Pilanesberg National Park

Only three hours' drive from Johannesburg, Pilanesberg National Park offers the perfect opportunity to escape city lights and discover a world of adventure.

It is home to one of the world's most unique geological phenomena, the 'Pilanesberg Alkaline Ring Complex', which forms part of a vast extinct volcanic crater.

The reserve is known for its abundant wildlife, including the Big Five and more than 300 bird species. It's also home to a number of rare animals such as the cheetah and sable antelope.

Sun City

Originally built in the crater of an extinct volcano, Sun City offers guests a whole smorgasbord of activities and features. It boasts two world class golf courses, a water park and safari parks, as well as restaurants, bars, casinos and live shows.

It's also home to an impressive variety of animals. The Kwena Gardens Crocodile Sanctuary and Predator World provide a great insight into the amazing creatures that are native to Africa.


Durban is South Africa’s third largest city and one of the country’s most thriving and popular tourist destinations. It is a remarkably multicultural place, with a population that includes Zulus (who make up the majority); Indians; British descendants; and Boers.

You can explore the city’s heritage and culture by touring the streets with a guide. Sample Afro-Indian dishes like bunny chow and Bombay crush; uncover a bit of apartheid history; or head to the up-and-coming Glenwood district to check out some of the contemporary galleries.

Umhlanga Beach

With a beautiful beach, promenade and some of South Africa's most upmarket hotels Umhlanga is a popular destination for holidays. Here families, singles and honeymooners can enjoy outdoor and indoor activities to keep them entertained while relaxing on the beaches.

There's a wide range of restaurants, shopping centres and cultural attractions to choose from as well. But if you want to experience some of the region's best natural beauty, then head to Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park.

Garden Route

One of South Africa's most breathtaking routes, the Garden Route stretches along the country's western coast and is home to some of the most stunning landscapes in the world.

The Garden Route features a diverse collection of lagoons, forests, mountains, beaches and farms. With plenty of exciting outdoor activities and luxurious hotels and spas, it's a perfect destination for families, romantic honeymooners and adventure-seekers alike.
