South Africa is one of the most beautiful and varied countries in the world, with a range of landscapes, magnificent natural beauty, a multitude of game reserves and national parks, over 4,000 kilometers of coastline and vibrant cities such as Cape Town and Johannesburg. When looking at the world as one creation, each country displays some form of diversity, and then there is South Africa.

Details

With the crocodiles in the Limpopo River to the penguins waddling on the Cape, South Africa could easily be the definition of diversity. Situated at the southern point of the world's's most majestic continent where the two oceans meet, South Africa is waiting to expose her beauty. There is the forsaken Kalahari, the ever-green Garden Route and the hustle and bustle of wildlife in the Kruger National Park.
For those in search of a different kind of wildlife, they need not look any further then Cape Town's very own Long Street. Explore the epic nightlife of Cape Town in style after enjoying a mouth watering Cape Malay dish. Looking for something to tantalize those taste buds? - Look no further then Durban's Indian area for the best tasting curry. Your trip to South Africa will not be complete until you have had a braai (BBQ), not forgetting a bottle of pinotage produced by the oldest wine industry outside of Europe.
Once you plant your initial footstep on South African soil, you will come across various different terminologies. When you have your first conversation with a South African and they say they'll do something 'just now', it may perhaps mean anything from a couple of minutes, days or even up to a week. Then there is the expression 'now-now", which commonly means a bit more rapidly. We also call our traffic lights; 'Robots'. We are a sociable bunch of people and think nothing of inviting you over for a 'Braai' (BBQ), the day after meeting you.

Tourist Attractions

Wild Coast / Transkei

Take a walk on the wild side as you head for the wild coast of South Africa. The landscape of the Transkei is filled with lonely beaches, lush green hills, cattle and traditional mud huts. This authentic area can offer you much more than ever expected.
Hermanus - Garden Route

Hermanus - Garden Route

Once you are finished having a whale of a time in Hermanus, you can then move along to South Africa's own little paradise - The Garden Route. If walking around one of the many craft markets in Knysna trying to find the perfect African souvenir does not interest you, then why not head to the Knysna harbour and jump aboard a boat to view the Knysna heads.
Durban - Drakensberg

Durban - Drakensberg

When you are overwhelmed with humidity and the smell of freshly chopped spices you know you are in Durban. This city is almost as laid back and calm as its resident jazz musicians. Here you can spend you day on the beach, entertainment parks, shop till you drop and in the evening head out for the most authentic Indian meal of all times. Just a little way from Durban one can find the highest mountain range in Southern Africa - The Drakensberg. This mountain range can be described as dramatic, rolling, rocky, pristine and exceptional, and one has to see it to believe it.
Cape Area

Cape Area

Starting in the mother city, Cape Town has much to offer, such as the flat topped Table Mountain, which is awesme for hiking and providing you with an aerial view of Cape Town. Then there is the pulse of the city - Long Street, which will provide you with all the food and entertainment needed on holiday. If that does not fulfil your holiday needs, the Cape area can provide you with a full day of education, sightseeing, breathe taking views and wine when partaking in a winelands tour. A saying that will forever stick by us Capetonians - You don't need a holiday, You need Cape Town.
