South Africa is one of Africa’s most visited countries, and for good reason. It is a land of natural and cultural diversity that offers something for every kind of visitor.

Cape Town is a cultural hub. Climb the iconic Table Mountain for a view of the city and sea; visit the colourful Bo-kaap Muslim quarter; wander the bustling waterfront; and drink fantastic local wines in Stellenbosch and Paarl. Johannesburg in the north also offers cultural marvels such as tours of Nelson Mandela’s house in Soweto and the Apartheid Museum.

South Africa has a plethora of natural wonders, including Kruger National Park which is home to the Big Five African animals – lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo and rhino. See the rolling dunes and ostrich on the East Cape; explore the wild coast of Transkye; cruise the river with hippo and crocodiles in St Lucia; hit the beach and surf in Durban; go spelunking in the Cango Caves; or go cage diving with the world’s biggest great white sharks off the southern coast.
