To journey to the Rainbow Nation of South Africa is to venture into a ‘world in one country’ of colours, landscapes, languages, cultures and wildlife that is sure to captivate. The sheer size of the country means the habitat varies from thick coastal forests to dry sandy deserts and everything in between. Although at the very tip of the continent, it still shares international borders with six African countries and is nestled between both Atlantic and Indian Oceans. South Africa’s charms are certainly magnetic and have been so for thousands of years, encompassing historic battlegrounds, cosmopolitan cities and iconic scenery, which makes it one of the world’s most beguiling and popular destinations for exploration.
Due to its scenic and cultural diversity, plus some of the best wildlife viewing anywhere in Africa, South Africa has something to offer every type of visitor. Be it wildlife viewing, wine tasting, beach relaxation or cultural interaction, there is something to please all tastes. If your main aim is to swim with penguins on Boulders Beach or walk with lions in the Kruger National Park, we can put you in the right place at the right time to maximise your enjoyment of your South Africa safari holiday. With 11 official languages, South Africa is rich in culture, supporting several tribes including the mighty Zulus of the east coast. You will also experience one of the friendliest and most welcoming nations in Africa and are bound to be greeted with broad smiles everywhere you go. Generally the weather on the east coast is tropical with hot summers and mild winters with most of the rain falling between October and March. Cape Town, with its enticing mix of modern vibrancy and fascinating history, is almost opposite to this with warm dry summers and cold wet winters, and the areas around the Kruger National Park are generally the same as Durban with less humidity in the air.
