South Africa is among the world’s premier safari destinations, home to the Big 5 and famous wilderness reserves like Kruger National Park. Here, trained rangers introduce you to big game in the wild - lions and rhinos, elephants and leopards, and a wealth of bird life. But outdoor life in South Africa extends far beyond its wildlife reserves. Magnificent landscapes and a stunning coastline give rise to a range of nature-based activities. Spot whales and dolphins at the southern tip of the country, or make your way to the beautiful wine region, with rolling vineyards and wonderful tasting experiences. Explore the arid landscape of the Kalahari or hike the dramatic Cederberg mountains.
South Africa has much on offer for the culture enthusiast as well, whether it’s the vibrant city life of Cape Town or the laid-back vibe of coastal hamlets along the Garden Route. The country’s history is tumultuous, and museums in Johannesburg and other cities preserve much of this legacy. We’ll take you from the great outdoors to the finest offerings of city life here in South Africa.
