South Africa Holidays

As it is home to everything from deserts, woods, and savannahs to mountains, beaches, game reserves, and bustling cities, South Africa is an exhilarating and breathtakingly beautiful destination. It has been called "a world in one country" In conclusion, South Africa is one of the most visually magnificent and diverse nations on earth. However, enjoying South Africa isn't just about taking in the landscape and wildlife, the excitement is in interacting with it.

Enjoy sampling the world-class vintages made in the Cape Winelands. Take a cable car ride up Table Mountain and experience the awesome views over Cape Town. Explore the Garden Route with its infinite list of experiences along the way. Visit Boulders Beach, which is the only location in the world where you can see African Penguins up close.

What makes a great escape to South Africa?

  • With its diverse choice of national parks and reserves, enjoy a holiday of a lifetime incorporating your bespoke safari.
  • Discover Cape Town’s history and culture on a private walking tour and visit Robben Island , the notorious prison that once held Nelson Mandela, which is now a museum.
  • Take some time to yourself and go surfing, kayaking, fishing, horseback riding, whale watching, or, if you dare, shark diving at Plettingberg Bay.
  • Travel through South Africa on the beautifully restored carriages of Rovos Rail on your way to Kruger National Park.
  • Hire a car and tour around the peninsula with its meandering coastal roads visiting different bays and coastal regions.
  • Visit Johannesburg to experience its rich history. Visit the Apartheid Museum and Soweto to compare the living conditions there to those in the leafy area of Houghton.
