South Africa is the kind of destination that will touch all of your senses in a myriad of ways. Our incredible diversity is a key attraction - from the deserts of the Kgalagadi to the lush green forests of Tsitsikamma to the unspoilt beaches of the Wild Coast to the vibrant nightlife of Cape Town - we really do have it all.

South Africa is mercurial in nature, one moment you’ll be exploring the origins of ancient man, the next cage-diving with Great White Sharks and then drinking traditional beer in a lively township shebeen. In true African spirit, we understand the value of a warm South African welcome, and we can't wait to welcome you to our Rainbow Nation.

South Africa truly is a ground-breaking destination for explorers and adventurers who want to experience life in all its fullness. We're a destination that allows you to scratch below the surface and experience endless possibilities, and to walk away the richer for having been here. And South Africa prides itself for offering great value for money which means you can get a great deal.
