South Africa Safari Holidays

South Africa Safari Holidays have a lot to offer the Africa Safari traveler. On a South Africa holiday you can experience South African safaris in the Kruger National Park, fabulous African beach holidays along the coast, and gourmet fare in the cosmopolitan and breathtakingly beautiful Cape Town – not to mention our great range of South Africa family holidays in this family-friendly destination.

A South Africa holiday caters for all: tropical coastlines and arid deserts; carpets of dazzling daisies and Big Five safaris; proud tradition and first-class infrastructure – all these elements make South Africa a perfect holiday destination.

Mountains, Beaches & Safari Holidays

Hike through dramatic mountains in the Drakensberg, relax on a soft stretch of sand overlooking the Indian Ocean, or taste award-winning wine on the vine-covered patios of elegant Cape Winelands estates.

South Africa accommodation is as unique and varied as its landscape; stay in an affordable safari lodge in a top big game reserve, a private Cape Town villa on the slopes of Table Mountain, an upmarket guest house in vibey Johannesburg or a KwaZulu Natal lodge overlooking footprint-free beaches or historic battlefields.

If you have a taste for adventure, South Africa holidays offer everything adrenaline junkies would crave. Diving with great white sharks, river rafting on the Fish River and the highest bungee jump in the world on the Garden Route are just some of the heart-pumping South Africa holiday activities.

A Rainbow Nation Holiday

It was Archbishop Desmond Tutu who coined the phrase “the Rainbow Nation” to describe the melting pot of people and cultures living together in South Africa.

South Africa has come a long way since her first democratic elections in 1994; the pride in this achievement is palpable and the enthusiasm for the future is contagious. Let the friendly local people teach you about the country that they love.

Tailor-made South Africa tours – such as our popular affordable Cape Town, Winelands & Kruger safari – are an excellent way of combining the country’s holiday highlights.
