Introducing South Africa

Swarthy savannas, golden beaches, jagged mountain ranges, and plentiful nature reserves are just a few of South Africa's noteworthy attractions. Cape Winelands, studded with colonial mansions and covered with rows after rows of vineyards, rivals the best in the world when it comes to fine wine, while the Rhebok Trail is chockablock with Instagram-worthy highlights. If you are planning for a personalized South Africa trip, you have so many places you can cover.

Feel free to contact our local travel experts to design your own customized tour to South Africa.

When to go to South Africa

South Africa is a year-round destination with diverse regional climate conditions. Many travelers find it best to explore South Africa between May and September when the weather is cool. These months are also ideal for big game viewing. The country receives a fair bit of rain between November to February, but this is when birdwatchers descend in droves on its national parks for sightings of rare avian species. Learn more.

How long to stay in South Africa

Do not miss the chance to chase penguins at Boulders Beach and experience wine tasting in Stellenbosch if you have seven days to spare. Anything lesser than that, and you will be forced to make sacrifices, so we suggest you spend at least ten days in South Africa. This is just the right amount of time to get under the skin of the country, sample its unique cuisine and world-class wine, and maybe even tick the Big Five off your bucket list without exhausting yourself. Learn more.

Must-visit destinations in South Africa

Having taken in the sights and sounds of Cape Town, head to Kruger National Park for an ultimate wildlife safari experience. A drive through the Panorama Route is a rite of passage for anyone who claims that they have set their foot in the country. The Drakensberg, whose 10,000-foot basalt peaks beckon travelers from all over the world, is a must for those who wish to soak up the raw, unvarnished beauty of South Africa, while the untamed wilderness hidden beneath the waters of False Bay offers unparalleled glimpses of the marine life off the country’s coast.
