South Africa is internationally recognised as one of the top African holiday destinations. This is due to a myriad of reasons notwithstanding English being the most widely spoken language. It’s also a pastime favourite of UK, German & American visitors.
South Africa is fortuitous as its home to the world famous Kruger National Park and other top private Game Reserves where the Big 5 are found in abundance. The Garden Route is a spectacular drive that winds its way from George down to Cape Town. The reason it’s so popular is the multitude of scenic fauna and flora that lines the coastline where white beaches marry with the deep blue Atlantic Ocean. There are charming towns such as Plettenberg Bay and Knysna to visit, two of the most popular holiday choices of South Africans and tourists alike.
Regardless of age Cape Town is an unmissable destination. The first world city hums with vibrant energy, where restaurant hopping, winelands visits, beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay and a hike to Table Mountain are on the cards. A short drive will take you into the heart of Stellenbosch and Franshoek known for their fine dining restaurants overlooking lush green vineyards.
