Top Destinations in South Africa

Johannesburg, South Africa

Johannesburg is also known by its Zulu name 'Egoli', which means 'place of gold'. Rich gold deposits were found in the area in the 19th century and the city quickly grew around the mining industry.

 

Africa's biggest city and South Africa's economic powerhouse, this vibrant and cosmopolitan metropolis is home to many attractions, including the Apartheid Museum and Constitution Hill, and also offers world-class shopping. While many visitors do not expect to be wowed by Johannesburg, most are surprised by the vibrant charm of the city.


Kruger National Park, South Africa


Kruger National Park, SouthAfrica

CapeTown, SouthAfrica

Down at the southern end of Africa, the continent is anchored by this unique city. Rapidly becoming one of the 'must visit' destinations in the world, Cape Town holidays are a hard-to-beat experience.

Garden Route, South Africa


Garden Route, South Africa

South Africa's Garden Route, spread out along the coast like a giant natural theme park, is a rich tapestry of very large trees, freshwater lakes and deep gorges.

 

Whether you're paragliding over sandy white beaches, spotting dolphins and whales from the air or exploring the deep indigenous forests; it's a place where nature rules, and it does so beautifully.

 

While outdoor activities take centre stage on a Garden Route holiday, fine food and drink are always at hand - this is South Africa's oyster capital.


Sun City, South Africa

KwaZulu Nata - Coastline South Africa


KwaZulu Natal, South Africa

From the magnificent peaks of the Drakensberg mountain range, across velvet hills and African bush, to the warm waters of the Indian Ocean - the province of KwaZulu Natal (KZN) has long held the enviable position as the most popular holiday destination for South Africans in search of relaxation and a bit of adventure.

 

On a KwaZulu Natal holiday you can enjoy big game safaris in renowned parks and reserves, learn about South Africa's rich and bloody history at infamous battlefields, experience sensational scuba-diving, surfing or fishing along a 600km coastline, and indulge in gourmet cuisine and luxurious spa treatments in the emerald green hills of the Midlands.


KwaZulu Nata - Battlefields South Africa


KwaZulu Nata - Battlefields South Africa

Some of South Africa's most exciting historical regions lie waiting to be discovered in KwaZulu-Natal, an area better known for its dramatic scenery and quaint towns. This region holds the largest concentration of Anglo-Zulu battlefields in South Africa, and every town, field and hill has a fascinating story to tell.

 

See where the army of the famous British Empire was defeated on several occasions, first by the proud Zulus and later by the impervious Boer armies. Walking the mist-covered plains where thousands of British, Afrikaner and Zulu soldiers lost their lives is a deeply moving experience.


Phinda Private Game Reserve, South Africa


Phinda Private Game Reserve

Phinda Private Game Reserve is situated in subtropical northern KwaZulu-Natal, with close proximity to the warm Indian Ocean. It is an award-winning game reserve with a strong focus on conservation and community involvement. In 1991, Phinda undertook the biggest game relocation in a private reserve in the world at the time, restoring 14 000 hectares (34 600 acres) of degraded farmland to pristine wilderness.

 

Referred to as "Seven Worlds of Wonder", Phinda is home to seven unique ecosystems that can be explored on two-daily game drives from each of the Reserve's six luxurious lodges.


Cape Winelands, South Africa


Cape Winelands, South Africa

The Cape Winelands is a scenically enchanting region. Dramatic mountains and fertile valleys are planted with vines stretching across rolling fields. Here farmers enjoy perfect conditions and produce some of the best wines in the world.

 

The winelands are a wonderful combination of small historic towns, beautiful scenery and wine estates producing delicious wines and brandies. There are literally hundreds of wine estates, all offering the chance to sample their unique blends in a beautiful setting.

 

Stellenbosch is the de facto capital of the Winelands and was the second town to be established by the Dutch settlers. It is very attractive and full of old thatched and whitewashed Cape Dutch buildings and historic national monuments.

 

The wine estates of Stellenbosch are also most impressive, with grand manor houses and beautifully laid out grounds.


Madikwe Game Reserve, South Africa


Madikwe Game Reserve, South Africa

Madikwe Game Reserve, situated adjacent to the Botswana border and only 3 hours' drive from both Johannesburg and Pretoria, is one of South Africa's largest game reserves and best-kept secrets.

 

The reserve is located in South Africa's North-West Province and is today considered one of our country's prime safari destinations.

 

Madikwe is an excellent place for a South Africa safari with magnificent vast plains of open grasslands and woodlands bordered by rugged mountain ranges and rocky hills. Of course, it's only an hour and a half drive from the funfest at Sun City allowing you to get the best of both worlds.

 

Many Travelers stay at Sun City and visit Madikwe Game Reserve for a half-day, however, we believe that you'd need at least a full day, and ideally a couple of nights at this spectacular reserve to fully experience its magic.
