South Africa

About South Africa

South Africa is located at the southern tip of Africa and is bordered by Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Swaziland and Lesotho (which is completely surrounded by South Africa). It is a heady mix of third and first world cultures with a wide variety of experiences to explore. You can choose from watching the Big Five in one of the world’s largest national parks to relaxing on one of the blue flag beaches or, surfing at some of the best super tubes. You can watch whales doing acrobatics at the world’s whale watching capital or come up close and personal with great whites. Alternatively, you can take part in any of the endless adrenalin pumping adventure sports that South Africa has to offer.

Just a 45-minute drive from Cape Town and you’re in the mountains and valleys of the Winelands. The old estate houses are built in the attractive Cape Dutch style and there are plenty opportunities for sampling the vintages. South Africa’s principal wineland region is the area around Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl, also known as the ‘Boland,’ which means ‘Upland,’ referring to the dramatic mountain ranges on whose slopes some of the vineyards are situated. It is here in the Winelands that you'll find health spas, golf courses, wine farms, restaurants, museums, nature reserves, business hubs and conference centres.

Situated on the south-western tip of Africa, the Western Cape is the meeting point of the cold Atlantic Ocean and the warm Indian Ocean. It is a picture-perfect location with an unparalleled diversity of landscapes and adventures ready to be experienced. It is home to Cape Town, which is dominated by the flat-topped Table Mountain, magnificent beaches, beautiful winelands, world-class restaurants and cosmopolitan entertainment venues.
