The “Rainbow Nation” is used to describe the people and cultures living together in South Africa, 1st coined by Archbishop Desmond Tutu. South Africa has come a long way since her first democratic elections in 1994; the pride in this achievement and the enthusiasm for the future is contagious.
South Africa draws more visitors than anywhere else in sub-Saharan Africa. World-class wildlife-watching, cosmopolitan cities like the great big beating heart of Johannesburg, stunning natural panoramas from Table Mountain National Park and vibrant cultures make the country appealing to almost every taste and budget. Geographically, its extremes include the arid semidesert of the Karoo, the snowcapped peaks of the Drakensberg Range, the lush subtropical coast of KwaZulu-Natal and the fertile temperate valleys of Western Cape. Within the space of a day, you can journey from vineyard-clad hillsides in the Western Cape to the vast open spaces of the Kalahari; from waterfront chic in Cape Town to isolated Zulu villages; from elephant-spotting in Kruger National Park to the sublime seascapes of the coast.
A South Africa holiday caters for all, a truly South African safari in 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.
