South Africa is known as the "World in One Country" and offers the greatest diversity of scenery and experiences in Africa. From beautiful cities like Capetown with its winery areas, Table Mountain and waterfront, to wilderness areas like Kruger National Park with hundreds of beautifully appointed private lodges nearby to the "land of a thousand hills' in Zululand (Kwa Zulu Natal).
There are activities for everyone including superb shopping, outstanding restaurants, great game viewing in open vehicles, beautiful scenery along the famous Garden route on the south coast east of Cape Town and the widest variety of adventure activities, including shark diving, paragliding, golfing, bush walks and ballooning.
For many years, South Africa has been one of the top best value for money holiday destinations. With the South African Rand being fairly low, it makes South Africa even more attractive to Australian travellers.
South Africa is a country where you really do get the best of both worlds. From cityscapes and panorama routes in Johannesburg to waterfronts and beaches in Cape Town. You’ve got the gorgeous Franschhoek and Stellenbosch winelands, the outstanding safari lodges and incredible wildlife in Kruger, Sabi Sands and the various other national parks and private reserves.
Accommodation in South Africa is world class and probably the best value for money across Africa. Whether it’s 3, 4 or 5 Star lodges, you will definitely not be disappointed by the service, food or experience of your stay.
