Kruger National Park in South Africa

Places to visit in South Africa

South Africa is one of the continent’s most varied countries, and choosing which places to visit on your trip can be daunting. There are the cities to consider: unmistakable Cape Town, overlooked by its constant companion Table Mountain; and up-and-coming Johannesburg, which has become a hotspot for art galleries and bohemian markets. Big Five safari destinations include Kruger, one of Africa’s oldest and largest national parks, while further days can be spent exploring the history of the Battlefields, chinking glasses in the Winelands or strolling the wild shores of Plettenberg Bay. Our South Africa specialists can help you decide on the best places to go according to your interests.

A safari holiday in South Africa has so much to offer: from safari in places like the Kruger (one of the oldest, largest, and most diverse parks in Africa), to whale watching and visiting legendary battlefields like Rorke’s Drift.
