Plan my trip

Diverse and dramatic, this rainbow nation offers a world of experiences. 

Gemsbok in Western Cape, South AfricaOccupying the entirety of the continent’s southern tip, South Africa certainly does things on a grand scale. Head out on safari in search of the Big Five, tour the sun-soaked vineyards of the Cape, or cruise the Garden Route on a self-drive tour. Should the mood take you, your trip could veer from penguin spotting to wine tasting, to surfing, to safari and back again. 

With such a diversity of landscapes and habitats, South Africa is often referred to as the ‘World in one country’. Dramatic mountain ranges give way to vast savannahs and deserts to the north, two ample coastlines stretch 3,000km around both the Indian and the Atlantic oceans, while the monumental setting of Cape Town helps to create one of the world’s most exciting cities. South Africa really does have it all, so prepare to be bowled over.
