Safaris and Surprises on your South Africa Holiday

Visit South Africa’s renowned tourist attractions, and fall in love with its irresistible beauty. Kruger National Park, in the heart of Lowveld, is a safari paradise. Drive into the central region and watch the lions, leopards, and cheetahs roaming in their natural habitat. The semi-dry northern region, through which the Letaba and the Olifants rivers wind, is home to numerous hippos and an estimate of as much as 9000 elephants. Venture into the far north where you’ll see rare birds such as the helmeted guineafowl, sandstone formations of Mozambique coastal plain, and unusual creatures such as Sharpe’s grysbok (a small, solitary antelope), rainbow killifish (found only in this part of the country), and the Natal red rock hare (mammal species). Don’t miss the park’s southern region, where you’ll find the legendary Ship Mountain amid rare white rhinos.

Take the cable car up to Table Mountain for a spectacular view of Cape Town. Or take a hike and delight in the equally amazing sights of the surrounding Robben Island, Lion’s Head, and Devil’s Peak.

Complete your mountain adventure by sampling the culinary fare offered by Table Mountain Restaurant at the summit. Or enjoy some fine South African wine in the Cableway Cocktail Bar while watching the sun set over Camps Bay as the city lights up for night time.

Other must-sees on your South Africa holiday are the Garden Route on the western coast, V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, and the Cradle of Humankind in Gauteng.
