WHY TRAVEL HERE?
The ‘Rainbow Nation’ is a magnet for travellers for many reasons. Cape Town is widely regarded as one of the top tourist capitals in the world, with its scenic mountains, world-class winelands and restaurants, great range of beaches and a myriad of activities, like whale watching, to enjoy.
The Kruger National Park tops the ‘Big Five’ parks in South Africa for superb game viewing and is easily accessible by regular scheduled & private charter flights. The Drakensberg offer spectacular mountain scenery, hiking and San/Bushman rock art, while the country has a vast choice of top beaches along the Garden Route, Eastern Cape & the Maputaland Marine Reserve several hours north of Durban in the Isimangaliso (formerly St Lucia) Wetland Park.
Having eight World Heritage Sites in its fold, South Africa also enjoys, on average, 50 sunny hours per week, and has excellent world-class facilities in terms of lodges & hotels, competitive car hire and well-kept roads to self-drive, in addition to a well-priced network of internal flights to most major cities & hot spots like Kruger NP .
