South Africa is a country on the southernmost tip of the African continent, marked by several distinct ecosystems. Inland safari destination Kruger National Park is populated by big game. The Western Cape offers beaches, lush winelands around Stellenbosch and Paarl, craggy cliffs at the Cape of Good Hope, forest and lagoons along the Garden Route, and the city of Cape Town, beneath flat-topped Table Mountain.
Enjoy the freedom to travel, explore and immerse ourselves in different cultures – here are some ways we think South Africa lets YOU feel free!.
South Africa has an abundance of wildlife and scenery,
from the sandy beaches, sheer, forest-covered cliffs, and amazing marine life of its coastline to arid deserts, peak-filled mountain ranges and open bushveld savannah.
This diversity of habitats is echoed in the country’s peoples and history. The first human inhabitants (the San people) and the powerful civilisations of Mapungubwe and Thulamela of a thousand years ago have given way to a 21st-century country filled with a colourful mixture of people and cultures, a heady history and a natural heritage that has South Africans defining their land as “a world in one country.”
Things to look forward to in South Africa:
- Scuba diving off the east coast in Maputaland
- Viewing wildlife in the Kruger National Park
- Meeting diverse peoples from a variety of ethnic groups
- Climbing Table Mountain or visiting Robben Island
