Escape to the Cape
Stay in Cape Town to enjoy its fine climate and explore its magnificent heritage and the stunning Winelands area and perhaps reach the ‘Cape of Good Hope’
South Africa is a country of incredible scenic, climatic and cultural contrasts, where travellers can enjoy unspoilt landscapes, explore world-renowned game reserves and uncover a colourful colonial and African history. There are many areas of this great nation to explore, each contributing to the bigger picture that you’ll take away with you.
As with much of Africa, the animal kingdom is a big draw and important to visitors and South Africans as well. Kruger National Park is renowned as one of the largest and best managed game reserves in the world, with over 700 species of birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibian, as well as the iconic Big Five: elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard. The iSimangaliso Wetland Park is a great natural wetland, offering a natural home to wonderful birdlife, hippos and crocodiles.
On the eastern side of the country is landlocked, independent Eswatini (formerly Swaziland), one of Africa’s best kept secrets. Venture here and you’ll discover grand mountains, lush forests, fertile valleys and the beat of the African lowveld.
From the historic Mount Nelson and Company Gardens to Robben Island and the iconic Table Mountain, the treasures of South Africa are abundant and amazing. From the coastal region of Cape Town, you’ll discover winelands that serve the entire world, the Garden Route and, further afield, the Drakensberg and highveld. This area contains some of the country’s most unforgettable scenery on offer in South Africa.
