Colourful contrasts in one country

From chic and stylish Cape Town, through the fertile valleys of the winelands, to the rugged grandeur of Kruger National Park – the first time you visit South Africa, you’re guaranteed to be inspired – and not just by the astonishing beauty of its landscapes, and richness of its culture. The spice island of Zanzibar offers more than 25 fantastic beaches and some are so peaceful that the only noise breaking the silence is the ocean.

Most people who travel to the fascinating region of Africa have one thing on their mind – safari and in particular the ‘Big Five’. This is the term given to the most dangerous and difficult to spot animals – buffalo, elephant, lion, leopard and rhino. Africa is famous for its protected areas providing some of the best game viewing opportunities with safaris and National Parks in abundance. South Africa is home to Kruger National Park and the Eastern Cape, while neighbouring Zimbabwe, Kenya and Tanzania also boast world-class safari options.
