Framed by two oceans and five countries (while completely surrounding the sixth) South Africa is an enormous and stunningly diverse country, with a rich and historic landscape ranging from mountain peaks to deserts and savannahs and temperate vineyards.
Revel in this picturesque melting pot of vibrant and diverse cultures, or marvel at the intrigue of the world-renowned, majestic Table Mountain standing like a fortress overlooking the dynamic city that is Cape Town. Along with its buzzing galleries, museums, and luxurious hotels (Ellerman House, Future Found Sanctuary, Labotessa, Cape Grace), Cape Town is also known as the foodie capital of the world. You can savour splendid cuisine and the finest wines at celebrated restaurants (La Colombe, FYN) while soaking in the vibrant neighbourhoods. To top it off, you can set off on scenic drives and watch spectacular sunsets beyond lofty mountains.
Exchange trendy urban landscapes for the charming villages and sprawling estates of Cape Winelands destinations such as Franschhoek. It is the food and wine capital of the country, and arguably among the most beautiful wine valleys in the world. The vineyards here serve up memorable wine tastings in postcard-perfect iconic hotels (Leeu Estates, Babalonstoren, Delaire Graff Estate).
Wandering the craggy outcrops of quaint Hermanus, you may witness migrating humpback whales at their mesmerising acrobatics, blowing, breaching and lobtailing as they go in search of warmer waters. Or you may drive along the Garden Route that winds between soaring mountain peaks, skirting dense forests and crystal-clear lakes.
You would be hard-pressed to find a place that provides a better change of pace and scenery than the iconic Kruger National Park or the exquisite Sabi Sands Game Reserve. Check into some of the finest luxury lodges on the planet (Cheetah Plains, Londolozi, Singita Boulders), and venture forth to admire Africa’s Big Five—a thrilling leopard sighting will make your day.
