Top 5 South African Holidays

South Africa is bursting with places for you to explore and travel to. Where do you want to go?

It shouldn’t be difficult to find new and exciting places to go on holiday in a country as beautiful and diverse as ours.  From the coast to the city, we are blessed with endless options when it comes to planning a trip. So instead of spending ridiculous amounts of money abroad, rather explore your home turf first.

1.Coastal

You don’t need to mission to Thailand or Mozambique to experience amazing beaches and coastlines.
From the West Coast to the Walker Bay, we literally have hundreds of coastal towns to choose from and you can plan your trip according to your needs.  

2.Safari

If whale watching isn’t wild enough for you, why don’t you go truly African and plan a safari?

From the world famous Kruger National Park, to the Addo Elephant Park in the Eastern Cape, and even the Aquila Game Reserve in the Western Cape – South Africa is just as wild as the rest of the continent.

3.City

Think of how much fun the girls of Sex and the City had in New York. Why don’t you go try out the nightlife and urban chic of Joburg, Cape Town, and even Durban and experience a cosmopolitan lifestyle right here in Mzanzi.

4.Hiking/camping

We are blessed with beautiful landscapes and magnificent mountain ranges, which aren’t only there to admire, but to explore! So go Bear Grylls style and get out your hiking boots and camping gear!

5.Wine routes

Yes, it is possible to plan a whole holiday around vino. From the rolling hills of Stellenbosch to the lush vineyards of the Hemel and Aarde Valley, even teetotallers will enjoy this holiday for its scenic beauty.

What are  some of your favourite holiday destinations in the beautiful South Africa? Have any ideas for us?
