Affectionately dubbed the ‘Rainbow Nation’ because of the diversity of its cultures, languages and religions, the Republic of South Africa at the very tip of the African continent is the ultimate explorer’s holiday destination.
Boasting 21 national parks, 8 world heritage sites and over 3,500km of wildly beautiful coastline bordering two oceans, the vastness of this amazing country and the limitless possibilities it provides for adventure is astounding.
Its sheer size causes South Africa to experience dramatic variety in its climatic zones. With dry deserts in the North West, tropical humidity on the east coast, and an almost Mediterranean weather front to the South West, each province has its own unique quirks and personality to offer holidaymakers.
Explore the forests from a leafy canopy vantage point, or get up close and personal with Africa’s Big 5 in a safari tour or why not dive deep underwater and experience the terror of coming face to face with a ragged tooth shark?
Whatever you’re looking for from a South African holiday, you’re sure not to be disappointed!
