South Africa

Find out the wonderfully various and breathtakingly stunning South Africa; home to some of the worlds most. From cage diving with great white sharks and whale watching in Hermanus, to embarking on one of the best road trips of all time, The Garden Route, South Africa won’t disappoint.

Endeavor on a safari to see the Big Five at Kruger National Park, watch penguins waddle onto the beach in Cape Town, voted best city in the world, and tour the vineyards in Cape Winelands; there’s something for everyone. South Africa gives you the chance to combine city, safari, sea and mountains all in one trip, making it one to remember.

Meanwhile, rail journeys traversing South Africa’s mountain ranges, grasslands, and semi-arid Karoo Desert allow you to see the country’s untouched, far-flung areas.
