South Africa offers travellers so much –  mountains, beaches, forests, lakes, waterfalls, cities, villages and landmarks like Table Mountain or Soweto.

Along the Western Cape the Garden Route offers lush forest and lagoons, the route is bordered by perfect white beaches.  A good destination to combine with spending some time in one of the many Game Parks found in South Africa.

Kruger Park is a wildlife enthusiast paradise with 150 different mammals and over 500 species of birds. Endangered wild dogs can be found in the south, cheetah and zebra on the plains and giraffe in the wooded areas.

The Drakensberg Mountains and Kwa Zulu Natal area is known as the garden province and is the home of the Zulu nation. Offering fascinating glimpses of a multi- cultured people, a history rich in heroic deeds, bloody battles all set against a majestic backdrop of sun, sea, and mountains.

The Eastern Cape is known as the land of rolling hills, endless sweeps of rocky coves and sandy beaches, towering mountain ranges and verdant forests.

Namaqualand is big sky country. After the winter rainfall visit the famous carpets of flowers,  fields and fields of different coloured petals.
