Get set for an adventure

Stretching from sandy beaches and colonies of penguins in the west, to the open plains of wildest Africa at the stunning Kruger National Park, South Africa is one of Africa's most unique and vibrant destinations. With 11 official languages, a wide variety of awe-inspiring landscapes and a diverse mix of culture and tradition, South Africa captivates and inspires hordes of travellers every year.

To experience the best of it, you’ll need to cover a lot of ground; sunbathe on the beaches, spy wildlife on the African plains and sample award-winning wine at Stellenbosch. With so much to see, we recommend hitting the road with a hire car and travelling at your own pace on one of our tailor-made holidays. You do the driving, we’ll do the rest.
