Overview

Despite South Africa’s anguished past, the country that occupies the southern tip of Africa has re-invented itself along the lines of a modern destination featuring a mixture of out-of-this-world scenery with a vibrant cultural heritage that combine to create an unforgettable experience.

Many visitors arriving on cheap flights to South Africa head for Cape Town, the oldest city in southern Africa. Its trendy restaurants and a hopping nightlife scene nestle comfortably in the beautiful coastal setting. Further north lies Johannesburg, a vibrant and edgy city, that many travellers see en route to Kruger Park, the world’s biggest and probably best-known wildlife reserve.

Many of the towns on South Africa’s long coast along both the Indian and Atlantic oceans also attract many visitors. Durban, located in KwaZulu-Natal province, features the best surfing beaches in the country while Port Elizabeth and its café culture attracts many travellers heading for the Garden Route. This area along the country’s coast boasts a combination of forests, beaches and lagoons that are one of South Africa’s most popular destinations.
