This is the rainbow nation and the heartbeat of the African continent.

Over 2500kms of spectacular coastline of Indian and Atlantic oceans makes for amazing views and beaches. The interior flows over massive terrain from lush grass covered ‘Highveld’, unique fynbos of the Cape to ancient mountain ranges and the bushveld which includes the iconic Kruger National Park, home of the Big 5 and a myriad smaller species of animals and birds. Running through the east of the country and into Lesotho, the Drakensberg. KwaZulu-Natal’s iSimangaliso Wetland Park alone has five distinct ecosystems, attracting both zebras and dolphins.

A turbulent history makes for an eclectic mix of cultures and ethnic groups. From the business hub of Johannesburg with bustling highways to the leafy and scenic mother city of Cape Town and all everything in between - there is never a dull moment in this very civilized yet adventurous land. It is impossible to describe the magic of South Africa safari in one small section, it is a destination for everyone. Romantic and bold, diverse and intimate at the same time... it is above all - inspirational.
