Celebrating 25 Years of tour excellence

The best places to visit in South Africa depend, of course, on your own particular preferences but there are some absolute must see destinations. 

The core of any great South Africa tour must include the Garden Route. Following the coast from Cape Town all the way to Storms River in Tsitsikamma National Park, this is one of the world's most scenic drives and highlights some of South Africa's spectacular coastline and charming towns.

While Cape Town itself is an unmissable destination, the area around it is just crying out to be explored. Here you'll find the Cape Winelands, where vast vineyards produce world class wines and restaurant serve up excellent gastronomy. The Cape Peninsula on the other hand is all about the beauty of nature, with the dramatic Cape Point and adorable penguins at Boulders Beach must-sees. 

Mention South Africa and many people will think of wildlife, and for good reason! There are plenty of reserves and national parks around the country, but none as well known as Kruger. The area around the national park, the Greater Kruger, is just as packed with wonderful creatures, which can be spotted on intimate and exciting safaris.
