Pix SA giraffes

This is a country of incredible beauty, climatic and cultural contrasts. Discover vivid colonial and native histories, plus exceptional safaris and unique experiences. With its cosmopolitan lifestyle and semi-desert wildlife, one of its famous Capital cities sits at the base of the immense Table Mountain. After exploring the incredible scenery from above if you’re feeling adventurous try your hand at a number of extreme sports including abseiling! This country as a whole offers good value and quality for money when eating out, and whilst cuisine varies locally there is an overall partiality to meat dishes.

If you appreciate fine wines, this destination is one of the best producers serving the entire world! Its wine making history stretches back into the 17th Century around the time when the country’s first Dutch colonists settled, taste and explore manicured rows of grape vines that transform valleys into a striking patchwork of colour. Residing in the 2 million hectares of its National Park is where you can spot the ‘Big Five’ on safari, further along the coast discover the breath-taking Garden Route.

Have you guessed it yet?

With direct flights straight to this destination you can see wildlife and sublime scenery all in around 12 hours with only a small time difference.

This destination is… South Africa!
