With its stunning coastline and imposing mountains, endless untamed savannah, hauntingly beautiful deserts, forests and open plains, South Africa is an essential country to visit.
Discover the diversity of ‘the rainbow nation’
The jewel in its crown is Cape Town, one of the prettiest cities in Africa, if not the world, sandwiched between the sea and the iconic Table Mountain, with an unmissable urban scene. Nicknamed ‘the mother city’, Cape Town has everything a discerning traveller could hope for; from its astounding natural beauty through to a world class culinary scene and vibrant culture and nightlife.
All this makes the city the perfect destination to start your African adventure, before continuing with a safari. The list of things to do is truly endless; from visiting some of the world’s finest vineyards, and of course tasting some of their spectacular wines, through to climbing to the top of Table Mountain and taking in the views of the city to the sea. From here, a drive along one of the most breathtaking coastal highways in the world will bring you to Boulders Beach, home to a colony of Cape penguins.
With all this to experience and more, there’s only one word to accurately describe South Africa: breathtaking.
