South Africa is renowned for being a beautiful country, whether it be the Drakensburg mountains, the famous Kruger National Park, or the many villages and townships which dot the landscape.

Whether you’re after a relaxing beach break, exploring through the forests, a golf break along the Garden Route or perhaps wine tasting in Paarl, Stellenbosch or Franschoek, there really is something for everyone in South Africa.

The main attractions in South Africa you mustn’t miss include Table Mountain and Cape Point, as well as making sure to visit one of the many wildlife preserves, such as Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, where you can see such animals as cheetahs, leopards and maybe even the rare black-maned lion.

Cape Town, in the south, is one of the most popular cities for visitors, providing good access to both Table Mountain and the Cape of Good Hope, as well as ferries to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was held for many years, and the city is also a great starting point for the Garden Trail which runs along the Western Cape.

Until you visit it for yourself, no guidebook can really capture the beauty and diversity that South Africa has to offer, so why not browse our flight deals here at Globehunters and discover it for yourself?
