Shaped by a rich history of influences, South Africa’s breath-taking beauty stretches over vast areas of land.  Gold, diamonds and the spirit of adventure drew explorers and pioneers from all over the globe.  Over time, different peoples settled in this land and now it is home to many cultures.  Yet despite their diversity, all have come to think of themselves as South Africans.  United by their deep-rooted love for this country – a land so beautiful, it binds all in a shared vision of hope and prosperity. It’s here that you will find the world’s oldest rocks, the world’s oldest fossils, and the world’s newest democracy.

Everywhere you go in South Africa your senses will be awakened.  Whether it is on safari where you can witness a lion kill while someone else does the driving, or hot-air ballooning across grasslands. Perhaps you would prefer to relax in the luxury of a 5-star hotel or breathe in the night air as you lie back with nothing between you and the wilderness but the canvas of your tent.  Boredom is a word seldom used in South Africa.

There are many options available to those who would like to extend their trip and make a holiday out of it.
