Wildlife, culture, adventure and fine wines: a country to savour

Why South Africa?

Few places on earth can match South Africa for adventure. From swimming up rivers to abseiling down cliffs, the activities on offer are as vast and varied as the landscapes. You could embark on a road trip through stunning scenery, bask in the superb climate, explore world-class wilderness and sample award-winning wines.

For families, South Africa really comes into its own. On a practical level, it's a destination where you can pack everything in, without going overboard on costs. The hugely beneficial exchange rate means your money goes an incredibly long way.

And, if you and your kids love the outdoor life, you’ll find everything you could possibly want: rafting, riding, walking, snorkelling and much more. With its mix of intrepid activities and modern indulgences, South Africa is hard to beat.
