Cape Town, The Garden Route, Eastern Cape, Cape Winelands, Hermanus, Kwazulu Natal, Drakensberg, Kruger National Park, Madikwe Game Reserve and Johannesburg!
Cape Town, the World Design Capital 2014, is a magnificent city that lies between breathtaking Table Mountain and beautiful white beaches. The Cape Winelands, offering South Africa’s finest whites and reds, is filled with vineyards nestled in valleys surrounded by enormous old oak trees. History and culture as well as water sports and adventure await the traveller to Cape Town. Hermanus, an hour’s drive from Cape Town offers unparalleled scenic beauty, modern infrastructure, upmarket shops and endless adventure options. It is no wonder that Hermanus is transformed into a bustling hubbub of activity in-season as well as out-of-season. For any intrepid tourist or appreciator of nature’s wonders, Hermanus is the ideal location for an unforgettable experience. This coastal resort offers the best land and boat based whale watching in the world. The Southern Right Whales visit Walker Bay from July until December every year. About 60 to 100 of these magnificent animals come from Antarctica to breed and rear their young. Tourists are often treated with close up displays as these creatures often come to within 10 meters of the coast. The Garden Route is a most beautiful area along South Africa’s coastline offering beaches, forests, and wildlife-rich game reserves. The Eastern Cape, lying on the south eastern South African coast, is a region of great natural beauty, particularly the rugged cliffs, rough seas and dense green bush of the stretch known as the Wild Coast. The province’s diverse climates and landscapes range from the dry and desolate Great Karoo to the lush forests of the Wild Coast and the Keiskamma Valley, the fertile Langkloof, renowned for its rich apple harvests, and the mountainous southern Drakensberg region around the town of Elliot. The Eastern Cape’s main feature is its spectacular coastline, lapped by the temperate Indian Ocean. With long stretches of unspoilt sandy beaches, rocky coves, secluded lagoons and towering cliffs, the coast is the province’s main tourist attraction.
The Eastern Cape is home to the Big Seven; buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, rhino, great white shark and southern right whale. A trip to the Eastern Cape is not complete without catching a glimpse of these animals in their indigenous environment.
The tropical waters of Kwazulu Natal make this ideal for family beach holidays escalating to the mesmerizing Drakensberg Mountains and wonderful game reserves along the way. The Kruger National Park is the ultimate home of the Big 5 with its unspoiled environment offering you wild Africa beyond your imagination! Expert rangers, luxurious lodges, wildlife, animal life, ecosystems and topography all await. Madikwe Private Game Reserve offers an array of malaria-free safaris in Big 5 Country in the North West Province of South Africa. It is home to lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, rhino, the rare species of wild dog and cheetah as well as over 360 species of birds.
