Breathtaking scenery & fascinating history
South AfricaA country of breathtaking scenery and fascinating history, which has emerged from the oppressive politics of the past, South Africa’s cosmopolitan cities and first-world infrastructure have made the country a top choice for travelers to Africa
From the private game reserves to the iconic view of Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa offers opportunities to enjoy diverse of landscapes and experiences. South Africa’s safari industry is a lot more commercialized and not as “wild” as other parts of Africa, but it is priced well and there are a handful of destinations off-the-beaten-track. Cape Town and the surrounding Winelands offer world-class dining, a buzzing café and bar scene, making the region an epicurean’s dream. Cape Town can actually be combined quite easily with some more unique safari destinations and there are now flights from Kenya, Zambia and Botswana. In short, we recommend Cape Town as a great add-on to your safari, but believe that the “real Africa” is found outside of South Africa in terms of an authentic safari experience.
