As one of the world’s most ecologically diverse countries, South Africa is a fantastic place for experiencing a breadth of gorgeous landscapes and exotic wildlife. From the fabulous mountain ranges of uKhahlamba-Drakensberg to the stunning sights of Shark Alley, South Africa has a wealth of beautiful sights to discover.
Whether you’re an avid wildlife spotter or you simply want to let your hair down in the sun, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for. Book flights to South Africa and discover the beauty of this vast and varied country for yourself.
Of course, if you’re looking for a little modern beauty, you’re sure to find it in jumping Cape Town, also known as South Africa’s Mother City. Flights to Cape Town will deposit you straight into the heart of a fast paced city where there are plenty of wild nights to be discovered. Urban jungle explorers will find plenty to enjoy in Johannesburg and Durban too, and if there’s one thing you can guarantee in SA’s major cities, it’s finding plenty of folk who know how to party.
Animal lovers won’t be able to resist the temptation of some of South Africa’s amazing wildlife trails, and a Big 5 Safari is a treat not to be missed. The big 5 are buffalo, elephant, lion, leopard and rhino – the animals considered most dangerous to hunt – and on these guided trips you’ll have a chance to see them in their natural habitat.
Special sea creatures
If underwater animals are more your thing, you’ll find plenty to amaze you on South Africa’s coasts. Pay a visit to Hermanus, considered the world’s best whale watching spot, or book a boat trip between June and November and look out for these giants of the deep king4d. Get your feet wet with a thrilling cage-dive in Shark Alley, off the Cape coast for the chance to get up close and personal with a great white, or spend a more sedate evening tracking turtles along Maputaland’s beaches.
Enjoy the beauty of South Africa from a whole new angle by planning a little adventurous sight seeing. Try out a Canopy Tour to enjoy zipping around in the trees and getting a unique perspective on the flora and fauna of majestic forests. The really brave may also enjoy a thrilling bungee jump from the Bloukrans Bridge, a specially designed bridge suspended below the roads’ surface that gives you an unforgettable view of the surrounding countryside.
