OVERVIEW

South Africa offers multiple destinations and a variety of things to both see and do to both the traveller and vacationer. In addition to what one can see and do, there is plenty to experience as South Africa is a multicultural and multiracial country and there are as many as 11 official languages – Nelson Mandela often referred to South Africa as the Rainbow Nation.

Well-endowed by location and nature, there are few countries that can boast of what South Africa offers – an almost 3000 km coastline with some pristine sandy beaches, the Kgalagadi deserts, the lush green reserves of Tsitsikamma and a range of wildlife that is second to none in the continent. The vibrancy and nightlife of Cape Town, the Spectacular Garden Route and whale watching near Hermanus, The Big 5 at the Kruger National Park are just the known tips of the iceberg. There is so much more!

South Africa has more than 500 golf courses, some of which amongst the very best in the world. It is no surprise that major winners such as Gary Player, Bobby Locke, Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Trevor Immelman, Louis Oosthuizen, Charl Shwartzel all belong to South Africa.
