Famed for exotic safaris and packed full of eco- diversity, South Africa is simply staggering in terms of its natural beauty. Home to arid savannah plains, lush green valleys, rugged mountains and verdant jungle vegetation, it has it all. Unsurprisingly, with a coastline stretching across both the Indian and Atlantic oceans, the possibilities for exploration are endless. Whether it’s a game drive through Kruger National Park, a shark dive in Gansbaai, a wine tasting tour in Stellenbosch or a climb to the plateau of Cape Town’s iconic Table Mountain, there is plenty to do and see. Rife with ethnic diversity, South Africa’s challenging history also remains central to its identity. Traveller’s need only glance at the barren landscape of Robben Island (where Nelson Mandela was held captive) to acknowledge the impact of the Apartheid. With an unbreakable spirit and an inherent vibrancy, however, the warmth of the South African people is ever present.
