Discover South Africa

Explore Epic South Africa

Cape Town, Kruger and so much more

Find the beautiful ‘Mother City’ of Cape Town draped between the iconic Table Mountain and sandy beaches, a great introduction to the culture and people of South Africa with her buzzing restaurants, celebrated galleries and museums. From here, follow the coast to whale-watching sanctuaries and nature reserves blanketed in wildflowers, or head inland to discover the country's exceptional wildlife on a life-changing safari.

The safari is reason enough to visit South Africa, but adding in the fabulous people, beautiful Cape Town, the Winelands, the restaurant scene, some epic stretches of coastline and more besides is what really makes it. It's also where half the team is from so it's Niarra's second home!

Luxury safaris and unforgettable adventures

Along with iconic destinations of Cape Town and the Kruger National Park, there are many off-the-beaten track attractions to explore. Some other great spots for wildlife, especially for those travelling with a young family or those after something more active, can be found in the KwaZulu-Natal and Limpopo provinces. And for a different experience, the Kalahari offers epic desert landscapes and a chance to see some fascinating species. Thrilling adventure, fascinating history, rich culture and awe-inspiring nature are all on offer, always served up with the warm hospitality South Africans are renowned for.

If you are keen to visit more than one country, South Africa can easily be combined with other African countries like Botswana, or even Tanzania and Kenya in East Africa. Please don't hesitate to get in touch and one of our Travel Researchers will start working on a personalised itinerary just for you.
