We’d love to set a place for you on Table Mountain, make a camp under the stars and spot animals at a dusky waterhole, serve you the classiest glass in Winelands and point out petalled proteas and white horse waves along The Garden Route. South Africa is waiting for you with open arms.
“Few countries have the diversity of South Africa. There are game reserves for a Big 5 safari, glittering beaches to recline on and dynamic cities like Cape Town to party in. It’s a truly enthralling place. Throw in a few tastings in the Winelands and you’ll never want to leave.”
“Cape Town’s gay scene is alive and kicking, especially around De Waterkant and Somerset Road. Here, you’ll find vibrant bars and clubs serving up the best cocktails. There’s also an incredible art scene emerging in the city.”
