Most holidays to the Rainbow Nation take in the vibrant and cosmopolitan harbour city of Cape Town. In the protective shadow of Table Mountain, it offers a friendly welcome to visitors from around the world
The city, itself, has a host of attractions, including the old Castle, Company's Gardens, the thought provoking District Six Museum and the lively waterfront, to name but a few. It is also the base for exploring the beaches and coastal scenery of the Cape of Good Hope as well as the historic towns and tempting vineyards of South Africa's Winelands.
Further east is South Africa's beautiful Eastern Cape. Journey to it along the famous Garden Route for a view of South Africa at its best; rolling hills and fertile valleys, dramatic forest clad mountains, spectacular ocean vistas and the friendly seaside towns of Knysna and Plettenberg.
Around Port Elizabeth, malaria free game reserves offer luxury lodge stays, perfect at the end of a Garden Route tour or self drive. Most include meals, morning and afternoon game drives and other activities.
South Africa's holiday playground of Durban offer year round holidays beside the Indian Ocean with a warm climate and miles of golden sand beaches.
Durban is also the starting point for visiting the Zulu region of KwaZulu-Natal. Here traditional life goes on in the roundel houses of the hillside villages. It is also the area of the Zulu wars between the British and the Boers as well as the native population. To the west, the Drakensberg Mountains offer magnificent scenery and some great sightseeing and walking.
Justly world famous for its vast National Park, the Kruger promises an unforgettable African wildlife experience. All types of holiday are possible here, from luxurious inclusive lodges to small group tours and adventurous self drives. As you visit the Park look out for lion, buffalo, elephant and antelopes in great number, plus giraffe, zebra, rhino and scores of other creatures native to Africa.
Outside of the Kruger Park the scenery is equally as spectacular, with rugged mountain ranges, quaint country towns and dramatic vistas around the renowned Blyde River Canyon.
Johannesburg is the gateway to many South Africa holidays and it is worth spending a few days here or in neighbouring Pretoria. This is the financial and governmental heart of South Africa and offers some fine old buildings and galleries as well as an insight into South Africa's troubled past with visits to Soweto township and The Apartheid Museum.
To the north west is Sun City, with its casino and resort hotels, ideal for a few days relaxation. From here you can also visit the malaria free Pilanesberg Game Reserve or the well known Madikwe Reserve near the border with Botwana.
With so much to do in South Africa, it is not surprising that visitors return time and time again. Talk to a Freedom Africa expert about what you want to do on your South Africa holiday, whether it's visiting just one of the regions or combining the best of two or more.
