South Africa is a playground for any and all holiday-makers - it’s the ideal country to visit if you are a thrill-seeker looking for adventure, a relaxed person wanting to experience SA at a leisurely pace, a sportsman focused on finding the perfect golf course, a nature enthusiast ready to spot Mzansi’s animals, a foodie enticed by the local cuisine and wine, or a party-goer focused on seeing the nightlife.

Whether you are a comfort-seeking urbanite or outdoor traveller, South Africa has got your holiday needs covered!

The coastline and the inland both offer spectacular recreational activities, that range from game safaris, spa treatments, historical sites and gourmet food and wine tours to hiking, mountain biking and watersports, as well as a plethora of children’s activities.
