South Africa travel guide

South Africa is a big country. Its nine provinces each have a distinct personality and something special to offer the traveller. Unless you have a long time to spend flying between cities, you’ll need to choose one or two areas, and come back a few times for the rest. However, there are some features that apply to the whole country, and that make South Africa a very desirable destination. Firstly, the weak rand makes South Africa affordable to most of the Western world as well as the Far East. You can live it up here, eat first class food and drink exceptional wines, luxuriate in spa treatments, go on safaris and beach holidays and entertain your family for a fraction of the cost in your home country. Secondly, the weather is usually conducive to travel, being moderate for most of the year and only extremely hot or cold in a few areas. The entire country is crowded with peerless natural scenery, and it’s not just one kind of scenery. There are rocky coastlines, mountains and waterfalls, huge forests, deserts, scrub and bush, not to mention one of the six floral kingdoms of the world, found only in the Western Cape. South Africa’s wildlife is spectacular, from the famous big game to rare coastal birds. The highly organised game viewing operators may provide your only chance of seeing the Big Five up close.

If you love adventure and sports, the list of possibilities is immense, from paragliding, abseiling and bungee jumping, to deep sea diving, shark cage diving, boat safaris, from ziplining in treetops to foot safaris on game reserves. The cities have outstanding facilities – transport, connectivity, entertainment, food and wine that get rave reviews from international experts. South African people are warm and hospitable and represent one of the broadest range of cultures in the world – where else will you find eleven official languages?

This country’s history stirs the emotions, and its legacy can be seen today in the way that first and third world live side by side, and Western influences blend with tribal African traditions. Travelling here you will experience something different: there’s nothing homogenous, and plenty of the unexpected.

If you’re here for the first time, factor in at least three of these:
