Regions in South Africa

We’re confident you’ll want to visit South Africa more than once, so take your time and saunter along the beautiful Garden Route, sample fine South African wine in the Winelands, don't leave the Kruger until you've ticked off the Big Five and allow Cape Town several days to work its magic.

With formidable Table Mountain as its backdrop, and show-stopping views to the Atlantic, it’s no wonder Cape Town garners so much attention. But aside from basking in the most stunning of locations, Cape Town is wonderfully cosmopolitan and provides a stylish punctuation mark in an African itinerary.
World famous for superlative wildlife viewing, the Kruger’s iconic reputation is wholly justified. A cast of thousands of game await you in this strip of land that hugs the border with Mozambique, and acacia-dotted stretches of Savannah are just waiting for you to photograph. 
Having sampled a glass of South Africa’s finest in Cape Town it would be madness not to visit the nearby Winelands. A glamorous way to get there is by helicopter, but it’s also an exhilarating experience to drive over the four mountain passes. When you arrive on the historic wine estates, you can cogitate over every imaginable grape variety, surrounded by marvellous scenery.
There’s a temptation to rush along this beautiful coastal plain between Mossel Bay and Storms River mouth, but we recommend taking your time to explore its mountains, forests and secluded coves. Ideal for a scenic self-drive, you can potter around the pretty coastal towns, play golf on one of many good golf courses, and if you’re lucky spot whales and dolphins from the craggy headland. 
The landscape of the Eastern Cape is distinctive and instantly recognisable with undulating hills punctuated by tall aloes, euphorbia and bushy cape scrub. Highly successful conservation efforts in re-establishing the game that originally populated this area, have seen large tracts of land converted into private game reserves, resulting in strong numbers of lion, elephant and rhino - including the rare black rhino.
Jagged coastline meets crashing waves on the wonderfully wild Western Cape. It may not be the place for sunbathing, but it’s heaven for walking in the ocean-spray, dramatic sea views, and coastal paths strewn with wild flowers.
A staggering translocation programme has transformed this vast reserve on the Botswanan border into a haven for wildlife. For a malaria free safari, the sweeping savannah and rocky escarpment of Madikwe are home to The Big Five, as well as hyena, giraffe, cheetah, and the rare wild dog.
From the Drakensberg Mountains, to the beautiful Indian Ocean coastline, KwaZulu-Natal is a vast and varied patchwork where you can experience the best of South Africa’s culture, scenery, and wildlife. Trekking through sand forest and scrub on a wilderness safari, you’ll have the chance to spot the Big Five, including the rare black rhino.
The Highveld (highlands) of South Africa is situated on a high altitude plateau of sweeping grasslands, and is the commercial and industrial hub of the country. At its heart is the megalopolis Johannesburg, which stems from gold and diamond mining that dates back to the 1800's.
The diverse and beautiful Welgevonden Game Reserve in South Africa thrives with some of South Africa’s most iconic wildlife. The reserve’s name, rather fittingly, translates as ‘well found’, and this is a prime spot for seeing the Big Five and much more.
