About South Africa
South Africa is undoubtedly one of the most culturally and geographically diverse places on Earth. From bustling Johannesburg to cosmopolitan Cape Town, its cities are abuzz with all the energy and vibrancy you’d expect of the Rainbow Nation. Search for the Big Five at the world-famous Kruger National Park, go on an iconic road trip around the magical peaks of the Drakensberg Mountains, visit the Cape Winelands and go whale watching in Hermanus. With all of this variety on offer, it is little wonder that South Africa has fast become Africa’s most popular tourist destination.
