Unforgettable wildlife, superb hiking & great food

South Africa is an incredibly diverse country, which has something for everyone. Beautifully set amongst rugged coast and beautiful beaches, Cape Town seamlessly marries its troubled history with the high life. One minute we were learning about apartheid and visiting a township, the next sampling cocktails overlooking golden sands or sampling wines on country estates.

If wildlife is what you are after then Kruger National Park is one of the premium safari destinations in the world. And since you can self-drive it offers great wildlife viewings at good value prices.

Finally, if you want to experience a less touristy South Africa, try KwaZulu Natal. It has pristine wetlands, excellent safari parks and, in the Drakensbergs, some of the finest hiking scenery in the world.

It’s a great road trip destination. Here’s all you need to know to plan your own adventure.
