Very few countries rival South Africa's scenic splendour and cultural diversity. Johannesburg, the gold mining town that sprung up so haphazardly in the 1880s, is now a sprawling commercial city. Cape Town offers chic harbourside dining, panoramic views from Table Mountain and access to the many vineyards of the region, as well as Robben Island. Other attractions include the ancestral home of the Zulu nation KwaZulu-Natal, the ancient lava mountains of the Richtersveld, the granite chasm of the Augrabies Falls and elephant spotting in Kruger National Park.
Southern Africa is a region of incredible diversity in landscape, wildlife and culture. Experience desert, savannah, forests, coral reefs, endless beaches, mountains, modern cities, ancient ruins, epic scenery and prolific wildlife - all possible within a nine day holiday.
