South Africa is celebrated, first and foremost, for its incredible natural beauty. It has some of the most varied extreme environments in the world, from the tropical beaches of KwaZulu Natal to the sweeping emptiness of the Kalahari Desert. It’s a top-rate safari destination and many visitors come here to see the Big Five – the collective term for the big-bucks players of wildlife spotting: elephant, rhino, buffalo, leopard and lion. But there are numerous other equally interesting animals, birds and marine species and the choice of excellent parks and reserves across the country virtually guarantees sightings.

Being outdoor is very much a way of life here and you can try hiking and surfing, or opt for one of the booming adrenaline sports such as bungee jumping or scuba-diving. South Africa’s history is compelling too, from the early hunter-gatherers to the arrival of the Europeans, the Boer War and the ore recent breakdown of Apartheid, reflected in the cave paintings, colonial architecture, lively townships, moving battlefields and contemporary museums.

The county’s vibrant cities are home to a fascinating mix of cultures, religions and ethnicities. There’s fast-paced sophistication of Johannesburg and Tshwane (Pretoria), the steamy humidity and spicy Indian influence of Durban, or the spectacular setting and quirky beach-side hedonism of Cape Town.
