About South Africa
Long hidden behind the repressive wall of apartheid, South Africa has made up for lost time and is now one of the top travel destinations in the world. But what brings people to this beautiful country? It’s a lot more than safari; South Africa is a diverse and always-evolving country that caters to everyone from budget travelers to the most luxury-loving tourist.
Recently named by the New York Times as their #1 pick for 2014 travel destinations, Cape Town has been wooing
visitors for centuries. The first thing any visitor notices is the ever graceful Table Mountain. Recently named on the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, this beautiful feature is a constant companion as you explore town. The town started as an important
outpost for the Dutch, and remnants of this commercial past can be found around town. Cape Town isn’t locked in the past though, it’s stylish and modern ways propelled it to the world stage in 2014 when it was named the World Design Capital. A simple
walk around town will immediately prove why it was the best choice.
Leaving the confines of the Mother City, a broad country awaits from the urban metropolis to the wilds of Kruger National Park. Safari is a major reason for many to visit the country, and the wildlife experiences don’t disappoint.
The first national park in South Africa, Kruger can be accessed individually or as part of a stay at one of their famous (and luxurious) lodges. Staying at a comfortable lodge is the ultimate South African experience as you wake for early game drives,
but spend the afternoon relaxing around a refreshing pool. It’s the best way to feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere, but with the comforts of world class hotels.
It would take many visits to truly see the full width and breadth of South Africa, but some of the fantastic experiences you can find here include:
