The climate varies widely across South Africa: grapes grown on one side of the country might produce completely different wines than those grown on another.

South Africa is a country full of surprises, and whether you've been there before or are going for the first time, there's always something new to discover. From the cosmopolitan cities of Johannesburg and Cape Town to the vast wildernesses of Kruger National Park, South Africa has it all. That's why so many people choose South Africa tour.

Discover the Big Five and more

The Big Five are an unforgettable experience for any visitor to South Africa. They are the most sought-after animals in the country, and will make your trip to South Africa one of the most memorable times of your life.

The lions, elephants, buffalos, rhinos and leopards are all difficult to find due to their habit of hiding in dense bush or rocky outcrops. This means that you will need a guide who has been trained by an experienced safari tour operator to help you spot them.

Visit the world's oldest wine region

Wine is a big deal in South Africa, so much so that the country has been called "the world's oldest wine region." Wine accounts for a whopping 18% of South Africa's total exports. The industry employs around 200,000 people and contributes over $7 billion annually to the country’s economy.

The climate varies widely across South Africa: grapes grown on one side of the country might produce completely different wines than those grown on another. You can expect to find everything from white sparkling wine made from chenin blanc grapes (similar to French Sancerre) to deep red merlots similar to Cabernet Sauvignon... all made right here in South Africa!

Taste the very best food and wine

South Africa's cuisine is a mix of traditional African, European and Asian dishes. The South African kitchen offers a rich array of flavors and styles, with influences from French, Dutch, British, Portuguese and Chinese cooking traditions.

The country’s wine industry has been growing rapidly since the end of apartheid in 1994. There are now more than 1 000 wineries throughout South Africa. A few notable ones include:

  • The cellars at Rustenberg Wines - This winery produces some excellent reds made from grapes like cabernet sauvignon and shiraz. You'll also find exceptional sparkling wines here as well as delicious ciders and other fruit wines that are perfect for pairing with your meal during your tour experience!
  • Groot Constantia estate - Experience the best South African wines tasting at this historic estate which features vineyards dating back to 1685—the oldest on record in any country outside Europe! (Note: Children under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult)

Discover a safari you'll never forget

When you think of a safari, you probably picture a jeep, open-air and covered with dust. But the world of safaris is much broader than that.

There are many ways to explore the bush, including in a vehicle that's open or closed, on foot or horseback and even via helicopter (in case you want to see all those giraffes from above). You can go to different locations throughout South Africa, from Kruger National Park to Addo Elephant Park. And if you're looking for something completely different than what most people do when they think about safaris—a beach vacation—South Africa has got you covered there as well!

Relax on some of the continent's most beautiful beaches

South Africa is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. From the famous Cape Town surf beaches to the palm-lined shores of Durban, there are plenty of options for you to choose from. The country’s coastline stretches for more than 3,500 kilometers (2,200 miles), so there’s no shortage of great locations for a relaxing swim or sunbathing session!

Explore a World Heritage Site

South Africa has a lot to offer as far as travel destinations go, but one thing that makes it stand out from the rest is its abundance of world heritage sites. If you're planning a trip there and like history, culture, and nature all rolled into one package, then this is an excellent opportunity to see some amazing places! South Africa has over 100 sites on the World Heritage List (and was awarded “Country of Conservation” status by UNESCO in 2003), making it home to more than any other African country.

Why does South Africa have so many? Well for starters it's got plenty of natural beauty around every corner: you can find deserts filled with wildlife species like elephants and lions; snowy peaks where zebras roam free; forests teeming with monkeys jumping from tree branch to tree branch; quiet beaches where whales come up for air—the list goes on! Then there are also historical sites such as Robben Island prison where Nelson Mandela spent 18 years (he's now free).

Visit Nelson Mandela's prison home for 27 years

In 1964, Nelson Mandela was imprisoned on Robben Island for 27 years. Today, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the best places to visit in South Africa.

The main attraction is the Robben Island Museum, where visitors can learn about life under apartheid and see photographs from that era as well as from when Mandela was incarcerated there (including his prison cell). There are also two beaches worth visiting: one where prisoners were allowed to swim in the sea from time to time (but only if they had earned this privilege) and another known for its magnificent view of Cape Town.

The island is easily accessible by ferry from Cape Town or Simon’s Town; take note that there’s no accommodation on site so you will have to stay at a hotel nearby if you want somewhere comfortable to sleep after a long day exploring Robben Island!

South Africa offers visitors a unique travel experience

South Africa is a country that offers visitors a truly unique travel experience. With a diversity of landscapes and cultures, South Africa is a world apart from other countries. For example, you may have heard of the different cultures represented there: Zulu, Sesotho, Xhosa and Afrikaans to name but a few! In addition to these cultures, there are many different languages spoken in South Africa such as English and Zulu (or Nguni).

South Africans also enjoy warm climates year-round with temperatures ranging from 25-30 degrees Celsius during winter months (June - September) down to 20-25 degrees Celsius during summer months (December - February). However if you prefer cooler climates then head inland where temperatures can often drop below zero during winter months especially near mountains or on high ground where altitude plays an important part in temperature levels.

Our final word of advice? Don’t wait any longer to plan your guided tours of south Africa! The country is full of iconic attractions, breathtaking scenery and fascinating history that you won't want to miss.
