South Africa


Situated at the tip of the African continent and surrounded by two oceans, South Africa boasts breathtaking scenery, quaint coastal villages and cosmopolitan cities that can all be combined with a truly exhilarating Big Five South African safari.

 

Consistently voted as one of the top tourist destinations around the world, South Africa is home to one of the world's biggest nature reserves, the renowned Kruger National Park, as well as one of the most beautiful and scenic cities, Cape Town.

 

There are many different ways of traveling to South Africa but most visitors fly to Johannesburg or Cape Town. For most visitors

coming from Europe, the UK or the USA, this is a long flight of several hours. Once in the country, different modes of transport are safe to use and are recommended.

 

Roads are in a very good condition, even in game reserves like the Kruger National Park, but keep in mind that South Africa is a vast country and it may take several hours to reach destinations. Public transport like minibus taxis and buses is not a recommended mode of transport. Inland flights however are safe to use and avoid people spending too much time reaching their destinations
