While wildlife safaris are reason enough to visit this exquisite country, South Africa offers even more to see and do.

The city of Cape Town is a jewel that is well worth visiting. Set against the iconic Table Mountain, Cape Town offers lots to explore, including the V&A Waterfront, Chapman’s Peak, Boulders Penguin Colony and several beautiful beaches — just to give you an idea. Not to mention the delicious food and fabulous shopping, all of which can be enjoyed at a favourable exchange rate.

With so much diversity, South Africa has something for everyone to enjoy!
