There is a holiday for everyone in South Africa, such is the variety that’s on offer from wildlife viewing and wine tasting to walking and history. You can explore wild coasts and mountains, cosmopolitan cities and rural Zulu villages, all in the course of the same holiday.
On a walking holiday in South Africa, the Drakensburg Mountains are the place to be. This lush landscape is home to protea plants - South Africa’s national flower – as well as troops of cheeky baboon and colourful songbirds. Or set foot on the battlefields to learn about the bloody conflicts that took place during the Anglo-Zulu wars.
Of course, the best wildlife highlights can be enjoyed on safari in the game reserves – home to Africa’s mighty big mammals from plains game to the big cats that regard them as prey.
