South Africa allows the visitor to luxuriate in its glorious landscapes, cultural diversity and amazing wildlife. Cape Town is the ultimate travel destination surrounded by sandy beaches and set against the canvas of Table Mountain.

Table Mountain is reached by cable car giving you an aerial panoramic view of the city. The National park of Table Mountain is of remarkable natural beauty encapsulating rugged cliffs, diverse fauna and flora, rich bio-diversity and lush vegetation. Known as the "Mother City" it offers a cosmopolitan experience of top class restaurants and louche cocktail bars.

Close to Cape Town is Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years and now acts as a museum which offers a cultural and historical insight into the lives of the freedom fighters who were incarcerated there. A two hour drive from Cape Town offers the opportunity to see The Great White Shark from the safety of a cage.

Constantia Valley is Cape Town's vineyard and leading attraction for the oenophiles among you. These top drawer vineyards are the oldest in the Southern Hemisphere and make up an astonishing wine route which has been showered with international awards.This relaxing sojourn is best accompanied with a chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Stellenbosch, Franschoek and Paarl Valley also provide a picturesque backdrop to sample the fine wines of this region.

One of the treasures of South Africa is the Garden Route from Cape Town to Tsitsikamma where you can marvel at the lush splendour of its mysterious forests, dramatic coastline and tranquil lakes. Hermanus that lies at the heart of the route is the premier location for whale-watching.

The Sardine Run off Cape Point occurs annually where millions of silvery sardines hug the coastline in masses stretching over ten miles long. This incredible spectacle rivals the more famous wildebeest migration and allows the bonus of viewing the feeding frenzy for the birds, sharks, dolphins and whales as they jostle for the tasty sardines.

The Kruger National Park is home to an amazing multitude of species in the form of game and birdlife. This country's largest park boasts the highest concentration of wildlife species including cheetahs, lions, antelope, wildebeest, elephants, rhino and giraffes.

In the north-east of the Kalahari Desert is the Tswalu Game Reserve where one of the highlights of the trip is to view meerkats up close. This park provides the excellent opportunity to see a variety of endangered species including African Buffalo, Black Rhino and Kalahari Lion. Walking safaris, sleeping under the stars and horse trails are all catered for.

And lets not forget that South Africa is an obsessive sporting nation. In the Republic you have some of the finest golf courses, amazing surf breaks, stunning cricket grounds, a vibrant football culture. And, apparently, they have a decent rugby team. It's a sports lover's paradise.
