Bathed by the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian Ocean, South Africa is a mosaic of hilly landscapes and stunning countryside. The mix of the different cultures of the Cape and Johannesburg makes these cities choice destinations for gourmets eager to taste Afrikaner cuisine. South Africa is the country of diversity. You will visit Robben Island, the island upon which Nelson Mandela was shut away for 18 years during Apartheid, and at the same time you will discover a country deeply marked by its history. You will stroll over the dunes of Arniston, will be amazed by the ostrich farms on the mountainous tracks of little Karoo and will end your excursion in the crystal clear waters of the rapids of the Tsitsikamma national park. The country also has a reputation for the quality of its wine. A walk in the bucolic region of Boland will enable you to sample the country's best wines directly at the producers. Finally, what would a trip to South Africa be without a safari to the heart of the most beautiful of wild animal reserves? You are bound to be charmed by the elephants, rhinos and tigers that populate the Kruger region.

South Africa is marked by two seasons: a hot and humid summer (November to March) and a dry cooler winter (April to October). The Western Cape region has winter rainfall from June to August. The good thing is that South Africa has something to offer for each season. Safari season is from April to October. From November to March, the beaches of the Western Cape are idyllic. If you come between June and September there is a fair chance you will see whales… And then there is the Kwazulu-Natal coast, perfect for bathing all year round.

We spent 5 days in Cape Town and 4 days in the Bush. All of them were delightful. There is so much to do and everything was interesting, exciting.

We had a wonderful trip organised with the support of the local agency. We enjoyed every destination and every moment of the trip. The Safari adventure looking for the Big Five at Limpopo region was the most exited. Driving to the wonders of the Garden Route and walling at Cape Town waterfront we enjoyed a lot.
