So you want to visit South Africa and by now you have probably already read loads of travel websites and seen the amazing places that the country has to offer!  South Africa is huge, offering a diversity of tempting experiences and great destinations and our best advice is not to try and cram everything on your wish list when you want to visit South Africa. For the fear that, you will come home feeling exhausted.

Rather decide on what  your main interests are. Whether it is sipping G&T’s whilst on safari and ending off at the beach. Or spending time in Cape Town and the Winelands.  In either case, we can help you working out the best holiday itinerary. In other words, to fit in all these options at a pace that allows you to relax. Hence, enjoy all that South Africa has to offer.


Cape Town & Winelands

Cape Town and the Winelands are destinations in their own right. However, often the mistake is to think that a night or two here will suffice – wrong!  Cape Town offers a wealth of things to do. For example a full day exploring the Cape Peninsula or a visit up Table Mountain.  Above all, we highly recommend to allow yourself at least a week here. Given that taking in all the sights, a minimum of 4 nights is required.  The Winelands is only a ‘hop & skip’ from Cape Town and easily included as a day trip. However allowing yourself 1-2 nights here will not disappoint, as its a complete contrast to the vibrant Cape Town.


Garden Route

The Garden Route is best explored when basing yourself for 3-4 nights in the Plettenberg Bay or Knysna areas. For the reason that this is the best option to do day trips.  Especially that most places are easy to get to and it saves the continuous bag packing/unpacking stress.  Hence, allow yourself the time to be able to explore and really enjoy the gorgeous surrounds.



Safaris are usually the next biggest spend after you have booked your flights. As much as everyone wants to keep costs down, you will do yourself an injustice by only allowing one night.  The minimum recommended time for any safari lodge is two nights. However, 3-4 nights would be ideal.



The beaches of Natal as well as Mozambique are a great. For this reason, its a nice option to end any holiday in South Africa. Like this, you allow yourself time to just relax and unwind before going home to the busy demands of life. We recommend to allow at least 4-5 nights.

Becoming one of Africa's hottest destinations with its tropical beaches, warm waters and palm trees. Most connections between lodges within Mozambique are achieved by scheduled and charter flights as well as boat transfers, as road networks are not as developed. A great way to end off any African holiday by spending a few days relaxing on the beach and indulging in tropical spoils.
Madikwe & Waterberg
The ‘big five’ game regions of Madikwe Game Reserve and the Waterberg Game Reserve are increasing in popularity and giving Kruger some healthy competition. These areas are malaria free, located within a 3–4 hour drive from Johannesburg and also offer a great safari experience. More
