South Africa has to be one of the most diverse and visually appealing countries on the continent, offering sights and possibilities no other countries can rival.

Here you can be surrounded in the sophisticated nightlife of the waterfront area of Cape Town, or stand at the point where two oceans meet. You can immerse yourself in the tastes and flavor of the Cape Winelands at Franschhoek before driving along the world famous Garden Route at your own pace, to beautiful Plettenburg Bay. And then comes the thrill of seeing big cats, elephants, rhino and more on a safari around a 53,390 hectare private reserve next to the Kruger National Park.

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do.
