WHERE TWO OCEANS MEET

SOUTH AFRICA

South Africa is a top safari destination with a mix of traditional safari activities, modern developed cities and activities that can be combined to make a wide diversity of trips to suit all interests.

International flights into Johannesburg and internal connecting flights are plentiful and convenient. It is also the gateway to other southern African destinations so it can often be combined with somewhere else quite easily, for example Victoria Falls, Botswana, Mozambique or Namibia. For those coming from the Northern hemisphere it is a long way to travel compared with East Africa – so that’s something to bear in mind.

The climate is dryer than the more tropical East African region and has a marked seasonal difference between winter and summer.

The East and West coasts have different climates depending on which ocean they are washed by. While Cape Town in the west might be cold, grey and stormy, Durban in the east may be hot and ideal for a beach holiday.
