South Africa

  • Hi Rob, today is our first day back to work and reality after our wonderful honeymoon. We had the best time of our lives and absolutely loved every second of it. We kept thinking it couldn’t get better and it did. All of the accommodations were superb and it was a great variety of venues. We were so enamored with our room at the Mosselberg! The safari was by far our favorite aspect of the trip. We are so glad we went with Savanna. Everyone was so knowledgeable and warm and the accommodations were spectacular. Spending 4 nights was perfect too, it left us wanting more, but it was enough time to see so many great things and get to know so many wonderful people. Thanks so much for all of your help and putting together such a memorable honeymoon. We will be sure to recommend others to you. Thanks again for making our honeymoon so very special.

South Africa

Introduction

Introduction to the wonderfully diverse South Africa

South Africa, often referred to as ‘the World in one country’, is steeped in natural beauty and culture. The country is considerably more ‘developed’ than the rest of the Africa, and the significant road network and variety of accommodation make it an ideal self-drive destination for many visitors.

In terms of wildlife viewing, South Africa safaris offer some fantastic big game experiences in both malarial and non-malarial areas. This can be on a self-drive basis or on a fully ‘hosted and guided’ basis. South Africa is also a major birding destination, and the extensive coastline offers some incredible marine wildlife experiences. However, the country offers so much more than just wildlife – gourmet retreats, wine-growing regions, the fynbos flower kingdom, colonial history, luxury rail journeys, adventure sports, cultural experiences and stunning natural scenery with harsh deserts, endless golden beaches and ragged mountains are just a few of the other attractions.

The sophisticated infrastructure and diversity of experience that South Africa offers makes it an ideal destination for anyone with a wide range of interests. Honeymooners are incredibly well looked after and families have a fantastic array of activities and options to choose from.

Whatever you think will work best for you, we strongly advise that you will gain much more from your holiday if you speak to a specialist who knows the country intimately, and allow them to help you plan, and arrange, your holiday.
