The Rainbow Nation’ is a term coined by Desmond Tutu to describe the new multi-culturalism of post-apartheid Africa and the coming-together of the various backgrounds of the South African people. South Africa is a fantastic country to visit as it’s full of natural beauty, diverse landscapes and has an amazing food and wine culture. 

Discover the highlights you can experience with us during our guided holidays to South Africa.

1. Spot the Big Five on a Safari

The ‘Big Five’ consists of the Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo and Rhinoceros. This term originally meant they were the five most difficult and dangerous animals to hunt on foot; it would be incredibly lucky to spot all of them! We can enjoy a safari and see other incredible wildlife in Kariega Game Reserve or in Aquila Private Game Reserve on our solo traveller holiday to South Africa.

2. Explore Cape Town

Cape Town, aka ‘The Mother City’, is a cosmopolitan and historic city; it’s the first place in South Africa where European colonists visited.

3. Visit Robben Island

Located almost 7km off the coast in Table Bay, the island is where Nelson Mandela spent 27 years imprisoned for opposing the aparthied regime. We will have a guided tour of the island and museum, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and learn more about this infamous prison.

4. Take an excursion to Table Mountain

Take a cable car up to visit South Africa’s famous landmark, Table Mountain. At 600 million years old, it's one of the oldest mountains in the world; even older than the Andes and the Himalayas.

5. Go on a road trip

The Garden Route is the ultimate South African road trip, it stretches nearly 300km along the coast and it’s name is due to its vast range of wildlife and flora.

 

6. Enjoy wine tasting in Stellenbosch

Wine tasting in South Africa is a must do experience and you will be spoilt for choice; South African wine is highly regarded around the world and there’s a fantastic variety to suit all tastes. Take a scenic and historic drive through the local wine regions and most importantly, enjoy some wine tasting! Discover Stellenbosch, the City of Oaks or ‘Eikestad’ in Afrikaans, the second oldest town and the wine capital of South Africa.

7. Have an encounter with African Penguins

On our guided Cape Peninsula excursion, we’ll discover some of the most breath-taking scenery in the world! We’ll drive along the coast route, overlooking the rocky peninsula and take in the stunning views of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans along the way. We’ll visit Cape Point, Boulders Beach for an up close and personal encounter with African Penguins.
