In an area so diverse and expansive it would be difficult to choose only one destination, so we recommend you do an extended stay to take in all there is to offer. Olive and wine growing areas such as Riebeeck West and Tulbagh are richly entwined in the history of South Africa. We also have some of the most amazing hiking trails in the Cederberg Mountains where one can experience the cultural diversity of the original people with the massive amounts of rock art paintings dating to the First Nation people.
There are stunning beaches in Langebaan where water based activities are extremely popular and where we taste the most authentic cuisine comprising mainly of seafood. Golf is also a very popular sport with three renowned courses in the vicinity.
The RAMSAR site of the West Coast National Park is home to an abundance of migratory birds and waders and a few houseboats located on the lagoon.
The landscape is so diverse in this area where you will move from farmlands and beaches to semi-desert and back to orange groves.
The Garden Route named for the natural forests of indigenous trees is the adventure playground of the Western Cape. Hot air ballooning, ziplining, bungee jumping and shark cage diving are some of the activities on offer. Despite all this extreme sport, we can have a more relaxing time walking on the warm beaches of the Indian ocean or hiking trails of the indigenous people in nature reserves preserved for the Cradle of Human Culture.
We will go through areas such as Montagu, Barrydale and Oudtshoorn continuing to Swellendam, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay...
The Kruger National Park is the biggest National Park in South Africa. Located in the Northeast of the country, it forms part of the Transfrontier parks with Zimbabwe in the North and Mozambique in the East. The park spans for 19633 square kilometres (7580 square miles)!
Having been established in 1898 by Paul Kruger, then President of the Transvaal Republic, as the Sabie Game Reserve, it merged with Shinwedzi Game Reeserve in 1927 and thus the Kruger National Park was formed after the proclamation of the National Parks Act. James Stevenson-Hamilton, a Scot, was the first warden of the park that has now become the most important conservation area within South Africa.
More than 300 archaeological sites of Stone Age humans have been found in the KNP. There are many examples of San rock art to be found throughout the park, and in more recent times, San (bushmen) and Iron Age people lived in the area. The first wilderness trails were established in 1957 by Dr. Ian Player. This is the forerunner of the park we know today.
There are a number of private game reserves bordering KNP, which we call Greater Kruger. These are game reserves where fences have been dropped in order to allow the animals to traverse freely. There is nothing as luxurious as these game reserves where you find game lodges as well as luxury tented camps and tented camps for those who wish to get much closer to nature. The most exhilarating feeling is on a game drive where you encounter one of the big five animals. At night when you hear the roar of the lion or the belching of the hippos or even trumpeting of an elephant, is when you feel the most pleasure...there is no comparable experience to driving in an open safari vehicle and seeing what you have only imagined before...

Bordering Zimbabwe, you can fly across the Victoria Falls and see what Dr. David Livingstone saw when he first walked and and set his sights upon this amazing natural wonder of the world.
The former Southern Rhodesia is named for the great ruins and civilisation known as Greater Zimbabwe. The great ruins close to the Matopo Hills is an area known as the "place of stones" and the mythical stone bird is also the symbol of Zimbabwe. The Victoria Falls is most likely the most famous attraction in Zimbabwe. This is one of the seven natural wonders of the world with the falls dropping down for 108m at its height. Hwange National Park and Mana Pools are the most popular game reserves in Zimbabwe.
