South Africa is often called a "world in one country", because of its diversity of peoples, plant and animal life, climatic regions and scenic splendours. Exotic combinations of landscapes, people, history and culture offer the traveller a unique South Africa Vacation.
South Africa vacation experiences can include:
* Wildlife and Nature
There's much more to South Africa than the lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo. Hundreds of species of birds and small animals like the cute bushbaby and the curious meerkat abound. And supporting all these is our unparalleled botanical richness.
* Cultural experiences
From modern art galleries to rock art centres, state-of-the-art museums to remote cultural villages, city jazz clubs to open air festivals - some of the ways in which you can experience our rich culture and heritage.
Whatever your adventure craving, South Africa can satisfy it. We have world-class climbing, surfing, diving, hiking, horseback safaris, mountain biking, river rafting - and a host of other adventures.
From the West Coast's wild stretches of sand, coastal towns of the Garden Route to the subtropical shores of the south coast, there's a beach for every reason. Watch the sun rise over the Atlantic or Indian Ocean, work up that perfect tan, or get active with some of the world's best surfing, windsurfing and diving.
For the golf enthusiast, South Africa is a wonderful destination. The country boasts an ideal climate for spending time out on the fairways under the bright African sun, and golfers here are blessed for choice.
* Exciting cities
Our cities are an exciting mix of first- and third-world influences. From happening Cape Town - one of the most beautiful cities in the world - to busy, bustling Johannesburg, each has its own unique attractions.
