South Africa: the world in one country

South Africa is often described as the world in one country. The scenically diverse landscapes, contrasting ecosystems and dynamic melting pot of African, Asian and European cultures make it one of the continent’s most fascinating and rewarding countries to visit.

South Africa is a very friendly, service orientated country with standards to match the very best hotels on the continent. It has a world class infrastructure and getting around is efficient, stress free and safe. It is especially good for a high end safari as the accommodation is perhaps more luxurious than you will find anywhere else in Africa.
